Hull City need to finish the season strongly if they hope to avoid relegation from the Premier League.
Hull City manager Marco Silva
With the season beginning to reach the business end, some clubs will begin to turn some of their attention towards next season and the potential incomings and outgoings that will help them achieve their ambitions.
While Hull City's precarious position in the Premier League will prevent them looking beyond their next 13 games, here are five players who have disappointed this term who will surely be starting to feel the pressure to perform before their futures with the club are called into question...
David Marshall has played 17 games for Hull since joining in the summer, and is still awaiting his first clean sheet. His form has been overshadowed by the much more impressive Eldin Jakupovic.
Hull City's Ahmed Elmohamady
If Hull fans were asked at the beginning of the season who were likely to be the players that would make contributions that would keep them up, Ahmed Elmohamady would have surely featured fairly high on the list. However, the wide-man has contributed no goals and just one assist in the top flight this term.
Markus Henriksen joined on loan in the summer, before his switch was made permanent in January. Unfortunately, the Norway international has shown very little during his time at KCOM Stadium to suggest that he was deserving of a permanent deal.
Hull City's Will Keane
With Hull previously lacking striker options, the last thing they needed was for one of their permanent signings to be struck down with a long-term injury. Will Keane is yet to score for the Tigers, and could be on the sidelines for a while yet.
Dieumerci Mbokani appears to be in danger of being relegated from the Premier League two years in a row, having gone down with Norwich last year. The striker is also awaiting his first Hull goal even after 11 appearances for the club.
