Had very little to deal with due to Hull’s struggles in front of goal, but he was nonetheless lucky not to concede in the first half when Diomande’s header hit the post.
Made a couple of important interceptions when battling with Hernandez, whilst he spent the remainder of the game away from the bulk of the action.
Spent the majority of the game camped inside the Hull half of the pitch, where he often got the better of Meyler, which was evident in the build-up to the second goal that saw him pick out Fellaini with a lovely cross.
Was presented with little to do on what was a relatively quiet night for the United defenders, but he remained calm and composed throughout.
Arguably one of United’s most impressive attacking players in the first half, and he continued that good form in the second period and was in the right place at the right time to fire in his side’s first goal of the game.
Was rarely needed defensively, which allowed him to concentrate on pushing forward. Caused Diomande and Robertson several problems, which was evident in his contribution to United’s opening goal.
Was slightly sloppy in the first half, despite seeing plenty of the ball, but the Armenian was far more impressive after the break and set up Mata’s opener with a towering header.
Kept things ticking over in the heart of the United midfield. Was smart with his passing in advanced areas and resolute defensively to frustrate the Hull forward line.
Consistently impressed in the middle of the pitch. Sprayed several lovely passes all over the field and made great driving forward runs.
Drifted in and out of a game in which he was unable to make a significant impact. Was presented with a chance in either half but failed to take either before making way for Martial on the hour mark.
The youngster made a couple of good runs in and around the penalty area and made a nuisance of himself on a few occasions, but he largely failed to shine in his central role and was well dealt with by the Hull centre-backs.
The Swiss goalkeeper was tested less than he would have been expecting. Pulled off several good saves in the first half before twice being beaten from close range.
Was conservative over on the left wing, where he sat deep and concentrated on defending. This he mainly did well, although he should have done more when trying to deal with Fellaini in the build-up to United's second goal.
Arguably one of Hull’s standout performers. Put in a determined defensive performance from start to finish and did well to keep Rashford quiet.
Was deployed in a slightly more advanced midfield role, although he was presented with few chances to break forward. Sometimes failed to track back effectively and was caught out on a few occasions.
Started well and looked bright when drifting out to the right, but he fell awkwardly when battling with Pogba and was forced off with a suspected dislocated shoulder after just 20 minutes.
Performed well in an unfamiliar centre-back role, resulting in him striking up a good partnership with Maguire.
Injuries meant that the Irishman was deployed as a makeshift right-back, and whilst he didn’t perform terribly, he was still beaten far too easily by Darmian on several occasions.
Sat deep and largely defended well in front of the Hull back line, and he looked bright on the rare occasions that he was able to push forward.
Performed well at the base of the midfield in the first half, but he became increasingly sloppy as he began to tire and left pockets of space available.
Was unable to see much of the ball in advanced positions due to United’s dominance of possession, but the midfielder nonetheless got back to defend when needed and impressed with his set-pieces.
Started as a lone striker before moving over to the wing after the introduction of Hernandez. Often struggled with his defensive duties but he did go close to scoring with a bouncing header that left De Gea rooted to the spot.
Caused problems for the Hull defence after coming on to replace Mkhitaryan, resulting in him impressing all over the final third of the pitch.
Came on for Mata late on and wrapped up the win with an important second goal that saw him easily beat Robertson in the air.
Replaced Rooney with half an hour left to play. Impressed over on the left flank and made several good runs against a tiring Hull back line.
Replaced the injured Tymon with only a few minutes left to play and saw very little of the ball during his brief cameo.
Featured for the final quarter of an hour but, bar a wayward shot, was unable to find much joy during his time on the pitch.
Initially looked bright after replacing the injured Henriksen, although his influence on the game waned after the break and he was largely anonymous during the second period.
