Player Ratings: United v Hull City – A Game To Instantly Forget For Everyone

Valdes – Some incredible saves combined with incredibly shoddy aerial defending. Could have cost the side three goals due to his flapping at the ball. 4

Valencia – Able to carry the ball forward but often overhit his cross and was unable to create any real danger. 5

Smalling – Yet another dominant performance to cap a fine season for the Englishman. Always assured and lead by example. 7

Jones – Always a second away from a costly error, he looked a nervous figure on a worrying number of instances. 5

Rojo – Attempted to push up from his unnatural wide position but was unable to make a real contribution. 5

Blind – Failed to dominate the midfield battle and looked out of place far too often. Lost the ball fairly easily when under pressure. 5

Mata – Tidy in possession but unable to provide the cutting edge needed to set up the initial goal against a well organised Hull defence. 5

Herrera – Tried to make things happen for his side but was let down by his teammate. 6

Di Maria – Offered little from the start and subbed off following a picked up knock. 3

Young – Unable to carry on his fantastic form. Subbed around the hour mark. 5

Rooney – Completely isolated up front and did nothing to get himself involved. 5


Januzaj – Predictable with the ball and was let down by his dribbling one too many times. A poor ending to a disappointing season. 4

Fellaini – Shameful two footed lunch resulted in his instant dismissal. Disgusting. 1

Wilson – N/A


Louis van Gaal – The match itself has a preseason feel to it which was understandable given that United had nothing to play for. Still, it was disappointing seeing just how poor the United attack was in breaking up the Hull defence. A fitting game to summarise United’s season as a whole then. With so much work to do for next season, you have to wonder how many of these players will still be at United next season. Hopefully only a few. 5
