HULL, England — Goals from Ahmed Elmohamady and Nikica Jelavic ensured Everton's festive flop continued with a fourth straight Premier League defeat as the Toffees moved closer to the relegation zone with a 2-0 loss to strugglers Hull on Thursday.

Everton wanted to banish defeats by Southampton, Stoke and Newcastle but instead was brushed aside by opponents who had won just once in their last 12 matches, with a late red card for Antolin Alcaraz rubbing salt into the wounds.

Gareth Barry was exposed in an unfamiliar back-three position but an Everton side that welcomed back key men Phil Jagielka, Kevin Mirallas, Steven Naismith and Ross Barkley was second best at every turn.

A rare headed opener from Elmohamady in the 33rd was followed 10 minutes later by a neatly taken sixth goal of the season from Jelavic.
