Sam Allardyce thanked the Crystal Palace board for the financial support that helped him to save the south London club from relegation and end a season that started with his ill-fated short reign as England manager on a high note. "I want the same attitude and commitment as last weekend but with the end ingredient added".
Crystal Palace secured their Premier League status on Sunday with a convincing 4-0 victory over Hull City, who suffered relegation with one game to go in the season. Three wins from their first three games got Wanderers up and running, but a run of 12 games without a win either side of Christmas left them in trouble.
Following their absolute collapse last week against Manchester City, where they lost 5-0, Palace will need to put that loss behind them and focus on what's ahead.
Christian Benteke doubled Palace's advantage, heading home unmarked in the box from Jason Puncheon's corner before Hull were unfortunate not to be offered a lifeline back into the match - both Martin Atkinson and his linesman missed Puncheon handling Kamil Grosicki's free kick in the box.
Silva sent on Shaun Maloney and Jarrod Bowen at half-time, but Hull lacked poise and Palace held them at bay easily.
Following Hull City's defeat and Swansea City's confirmation of staying up, he tweeted again today: "We are staying up!"
Patrick van Aanholt's strike was the th #PL goal of the season! We have to deal with the emotion of the game on Sunday and come out on top. "If we don't concede a goal, we stay in the Premier League".

"Because we didn't make any mistakes they couldn't capitalise on any mistakes whereas at Man City I needed a calculator to calculate how many mistakes we made". "It's not a good moment". Don't waste it lads, they were terrific performances, in a period of time where we never expected to put ourselves in this position we're in now.
After a surprisingly good start to the season which followed a tumultuous summer that saw Steve Bruce leave the club, Mike Phelan was sacked at the start of January.
- Curtis Davies is the 13th player to play in at least four Premier League relegation campaigns (4).
Allardyce has a great record of keeping teams in the Premier League, and he rates saving Palace as his toughest challenge yet due to their tricky run of fixtures.
"I think because of the run-in, the size of the teams we have had to play, this was the hardest (team to keep up)".
Victory over Hull ensures they are guaranteed a fifth straight season in the Premier League.
