Player Ratings: Hull 2-3 United

David De Gea- A mixed day, the second goal was soft and he might think he could have done better. Gave us a heart stopping moment when he came for a cross and flapped around, made 2 vital saves from Graham and Chester late on. 6

Rafael- No real impact before coming off injured early. 5

Jonny Evans- Had a nightmare early on. He was all over the place for the second goal, with a dreadful clearance and softly deflecting a weak shot past De Gea. Improved as the game went on. 6

Chris Smalling- Got us back in the game with a towering header and for the large part looked solid. 7

Patrice Evra- Out-jumped for the first goal and was poor defensively again. He looks like he isn’t keen on the defensive work these days. You can see why Moyes is so keen on signing a left-back. 5

Antonio Valencia- Gave away needless fouls all day, looked dangerous in the first-half but was pinned back in the second. Inexplicable red card for kicking the ball away which almost cost us. 5

Tom Cleverley- Looked calm and composed in midfield and kept us ticking over with his passing range. His good form continued. 7

Darren Fletcher- A surprise starter, it was good to get an hour out of him. Similar to Cleverley in terms of keeping possession and was a cool head in midfield. If he can stay fit, his experience and nous will be vital in the run-in. 7

Ashley Young- His United renaissance continued at Hull. His crossing was threatening all day, notably forcing Chester to score the decisive own goal. Looks like his confidence is returning. 8

Danny Welbeck- Put in another great shift today. His combinations with Rooney are showing great promise. His hold-up play was good and his pace and work-rate were threatening. 7

Wayne Rooney- Continued to play a bit deeper and we reaped the rewards from that. He was at the heart of everything threatening from us. His equalising volley was spectacular and his 150th league goal for United, showed endeavour all day and put pressure on Chester which resulted in the winning goal. 8 MOTM

Substitutes-

Adnan Januzaj- Mixed day for the youngster. His introduction changed the game and gave us a new dimension offensively. However, the crowd were baying for blood, claiming he dived with virtually every tackle, it maybe threw the youngster off his game and was less effective in the second half. 6

Chicharito- His hold-up play was very poor today, the ball bounced off him, annoyed Welbeck when he should have played him through on goal. Not his best performance. 5

Michael Carrick- His return comes with massive relief. He was a steadying influence as ever, carrying on from Fletcher’s good work in midfield. 7
