Tottenham 1-0 Hull City Highlights
Frustrated for long periods, the hosts were relieved when Soldado finished after Ahmed Elmohamady handled.
Soldado had earlier been denied by Steve Harper, while Paulinho hooked over the bar.
Hull saw Tom Huddlestone volley over in the first half but were increasingly pressed back in the second and were ultimately undone from the spot.
