Pulled off a fine save in the first-half but had little else to do despite Villa's shot tally reaching double-figures. Will be satisfied with his afternoon's work nonetheless.
Continues to excel in a Hull jersey since his summer move, adding composure and solidity to the Tigers rearguard. Read the game expertly throughout. The only blot on his copybook was a moment's hesitation which led to a booking.
As per usual, will be remembered for his attacking prowess rather than his defensive capabilities in the game and offered a substantial threat down the left all afternoon but lackadaisical at the other end. But, did make a vital block in the latter stages to ensure the shares were spoiled.
Struggled to cope with the power and pace of Agbonlahor from the outset and was pinned back as a result - offering very little going forward. Booked for a rash challenge in the first-half.
Provides a towering and imposing figure at the heart of the defence but can often be found wanting through a lack of concentration. Nonetheless, another solid performance by the centre-back which included some vital blocks and interceptions.
Very impressive and influential performance from the diminutive play-maker who was the standout player for the hosts. Found pockets of space at regular intervals and looked to pull the strings from the number 10 position.
Largely subdued performance from the midfield powerhouse with most of his work coming defensively. However, grew in stature as the game wore on and had more of an impact in the latter stages with some trademark passing and energetic bursts.
Fairly ineffectual game for the highly-rated England under-21 international. Failed to make an impact and make his presence felt in the heavily congested midfield areas.
Handed a starting berth in the absence of Robbie Brady and often looked off the pace as he adapts to life in the top-flight. His wand of a left-foot provided some dangerous deliveries but the hosts failed to take advantage.
Ahmed El Mohamady
The majority of Hull's attacks came down the right through the Egyptian winger, and while his final product could have been called into question, it was a tireless performance from a player who has come on leaps and bounds.
The striker's wait for a goal continues after another quiet and ineffectual display by the former Swansea hit-man. Ran his socks off for the cause but ultimately lacking in confidence to make a positive impact.
Another commanding performance by the American shot stopper who was largely untested apart from a couple of comfortable long range shots and aimless crosses.
Extremely easy on the eye to watch and is very comfortable in possession as well as under the high ball. However, often drifted out of position but otherwise a solid performance.
The left-back has been a revelation since his summer arrival from Spain and is just as comfortable going forward as he is defensively.
His presence at the back is one of the reasons for Villa's recent fine form. Consistently organising and barking out orders as well as thwarting the danger himself. Gave Graham little time or space to operate.
Excelled in the middle in the early stages of the season and continued to impress here today. He was sharp on the ball and his close control helped him get out of some tight situations. Ever-present in the tackle too.
Returned to the side after missing the win over City through injury and took a while to get into the game but did his job as part of the midfield three well. Replaced on 75 minutes after running out of fuel.
K. El Ahmadi
Dominated the early exchanges with some lung-busting runs and crisp passing but tired as the game wore on and dropped deeper. However, found a new lease of life in the last quarter and had a couple of efforts on goal.
Domineering display from the right-back, who ensured Quinn or indeed Figueroa were relatively ineffectual for the hosts. Made some telling clearances and blocks, most notably in the early exchanges from a dangerous cross.
The giant Czech Republic front-man was given the nod up top again but did little to merit his inclusion with an unproductive game as proceedings simply passed him by. Failed to hold up anything thrown up to him.
Drifted in and out of the game after a bright start. Has undoubted amounts of talent but his decision making and final ball often let him down, which was the case at the KC Stadium.
A constant and potent threat whether he drifted out wide or stormed through the central areas. His power and pace caused problems all afternoon and went close on a couple of occasions before being subbed with fifteen remaining.
Brought on late on to shore up the midfield areas. Used possession well and made some good tackles.
Introduced in search of a winner but ultimately offered nothing more than Graham in attack.
Had little impact after being introduced in the second-half apart from a late foray into the box which could have resulted in a soft penalty but the referee quickly waved away his optimistic appeals.
