Manchester United 0-0 Hull City: Player ratings

by Leo Nieboer


David de Gea 6 – Had more or less nothing to do against Marco Silva’s men all evening.

Antonio Valencia 7 – Perhaps Manchester United’s most enthusiastic player: untroubled at the back and unyielding going forward, latching on to a number of long passes and creating problems for Hull’s back four.

Phil Jones 6 – Delivered a solid performance at the back but limped off early in the second half with what looked like a pulled muscle.

Marcos Rojo 7 – Another powerful, assured display from the Argentine, replete with a series of well-timed tackles and clever interceptions.

Daley Blind 6 – A comfortable presence at the back, always looking to keep the ball moving. Offered very little going forward.

Michael Carrick 6 – Provided his usual poise and control at the core of midfield before being taken off at half time.

Ander Herrera 6 – Placed himself at the heart of Man United’s first half onslaught, making vital interceptions and bursting forward on a regular basis, but faded as the game went on, perhaps fatigued after recent exertions in midfield

Paul Pogba 5 – Spurned a fantastic chance in the first half and, in similar fashion to the game against Liverpool, never really recovered.

Henrikh Mkhitaryan 6 – Produced some nice touches and kept play moving in the first half but lacked his usual mesmerising influence.

Marcus Rashford 6 – Gave David Meyler a number of problems with his raw pace but couldn’t offer much in the form of final product.

Zlatan Ibrahimovic 5 – A game to forget for the Swede: shanked wide his only chance on goal and prevented United from breaching the last man by dropping too deep on numerous occasions.

Substitutes

Wayne Rooney 6 – Came on at half time and, aside from a few smart touches, did little to change the mood of the game.
