Hull player ratings versus Manchester United

Manchester United's Eric Bailly in action with Hull City's Abel Hernandez

Hull City lost 1-0 at home to Manchester United with Marcus Rashford scoring a late winner.

Eldin Jakupovic

7/10 - Under an onslaught of red jerseys, Jakupovic dealt with every shot that came his way from United's multi-million-pound strike force. Nothing he could have done for the goal.

Andrew Robertson

6.5/10 - Put in one excellent ball to the back post that Snodgrass could have converted for a surprise Hull lead. Solid in defence, although Juan Mata did flummox him on one occasion and send him to the turf in the build-up to Rooney's first-half chance.

Curtis Davies

STAR MAN 9/10 - 15 clearances. Six blocks. Davies seemed to become England's number one defender on social media during a 90-minute performance where he almost held off United himself. Blocked expertly with his chest in the first-half when Rooney looked nailed on to score.

David Meyler

6.5/10 - Lucky not to give away a penalty when Antonio Valencia's cross careered into the Irishman's slightly outstretched arm. Almost found glory in injury-time but blazed over.

Robert Snodgrass 

6/10 - Would have been unhappy that he was unable to score Robertson's pinpoint cross in the first-half, in the incident that caused his injury as he slid into the post. Soldiered on but had to relent seconds into the second-half. First-half free-kick had De Gea beaten but skimmed the outside of the post.

Samuel Clucas

6.5/10 - Paul Pogba did not have the chance to exert as much of an influence on the game as he would have liked and Clucas can take some of the praise for that. Harried and pressed the men in red all day. 

Jake Livermore

7.5/10 - The midfielder put in an excellent shift in an unfamiliar defensive role, keeping tabs on all United's attackers throughout the match.

Tom Huddlestone

8/10 - Came closest of anyone in Hull colours to snatching a goal with his deflected, long-range effort. Hull's promising attacks were few, but invariably they started with a probing pass from Huddlestone. 

Ahmed Elmohamady

6/10 - It was Elmohamady's lapse in concentration that allowed Rooney to ghost past for the goal, no doubt fatigue-induced after a marathon spell of backs-to-the-wall stuff for Hull. 

Adama Diomande

6/10 - In a defensive showing, Diomande had minimal opportunity to do anything, and when the ball did come his way Bailly and Blind were usually there to win it back.

Abel Hernandez 

6/10 - As with Diomande, Hernandez saw little of the ball but was well-marshalled when he did.

Shaun Maloney (47' for Snodgrass)

6/10 - Maloney had no opportunity to show what he can do as by the time he entered the fray Hull were in full survival mode.

Harry Maguire (83' for Hernandez)

6/10 - Came on to bolster Hull's defence in the dying moments.
