Hull City 0-1 Manchester United: Hull player ratings as they're beaten in final seconds
Tom Huddlestone battles Paul Pogba at the KCOM stadium on Saturday.

Mike Phelan has every reason to be proud of his men after they held their own against Manchester United, despite still having injury problems. The Tigers were seemingly holding on to a point before Wayne Rooney crossed for Marcus Rashford who had a tap in for the win.

Many would believe Hull deserved at least a point, but who shone individually for them? Here's our player ratings. 

Goalkeeper and Defence

Eldin Jakupovic: The Bosnian shot-stopper made some vital saves when Hull were under pressure. However, he was helpless and needed help from his defenders for the goal but this shouldn't tarnish what would have been a good game for him. (7 out of ten) 

Ahmed Elmohamady: He managed to keep the tricky Anthony Martial at bay during the game. But was beaten by Wayne Rooney in the final seconds as the United skipper crossed for the winner. Despite that was consistent as always. (6)

Jake Livermore: Still filling in at the back and still not looking out of place. He was troubled by United's attacking prowess on a couple of occasions, but dealt with them for the majority of the game, keeping his composure throughout. (7)

Curtis Davies: Hull's best player on the pitch yet again. He was able to manage the presence of Zlatan Ibrahimovic, not allowing him to dominate as he did a week prior against Southampton. He produced many good blocks and interceptions but in spite of all his good effort, he was unable to get a second clean sheet of the season. (8)

Andrew Robertson: Was a force going forward as he usually is. Although, defensively, he was constantly troubled by the surging runs from Antonio Valencia and couldn't stop many of his deliveries into the box. (6)

Midfield and Attack

David Meyler: He had a tough role of containing the creativity of Juan Mata and when Hull did have the ball on the attack, Meyler didn't pose much except a half chance from the edge of the box which he put over the bar. (6) 

Tom Huddlestone: Wasn't able to be as effective going forward as he was having to defend so much. However he was able to play some passes and, when he was defending, cut out some passes that would have caused some problems for the Tigers' backline. (6)

Sam Clucas: Had the task of marking the most expensive man ever but didn't allow Paul Pogba to dictate the game as he would have liked. He made sure he didn't leave his backline stranded and was able to shield them well. (7)

Robert Snodgrass: Suffered an injury when colliding with the goal post and didn't really recover. It was an unfortunate injury for himself and for Hull and the score could have been different had he stayed on. (4)

Adama Diomande: He was full of energy and was able to help out Robertson as well as being able to surge forward a create a few problems. Unfortunately, there was no end product on any of these runs. (7)

Abel Hernandez: Has been a very isolated figure throughout the start of this season and that didn't change on Saturday. When he did have the ball at his feet, he couldn't produce anything meaningful. (5)


Shaun Maloney: Wasn't able to attack as United's pressure was too much. Maloney spent much of his time on the pitch as a holding midfielder, covering the runners who managed to get through the Tigers' midfield. (5)

Harry Maguire: Came on for Hernandez in the 83rd minute as an extra defender. Didn't play long enough to get a rating but is a good sign for Hull fans as, after the International break, Maguire should be able to slot back into the Tigers' defence. (N/a)
