Commentary

Thanks for joining me for today's game, hope to see you next time!
Hull City meanwhile suffer their fourth consecutive Premier League loss, and the nature of this heavy defeat will do little to lift spirits. Andrew Robertson's injury today makes their squad look even more threadbare and Mike Phelan will undoubtedly be concerned about his team's prospects.
Hosts Bournemouth were irrepressible today, and swept Hull aside thanks to some precision set pieces and fantastic wing play. Junior Stanislas had a hand in four of the goals, notching two goals and two assists; while Charlie Daniels, Steve Cook, Callum Wilson and Dan Gosling also got amongst the goals. There was a brief wobble when Ryan Mason equalised for Hull in the first half, but the Cherries responded instantly and never looked back.
BOURNEMOUTH 6-1 HULL CITY
And there goes the final whistle...
Credit to Hull who are continuing to push forward here, but they have been second best all over the pitch today.
The Vitality Stadium is bouncing! It is a huge scoreline and this is a huge performance from Bournemouth.
C. Daniels
Assist
AFC Bournemouth
It was a mazy run from Daniels and the Hull defenders could not get near him. The left back did well to spot Gosling in space as well.
D. Gosling
Goal
AFC Bournemouth
GOOOAAALLL, THEY JUST KEEP ON COMING! Gosling has been on the pitch less than ten minutes but already gets himself on the score sheet as he slams the ball past Marshall from the edge of the box.
B. Afobe
C. Wilson
AFC Bournemouth
Wilson soaks up the fans' applause and makes way for Benik Afobe.
J. King
Assist
AFC Bournemouth
King's corner swirls over Marshall and his defenders and is met emphatically by Wilson.
C. Wilson
Goal
AFC Bournemouth
GOAL!!! WILSON MAKES IT 5! The striker has held the ball up wonderfully for Bournemouth today and gets his reward in the form of a headed goal. He meets the corner convincingly to make it 5-1 to the hosts.
Bournemouth come close to unlocking the Hull defence once more, as Arter and Wilson exchange posession before eventually forcing a corner.
D. Gosling
J. Wilshere
AFC Bournemouth
Wilshere still hasn't completed a full 90 minutes for the Cherries, but the England international has applied himself well today and appears to have the full backing of the crowd at the Vitality. He is replaced by Dan Gosling.
D. Meyler
R. Mason
Hull City
Hull make their final change as David Meyler replaces Mason in midfield.
Slightly concerning moment for Bournemouth as Cook goes down off the ball holding his head. He still appears to be feeling the effects of an earlier knock. The physio takes a look at him and he is back up on his feet and looking steady.
Hull are staring down the barrell of a fourth straight Premier League defeat and have certainly lost their early season momentum.
Bournemouth have won just one of their last 12 league meetings with Hull (D4 L7), but they look well on their way to improving that record here today.
CLOSE -Wilshere clearly looking to get in on the act as he carries the ball past Hull's midfield with ease and forces Marshall to make a smart stop,
Diomande breaks forward and draws Boruc from his goal. The Polish stopper does well to smother the threat and concede the corner.
A. Smith
Assist
AFC Bournemouth
You can see why there have been calls for Smith to earn an England call-up when he provides assists like that. Sterling work from the full back.
J. Stanislas
Goal
AFC Bournemouth
WONDERFUL GOAL!!! Stanislas adds his second in style as he finishes off a wonderful Bournemouth move. Smith and King link up well, and the right back bursts into the box to provide a slide rule pass that picks out Stanislas, who makes no mistake with his finish.
A. Diomande
A. Robertson
Hull City
Injury forces Robertson from the pitch, with Diomande moving into midfield and Clucas filling in at left back.
J. King
J. Ibe
AFC Bournemouth
And that's the last action Ibe will see today. He makes way for Josh King to the soundtrack of a standing ovation from the home crowd.
CLOSE - Wilshere gets his head up and picks out Ibe on the edge of the Hull box. The winger makes himself a yard of space but he fires narrowly wide.
Penalty appeals from the Hull end as Ryan Mason is brought down by Francis. Referee Lee Mason waves away the claims though.
A. Robertson
Yellow Card
Hull City
Robertson goes into the book as he illegally puts a stop to Harry Arter's marauding run.
CHANCE - Robertson bursts down the left wing and whips in a dangerous cross. No Hull player is able to meet it though.
T. Huddlestone
S. Maloney
Hull City
A change of tact from Hull, as Tom Huddlestone moves into the middle to push Clucas out wide.
Snodgrass forces a corner off Ibe as Hull look for a way back into the game. His corner is hit deep but is collected well by Boruc.
GREAT SAVE! Cook comes close to doubling his tally as he heads goalwards from a corner but a fine reaction save from Marshall keeps the scoreline respectable.
Hull start the second half brightly, with Mason and Maloney combining well but failing to breach the Bournemouth defence.
And the game is back on, no changes from either side at half-time
The teams are back out on the pitch and we are about to get back underway...
Hosts Bournemouth go into half-time with a two goal cushion and have looked comfortably the stronger outfit today. Daniels opened the scoring with a thumping volley before Hull were thrown a lifeline by Mason's deflected equaliser. The revival was short-lived though, as the Cherries struck back through a Cook header before Stanislas extended their lead from the spot just before the half.
