Dealt well with balls into the box in his return to the first team. Superb stop from Bolasie's 25-yard drive was the only time he was forced into a save.
Solid as he came back into the team at the expense of Rosenior. Strong in the tackle and happy to play an easy pass to keep possession.
Looked more comfortable in a defensive trio rather than at the heart of a back four. Sloppy in possession at times, but with Campbell targeting others, had a relatively easy afternoon.
Got forward with regularity on the left-hand side and put in a number of teasing crosses, no more so than when picking out Diame for the opening goal. Strong in defense up against the pace of Puncheon in what was an excellent display.
Strong at the heart of the Hull back three after an early foul on Campbell. Outpaced on occasion but otherwise a decent showing.
Picked up a booking in what was otherwise an uneventful showing in the center of midfield. Had little attacking threat to deal with in his defensive role until his fine through ball found Jelavic for the second goal.
Looked to drive the home side forward whenever he found himself in possession before heading in the opening goal for his third strike in a Hull shirt.
Controlled the game in the middle of the park without ever playing the incisive pass that he is very capable of. Only shot on goal was blocked by Dann early.
Ahmed El Mohamady
Swung in a number of crosses from the right as he got the better of Ward in their individual duel. An arm injury picked up late in the first half inhibited him but always a tricky customer.
Headed over the crossbar inside the opening two minutes but got himself into some great positions in the area. Never gave Kelly a moment's peace before sealing the points with a fine run and finish.
Fired narrowly wide on the verge of halftime but struggled to get involved either side of that opportunity. Struggled up against the strength of Delaney.
Had very little to do in the Palace goal as he had no chance with either Hull strike. Possibly could have come off his line more to deal with balls into the box.
Unable to deal with the marauding runs of Elmohamady and struggled when put under pressure while in possession. A rare poor showing from the fullback.
Stretchered off after 10 minutes after making a fine block on the edge of the box to deny Huddlestone.
Largely kept Hernandez under wraps as he made a number of interceptions and challenges inside his own half. Comfortable in possession.
Forced into a central role after Dann's injury early on and struggled up against the movement of Jelavic in and around the box.
Curled an early free kick narrowly over the crossbar but was otherwise involved in a battle with Diame at the heart of the midfield. Struggled at times to track the former West Ham man.
Had some encouraging moments as he looked to get Campbell in behind with his pace, but drifted out of the game far too often. Lost the ball in midfield to allow Jelavic to kill the game.
Saw the game largely pass him by before being replaced by Gayle as the Eagles chased the game late. Never got close to Huddlestone at the heart of the midfield.
Had a quiet afternoon for the most part, though forced Harper into a superb save late on with a long-range shot that was bound for the top corner.
Failed to track Robertson's forward runs and also came second up against the Scot at the other end of the pitch. Wasteful whenever he got a sight of goal.
Pace troubled the Hull back line on his return to Humberside but he was feeding on scraps for much of the afternoon. Booked before being replaced by Chamakh.
Replaced Dann early but struggled on the right-hand side of the defense. Never got to grips with Robertson and gave him far too much space to create Diame's goal.
Brought on for McArthur, and though he added an injection of pace was largely ineffective.
Replaced Campbell once the visitors went behind but failed to test the Hull back line.
