I thought once he moved to the wing, Martial looked a different player. Might not have scored but played a part in setting up goals/attacks.

The first half was a borefest, the second half was a joy to watch.

A really good night for us all round. Tomorrow is an opportunity we need to take.

Another first half with no cutting edge in the last third. Usually we do better in the second half, so here's hoping.

Pretty awful so far to be honest...and could Pogba be the most over-hyped and overrated player we've ever had? There probably has been worse to be honest but he really does look perplexingly useless a lot of the time!

Pogba is very up and down. "One for the future" I suppose, but he makes some odd choices sometimes.

I feel that Martial will be moving on in the summer. He should be nailed on for this fixture with its slow tempo, but Rooney comes on instead.

Let's be honest, Hull are bottom for a reason...they're not very good...and they've been **** poor tonight! If we can't beat them at OT ...well, I just give up!!

Two games against Hull and they have deserved it both times. We look knackered!

edit: Shoddy. But a fair result. I can't remember us ever really looking like scoring.

Bloody useless, overpaid idiots. Never looked like scoring, missed sitters, pitiful display. Why we didn't buy ANYTHING in this last transfer window, I just don't know, anything would have been better than this lot of way overpaid idiots. Everytime the teams above us slip up, we have an easy game & we also slip up. Fourth place is getting even further away. The Swede was bloody useless, Rashford no better, how we missed Hernandez.

Why is it they always do? It is because we make useless goalkeepers seem good.

I agree. Hernandez (who, if I remember correctly, used to play for free) would have done a far better job not scoring tonight.

Hmm, that's usually said when the goal has been constantly peppered with goal bound shots...in this instance it's way overgenerous to us... ...Hull are crap and so it seems are we!
