FRANTIC FESTIVITY

Relive the best action images from the Barclays Premier League.

Hull scored six second-half goals to rout Fulham 6-0 Saturday in a Premier League game highlighted by Tom Huddlestone celebrating his first goal since 2011 by cutting off a piece of his hair on the sideline.

Hull captain Robert Koren scored twice, while Ahmed El Mohamady, George Boyd and Matt Fryatt also netted as Fulham collapsed completely after the break.

Huddlestone made it 4-0 in the 67th minute - Hull's third goal in seven minutes - to end a goal drought stretching back 2 1/2 years. The midfielder had pledged not to cut his hair until he scored again, and after netting he ran over to the sideline to let club physio Rob Price sheer off one of his long locks.

Fulham took a huge step backward after a mini-revival under new manager Rene Meulensteen and remains mired in the relegation zone.

Aston Villa 1, Swansea 1

Aston Villa ended a four-match losing streak thanks to an unimpressive draw with visiting Swansea.

Villa, booed at home on Thursday after losing to Crystal Palace, began positively and was rewarded with its first goal in the first half in the league campaign thanks to Gabriel Agbonlahor's patient shot in the seventh minute.

But Swansea went after an equalizer and came through eight minutes from halftime when Roland Lamah headed in a cross at the far post. Swansea was in charge of the second half but couldn't convert chances and remained without a win for a fifth straight match.
