Aston Villa leapfrogged Arsenal into fourth place as an own-goal by Kamil Zayatte gifted them a 1-0 victory over Hull City in the last Premier League match of the year.

Zayatte turned his attempted clearance from Ashley Young's cross past goalkeeper Boaz Myhill to extend Villa's unbeaten sequence to eight, while Hull must be staring anxiously at the bottom three as they have only won once in their last 11 games. They looked to be on course to salvage a point in time added on when referee Steve Bennett awarded them a penalty for handball but after consulting with a linesman he correctly rescinded his decision as former Real Madrid target Young had not handled the ball, though he did raise his arm as the ball went over the bar.

His Hull counterpart Phil Brown - who had been so infuriated by the abject display of his players in the first-half against Manchester City last Friday when they were losing 4-0 at half-time he gave them their half-time talk on the pitch - accepted that his side had stepped up to the plate. fifa
