Ratings: Hull City 0-1 Manchester United – Premier League 2016/17

Hull City

Manchester United beat Hull City at the KCOM Stadium on Saturday evening after Marcus Rashford, who replaced Juan Mata in the 71st minute of the match scoring at the death to take all three points and head into the international break with a 100% record so far this season. United had nearly 62% possession and was the better side for the majority of the match. Hull seemed to be good at playing behind the ball, desperately defending everything United were throwing at them. United had 29 shots on goal; nine on target, 12 off target and eight of them blocked. United was the better side and looked to be getting to grips with the ways of Mourinho, which seems to have brought the best out of the players thus far, despite the frustrating display today. Marcus Rashford dropped by England manager Sam Allardyce with him dropping down to the England U21’s seems to have thrown an egg towards the new manager, aiming for his face. This one could be embarrassing for the one the FA thought was the right man for the job.

Manchester United

David De Gea

1 David De Gea

As usual, he didn’t have much to do, but he played well when called upon and grabbed a clean sheet.

Antonio Valencia

25 Antonio Valencia

Valencia was bright moving forward. There was too much space between him and Bailly at times, and his crosses went wayward as the pressure mounted, but it was a bright performance.

Eric Bailly

3 Eric Bailly

Bailly was solid again. He was caught out of position once, but it was a solid display of composure and ball-winning from the Ivorian.

Daley Blind

17 Daley Blind

Blind and Bailly’s efforts allowed United to push forward and score at the end. Blind, though, was a class above every other player on the pitch for United. He did everything expected of him in a world class performance.

Luke Shaw

23 Luke Shaw

Shaw was also excellent throughout the game, and he’s so incredible to have down the left flank. He’s the most assured player on the pitch and doesn’t even show mistakes.

Marouane Fellaini

27 Marouane Fellaini

Fellaini was still decent, but not that great today. He was caught out of position a couple of times, allowing Hull to get in behind. He was still dominant in the air and on the ground, though.

Paul Pogba

6 Paul Pogba

Pogba looked assured and did well to draw fouls moving forward. He was a rock defensively, but Hull did a lot to prevent him from getting too much space.

Juan Mata

8 Juan Mata

It was an average performance from Mata. He did some things right and some wrong, but ultimately didn’t influence the game before exiting for Rashford in the 71st.

Wayne Rooney

10 Wayne Rooney

Rooney’s rating was boosted after his wonderful assist at the end. However, from minutes 1 to 91, he was horrible in every aspect of the game. That’s all I’m going to say on the matter.

Anthony Martial

11 Anthony Martial

Martial, similar to Mata, had his moments but was ultimately ineffective before exiting for Rashford in the 60th.

Zlatan Ibrahimovic

9 Zlatan Ibrahimovic

Again, similar to Martial and Mata, Ibrahimovic had some neat flicks and tricks but his first touch let him down in situations and he couldn’t influence the score line.



Henrikh Mkhitaryan

22 Henrikh Mkhitaryan

Replaced Anthony Martial. He came on with devastating impact. Hull couldn’t handle him and he won quite a few fouls. Mkhitaryan looks top-notch.

Marcus Rashford

19 Marcus Rashford

Replaced Juan Mata. It was wonderful. After not being selected from England, Rashford came on and showed everything. United has another top talent on their hands.

Chris Smalling

12 Chris Smalling

Replaced Wayne Rooney at the death. Did not have enough time to make an impact.
