2016/17 Player Ratings: Hull City 2-1 Manchester United

David de Gea – Made a few decent saves in the first half, but couldn’t stop the penalty. His distribution was decent. 5/10

Matteo Darmian – Weirdly, he looks more comfortable out on the left than he does on the right. His positioning was awful at times, and he was at fault for Hull’s second. 3/10

Chris Smalling – Looked lethargic. At times he just lost his concentration far too easily and allowed his man in. 3/10

Phil Jones – Pretty solid as per usual. Didn’t really give the Hull forwards a sniff. 6/10

Marcos Rojo – Shifted to left-back and struggled on occasion. Grew into the game, and unlucky not to score in the second 45 as his header rattled the bar. Gave away the penalty, but there was nothing in it at all. 5/10

Michael Carrick – Allowed Hull’s midfielders to bypass him far too easily for an hour or so. Not his best outing. 4/10

Ander Herrera – Lively, but that’s about it. Like most had a really bad first 45 minutes. Improved and began to take control as the match wore on. 6/10

Paul Pogba – Scored the all-important leveller on the night to calm the United nerves. Had a real poor first-half, though. 4/10

Marcus Rashford – Shown flashes of his pace down the flanks, but that’s about it. Not a natural wide-man. 5/10

Jesse Lingard – Drifted in and out of the game, but struggled to impose his pace and energy for the most part. Must improve to keep Martial & Mkhitaryan on the bench. 3/10

Zlatan Ibrahimovic – Had a really poor first half. Held the ball up well in the second. 5/10

Subs:

Wayne Rooney – Came on and just helped his teammates see it through.

Marouane Fellaini – Not enough time to mark.
