Despite Tottenham's control of possession, they needed their goalkeeper to be alert to make sharp saves to deny Sagbo and Boyd.
Solid enough defensive display from the Spurs captain as he dealt with Sagbo and won virtually every header.
The Romanian appeared uneasy defensively at times but was very impressive on the ball when he stepped into midfield.
Again played out of position at left-back. Did his job for the team, gave the side balance and forced the penalty late on.
The winger made his first league start since the opening game of the season after still looked off the pace. Played on both the left and the right but didn't use his speed to take on Hull defenders.
Very assured with his passing but tended to drop deep to get involved in the game, damaging the teams shape and meaning he was often in areas where he couldn't hurt the Hull defence.
The Brazilian looked off the pace before he was substituted at half-time. Ponderous on the ball and some clumsy challenges, one of which resulted in a yellow card.
Full of energy in a box-to-box role but missed a great chance to open the scoring when he hooked a volley over the bar in the first half.
Again looked the man most likely to make something happen for the hosts with his eagerness to take on Hull defenders. Tested Harper from long-range in the first half and set up a good chance for Soldado after the break.
A frustrating afternoon for the Spanish striker as he fed off scraps for most of the game - until he stepped up to score from the penalty spot 10 minutes from time. Until then, had struggled to get away from the Hull defenders and was restricted to just one real sight on goal.
The veteran answered any questions about his sharpness with some excellent diving saves to deny Spurs players including Townsend and Soldado.
Might have been picked out as the weak link in Hull's five-man defence. Lack of pace exposed a couple of times but on the whole made up for it with his anticipation.
The Hull captain led by example. Physically strong up against Soldado and absolutely committed to every challenge.
Allowed Townsend to cut inside too easily at times in the first half but handled Lennon better after the break.
Excellent performance in the middle of Hull's three-man defence. Always alert to read danger and deny Spurs star-studded attack chances to score.
Booked for petulantly kicking the ball away in the first half but was strong in one-on-one situations against Lennon.
The tall, rangy central midfielder helped to provide an excellent screen for the back four while his passing was neat and tidy.
Received a warm ovation on his return to his old club and the midfielder produced a classy display. Crisp passing and set-piece delivery - and he fired a volley just over the crossbar himself.

Worked tirelessly up and down the right flank and will feel very hard done by for the handball from which Spurs were awarded their penalty. Offered little threat in an attacking sense.
Rarely involved but looked dangerous when he drifted inside and got on the ball. Denied a goal just before half-time by a smothering save by Lloris.
Did the best he could in the tough role as Hull's lone frontman. Hassled the Spurs defence and kept making runs off the ball. Powerful first-half shot from a tight angle forced Lloris into action.
