Hull City 0-1 Manchester United: Player Ratings

by Sam Peoples

David de Gea 6 – Hardly called into action. Could have done with an umbrella.

Luke Shaw 7 – Sensational defending to stop Snodgrass in the first half. Still so surprised how well he is settling back into football, really doesn’t look like he’s missed a year through injury.

Eric Bailly 8* Man of the Match – Dives in so much but his timing has been excellent so far. I do fear it might catch him out at some point this season. That being said, he was ace to watch today and is building a lovely partnership with Blind.

Daley Blind 7 – I tell you what, it’s going to be difficult for Jose Mourinho to drop Blind and bring Chris Smalling back in.

Antonio Valencia 7 – The man re-born continues. Looks very comfortable at right-back.

Marouane Fellaini 5 – Looked like the Fellaini of old in the first half. Undisciplined. A little better in the second half but not as good as his first few performances this season, at leasth e regained his discipline.

Paul Pogba 6 – Not as glittering as his debut but still offered plenty to United. Got better in the latter stages.

Juan Mata 6 – Think he played OK but United have such a lack of pace in attack when he plays that I feel it hurts us going forward.

Wayne Rooney 3 – Nothing short of woeful in the first half. Almost gave the ball away every time he had possession. Why didn’t Paul Scholes or Rio Ferdinand criticise him? Why is he somehow exempt from criticism?

Anthony Martial 6 – Very much played within himself, doesn’t look confident at all.

Zlatan Ibrahimovic – Can Zlatan do it on a wet Saturday evening in Hull? No he can’t.

Substitutes

Henrikh Mkhitaryan 6 – Mkhitaryan starting over Rooney in the No.10 should be an absolute given. Offers so much more.

Marcus Rashford– Completely changed the dynamic in attack for United. He was so dangerous from the moment he came on. Love the kid. What a goal to win it!
