Elmohamady on target against Hull | VIDEO
Ahmed Elmohamady returns to haunt former club as Steve Bruce’s men get promotion challenge off to flying start
Aston Villa beat Hull 3-1 on Monday thanks to a goal from ex-Tiger Ahmed Elmohamady.
Elmohamady pounced on an error from David Marshall to punish his former club.
Hull actually enjoyed a dominant spell either side of the break, with the game locked at 1-1, until Grealish, socks round ankles like a throwback from the seventies, began to pod and probe, putting Hull’s defence under increasing pressure.
Finally, on 70 minutes, keeper David Marshall cracked, with a poor clearance straight to former Hull favourite Elmohamady upfield.
The Egyptian international – who spent five years at Hull, four under Bruce – swapped passes with Conor Hourihane before advancing and beating Marshall with a crisp 15 yard shot.
Five minutes later, the game was over and so was Villa’s uncertain and depressing summer.
