Manchester City produced a sensational performance to beat Hull 5-1 and lift the pressure on under-fire manager Mark Hughes.
Inspirational record-signing Robinho and striker Felipe Caicedo both struck twice as Hughes' men tore into stunned Hull with four first-half goals at Eastlands.
Hull salvaged some pride with a Craig Fagan consolation goal after embarrassed manager Phil Brown delivered his half-time talk on the pitch. But the visitors remained distinctly second best and Stephen Ireland grabbed a fifth to lift his side out of the Barclays Premier League relegation zone.
