Everton v Hull – Player Ratings

Eldin Jakupovic – 7 – Produced an excellent save but was completely helpless for the goals. Still deserves to be starting each games as he has produced nothing but the best that can be expected from him.

Andrea Ranocchia – 7 –  A good performance to keep Lukaku at bay for so long, but later in the game looked tired and lost his player a few times. Did look threatening going forward. A player Hull should considering making an offer for when his loan comes to an end.

Harry Maguire (MOTM) – 9 –  Another excellent performance from Maguire. Produced some excellent tackles and will leave Gareth Southgate with few excuses for not giving him a call-up to the national team. Very much deserved his chance with the captains armband and gave many reasons to keep hold of it for the next game.

Curtis Davies – 6 – It was clear that Davies still isn’t back up to full fitness, but was called upon to help stop the onslaught of Everton’s on-form strikers. Looks likely to be on the bench for West Ham as the weakest of the three centre-backs.

Omar Elabdellaoui – 5 – a terrible pass gifted Lukaku one of his goals when the game was already over. Produced a great cross for Robertson, but not a performance to write home about. Still Hull’s best option at right-back.

Andy Robertson – 6 – Cannot be faulted for his performance in a congested defence. Showed some good pace running forward but will wish he did better from Elabdellaoui’s cross. Definitely performs better with a back 4.

Tom Huddlestone – 6 – A red card that ended the game early for him. Cannot blame him at all for the card which ended Hull’s chances, so hopefully will not be made scapegoat by other media outlets. Hopefully Hull will contest the 3-match ban, and should win.

Alfred N’Diaye – 6 – Looked very average for the entire game. Still looking to settle into the English game so cannot be entirely blamed for the performance of the entire team. Still a good prospect for Hull.

Sam Clucas – 8 – Another good performance by Clucas. His rise through the leagues is fully deserved as he is consistently one of Hull’s best performers. Did everything he could but was unable to get his self-made opportunity to land in the net.

Lazar Markovic – 5 – If there was one word to describe his performance against Everton it would be “greedy”. Wasted several good opportunities when going forward due to his desperation for glory. Frustrating performance again from Markovic, who will likely, and for the sake of Hull’s Premier League survival, spend a bit of time on the bench.

Abel Hernandez – 4 – Given a low rating but not of his own fault. Has never thrived as a lone-striker and Marco Silva still hasn’t learned it. Will show a much better performance when Niasse returns to the squad.


Kamil Grosicki – 6 – Gave his all as ever, but his passing needs a lot more work.

Adama Diomande – 4 – At 2-0 down, was subbed on in place of Hernandez, a like for like swap made no sense with nothing to lose. Could have replaced a number of players and made more of a difference.

Ahmed Elmohamady – 4 – Could do little to prevent the scoreline going from bad to worse. Should have replaced Markovic at least 20 minutes earlier to give him time to influence the game.

Manager Rating: 5

A terrible game for Marco Silva, not entirely of his own doing. Still giving Markovic plenty of chances but being let done every time. Needs to look at his youth setup for players with more desire, as a few players seemed disinterested in taking the game to Everton.
