James Milner showed why he is a contender for England's World Cup squad by inspiring Aston Villa to a 3-0 home win over Hull.
Milner set up the opening goal for central defender Richard Dunne and scored the second himself before half-time with an exquisite chip. John Carew added a third from the penalty spot two minutes from time.
To make matters worse for the Tigers, midfielder Jimmy Bullard had to be substituted after 18 minutes due to an injury to his left knee which has been responsible for lengthy lay-offs in the past.