And there's the half-time whistle, BOURNEMOUTH 3-1 HULL CITY
J. Stanislas
Penalty Goal
AFC Bournemouth
AND IT'S IN! - Stanislas makes no mistake from the spot and extends Bournemouth's lead to two.
R. Snodgrass
Yellow Card
Hull City
A senseless challenge from Snodgrass who rightly picks up a booking.
PENALTY!!! Snodgrass flies into a wreckless challenge in the Hull area and scythes down Wilson to concede a penalty.
The game is opening up here, as Hull surge forward and Maloney fires over from the edge of the box.
J. Stanislas
Assist
AFC Bournemouth
Stanislas again causing problems from set pieces, Hull haven't been able to deal with his deliveries.
S. Cook
Goal
AFC Bournemouth
GOAL, A THUMPING HEADER!!! Cook makes amends for his hand in Hull's goal, as the big centre-half meets Stanislas' cross firmly to nod the hosts back into the lead.
Bournemouth win a free kick on the right wing as they look to get back in front before the half time whistle.
The tide appears to be turning at the Vitality Stadium, as Mike Phelan's men put another testing cross into Bournemouth's box.
J. Livermore
Assist
Hull City
Livermore gets the assist, but it's a horrible moment for Steve Cook, who conceded possession before providing the deflection that wrongfooted his goalkeeper.
R. Mason
Goal
Hull City
A GOAL FROM OUT OF NOTHING! Ryan Mason gets the visitors back in the game against the run of play, as his shot from the edge of the box deflects up and over Boruc and into the back of the net.
Hull are finding things really tough down on the south coast at the moment. Bournemouth's pressure has been relentless, but Mike Phelan's men manage to string together a few passes in the opposition half and force a corner.
He is absolutely everywhere at the moment! Jordon Ibe drifts inside to collect the ball, takes on Clucas and Jake Livermore before firing just over from outside the box.
CLOSE! Stanislas' strike deflects off Robertson, and the ball loops just wide of Hull's far post and out for a Bournemouth corner.
Snodgrass crashes into the back of Daniels on the edge of the Hull box and concedes a free kick. Again though it is a comfortable catch for Marshall.
OFF THE BAR! Ibe and Wilson combine again as the winger reaches the by-line before cutting the ball back for Wilson. Marshall looks well beaten, but Wilson's strike slams against the cross bar.
Elmohamady is turned inside out by Ibe, and the Egyptian trips the Bournemouth winger to concede a freekick. Ibe's inswinger is dealt with comfortably by Marshall though.
SAVE - Ibe again breaks between the Hull lines and finds Callum Wilson. Wilson works himself some space but his effort is a btame one, and is gathered with ease by Marshall.
S. Clucas
Yellow Card
Hull City
Sam Clucas becomes the first player to go into the book, as the Hull midfielder clatters into Adam Smith.
Daniels is played into trouble in his own half by a short Simon Francis pass, and Snodgrass almost picks his pocket. The referee lets Bournemouth off the hook as he blows for a foul on Daniels.
Robert Snodgrass picks up the ball on the half-way line and drives at the Bournemouth defence, but his pass to Will Keane is picked off by Steve Cook.
Hull are looking to bring their front three into play. Andrew Robertson and Shaun Maloney combine well down the left but Adam Smith blocks the attempted cross.
Ibe surges forwards again and is playing with real purpose today.
Hull are looking for a response here, and are looking to harry Bournemouth's defenders and give them no tima on the ball.
C. Daniels
Goal
AFC Bournemouth
GOAL!!! That didn't take long! After applying all the early pressure Bournemouth's efforts are rewarded as Charlie Daniels reacts rapidly to fire past David Marshall on the volley. The ball ricochets back off the post from a Junior Stanislas free kick and the left back makes no mistake with his finish.
Wilshere and Ibe pull off a nice one-two, but Harry Maguire is quick to close the Arsenal loanee down
A purposeful run from Jordon Ibe sees the winger break into the box, but he is unable to fire off a clean shot. Plenty of Hull bodies back there
Hull looking resplendent in their bright purple kit steal the ball early but an aimless Ahmed Elmohamady cross does little to bother Artur Boruc who collects comfortably
And we're off! Jack Wilshere gets us underway...
Both teams are out on the pitch, and kick-off is just moments away...
Hull substitutes: Meyler, Huddlestone, Hernandez, Jakupovic, Weir, Diomande, Henderson
Bournemouth substitutes: Gosling, Ake, Afobe, King, Federici, Fraser, Mings

TEAM NEWS: Jack Wilshere gets another start for the hosts in midfield, with Junior Stanislas and key man Jordon Ibe continuing in the wide areas. Callum Wilson will be trying to get another goal, after breaking his drought against Watford recently, and the back four is unchanged. Josh King is on the bench, and Harry Arter starts despite previously having a knock.
The visitors have won merely one of their last five games in all competitions, and come into this fixture off the back of consecutive defeats to Liverpool and Chelsea respectively. After a tough run of games, this is the Tigers chance to roar back into life.
