Manchester United squeezed past a good Hull side and into the EFL final, with one man standing out in a generally poor performance for the Red Devils.
David Marshall – 7
One great save in the first half from Ibrahimovic but no chance on the equaliser.
David Meyler – 6
Struggled defensively in unfamiliar full back role but gave it his all and laid a goal on a plate.
Michael Dawson – 6
Missed a big chance in the first half but was rarely stretched.
Harry Maguire – 6
‘Won’ the penalty, if that’s the right word, and has a very likeable buccaneering quality to him.
Josh Tymon – 6
Showed some nice touches on a challenging night for the youngster.
Tom Huddlestone – 7
Coolly converted the penalty and was an influence in the centre. A little unfortunate for Pogba’s goal.
Samuel Clucas – 6
Not great, but didn’t struggle either.
Jarrod Bowen – 6
The youngster did ok and justified the faith in him shown by his manager, but you wouldn’t say he stood out at all.
Shaun Maloney – 6
A rare chance to impress for the Tigers but and neither harmed nor furthered his cause for more minutes.
Adama Diomande – 6
He was physical, but that’s about all you could say.
Oumar Niasse – 7
Kept going all night and got his reward. Unfortunate not to score another.
Lazar Markovic (Substitute) – 5
Struggled to get involved but surely more to come from the on-loan Liverpool man.
Evandro (Substitute) – 6
One lovely piece of delivery from a corner that so nearly yielded reward.
Abel Hernandez (Substitute) – 5
Game passed him by a little.
David De Gea – 6
Steady, though heroics weren’t really required.
Matteo Darmian – 5
Not much dynamism from the Italian.
Chris Smalling – 6
Could have been more influential in both boxes, but ultimately it was an average contribution.
Phil Jones – 6
He battled and, for all Hull’s first half dominance, they didn’t get many chances.
Marcos Rojo – 4
Gave away a stupid penalty that could have led to disaster on the night. Also gave away too many cheap free-kicks that invited pressure. Just not impressing, despite rattling the Hull bar with a header.
Ander Herrera – 5
Looked a little flustered and frustrated at times. Perhaps just not his night.
Michael Carrick – 7
A calm and consistent presence at the heart of the side.
Paul Pogba – 7
Came up big when his side needed him, which is, I suppose, what big players do. In general, though, you just wonder if he’s dominating enough.
Jesse Lingard – 5
Just wasn’t his night.
Zlatan Ibrahimovic – 8
The one outstanding United player. Was genuinely influential at the apex of the side.
Marcus Rashford – 6
Very little came off for him but he was still a real threat. Nice knack to have, that.
Wayne Rooney (Substitute) – 5
Brought on to offer some experience and stability to the side but didn’t seem to contribute anything of note.
Marouane Fellaini (Substitute) – 5
Just a token time-wasting substitution, really.
