"People might say we always fall at the last hurdle, but you have to look at our previous home games as well", Maguire, who captained Hull on Saturday, said.

Silva opened the scoring inside two minutes and was untouchable as City's conductor until he went off to a standing ovation in the 67th, while De Bruyne also scored and set up goals for center backs Vincent Kompany and Nicolas Otamendi.

United, who travel to Arsenal, and Liverpool, who host Southampton, are both in action on Sunday.

Jones said: "Jordan's showed by consistently performing well in this league how good he is".

If Mourinho does make wholesale changes, long-term nemesis Arsene Wenger will have no excuse as he chases a first Premier League win over the former Chelsea boss. "There are four incredible teams fighting for the final two places in the top four".

While Jordan has not seen the kind of success that his older brother, Andre, enjoyed during his spell at Swansea, he has shown promise that he would fight till the end to help them avoid the drop.

Four consecutive home wins had put Hull's fate firmly in their own hands but, given the chance to pull five points clear of third-from-bottom Swansea City, they suffered an attack of the jitters that could prove fatal.

John O'Shea flicked on a corner and Billy Jones launched into a diving header that flashed past Eldin Jakupovic.

"Ultimately there was big tension in some of the team", admitted Silva after the game. "We need to be calm in some moments", Silva said.

"You owe everyone in the league to do that because the games we've got coming up are important to the likes of Hull and Swansea".

"There's a good solid base of 10 or so players who I think will be good, but obviously that won't be enough and we'll need to add more to have a side that would give us every opportunity".

Fernando Llorente won it for Paul Clement's team after 29 minutes with a close-range header from Jordan Ayew's cross.

The defeat left Hull hoping for good tidings from South Wales later in the day, but they did not arrive; having beaten Everton 1-0, Swansea are now a point ahead of Hull and have nominally kinder fixtures to come.
