Made a fine save to deny Figueroa before half-time but could do nothing about the equaliser, with the intervention of Nikica Jelavic leaving him wrong-footed.
Saw a lot of the ball as West Ham attacked down the left and provided a number of dangerous crosses. His attacking prowess was not matched by his defensive ability, however, with Elmohamady repeatedly getting beyond him.
Withdrawn within the first 10 minutes due to injury and was replaced by Johnson.
Limited the threat of Meyler and looked to feed Downing whenever possible, before providing the cross for Chester's ridiculous own goal.
Tasked with marking Jelavic and did so well, with the Hull striker forced to feed off scraps until his diversion took Huddlestone's free-kick into the bottom corner.
Clashed with Huddlestone early on and continued to put his body on the line for the West Ham cause in a typically committed display.
Deployed on the left flank and broke through to win the penalty from McGregor, despite handling the ball in the build-up. Later tucked in as West Ham protected a slender lead and used his strength well before being replaced by Cole.
Created two clear-cut chances early on but was denied first by McGregor and then by the Hull defence. Worked hard for the rest of the game but was repeatedly left craning his neck to see the long balls forward.
Gave his side the lead from the spot with the calmest penalty you are ever likely to see and ran himself into the ground, as he repeatedly nipped at the heels of his midfield counterparts.
Repeatedly left Figueroa trailing in his wake but struggled to provide any truly dangerous crosses from the right.
Headed over from 10 yards in the first half but occupied defenders well and often dropped deep in search of the ball. A quiet display from the World Cup hopeful.
Sent off for a clumsy foul on Diame but will feel aggrieved, as the midfielder handled the ball in the build-up to the tackle. Nevertheless, the challenge was reckless and arguably cost his side the chance to take all three points.
Up against Downing on the right wing and was consistently outpaced by the West Ham star. Did test Adrian with a rasping drive but was replaced by Rosenior when he fell victim to injury.
The sacrificial lamb following McGregor's sending off, with Harper his replacement.
Intelligent in possession and made a number of key tackles, but scored a calamitous own goal to give West Ham a 2-1 lead.
Much like his defensive partner, he linked the play well and looked to start attacks whenever possible. Had his hands full with the physical presence of Carroll but performed well against the big man.
Ahmed El Mohamady
Provided a constant outlet down the left flank and dealt well with the threats of Diame and McCartney.
Saw his impressive range of passing snuffed out by the vigilant Hammers midfield but took the free-kick which led to Hull's equaliser. His shot was on target but the nick off Jelavic took it beyond Adrian.
Looked to link attacks and run at the West Ham defence whenever possible. Booked for ugly challenge on Noble in the first half, and later faded.
Toiled for the cause but struggled to get beyond Demel in the first half. Later switched flanks but saw no improvement.
Struggled to get beyond the West Ham defence but managed to touch Huddlestone's free-kick past Adrian for the equaliser, before being replaced by Sagbo in the dying stages.
Always willing to chase the long ball but the service to him was poor and he saw his threat limited as a result.
Replaced McGregor and immediately picked the ball out of the net, with Noble scoring from the spot. Could do nothing about the second goal, either, with Chester's sliced clearance taking him by surprise.
Replaced the injured Figueroa and was thrust into the thick of the action - with Carroll often drifting wide to test his strength - but coped well as the clock ticked down.
