2016/17 Player Ratings: Hull City 0-1 Manchester United – brilliant Rashford

David de Gea – Literally had nothing to do except watch. 6/10

Antonio Valencia – Ran forward and offered an outlet throughout, but lacked that cutting edge on this occasion. 6/10

Eric Bailly – What a special talent. He broke up any Hull attack, and I lost count of how many times he won the ball back and got United moving forward again. 8/10

Daley Blind – Such an intelligent football. Although he doesn’t have the pace or height, his positioning ingenuity more than makes up for it. 7/10

Luke Shaw – Absolute baller. It’s brilliant to see him playing so well after that injury last season. 7/10


Marouane Fellaini – Picked up a yellow card in the first half, and from that point onwards struggled to play his natural game. 5/10

Paul Pogba – Pretty quiet, and certainly didn’t have his shooting boots on. The more he plays with his new teammates, the better he’ll get. 6/10

Juan Mata – Unfortunate to be subbed off to be honest. Thought he shown glimpses of brilliance and some nice touches. 6/10

Wayne Rooney – Truly awful, but one moment of brilliance late on helped settle the match. 4/10

Anthony Martial – Pretty lacklustre. Couldn’t beat his man, and his passing was wayward. 5/10

Zlatan Ibrahimovic – Looked a threat in the first half, but in the second 45 his touch let him down a bit. 6/10

Subs:

Henrikh Mkhitaryan – Helped change the game. Drifted past his man brilliantly, and shown just how good he can be. Has to start in the Manchester derby.

Marcus Rashford – What a supremely talented individual. The Hull back five literally looked scared to death of his pace and awareness. He scored the all-important goal to steal the headlines.

Chris Smalling – Not enough time to mark.
