Full-time: Hull 0-1 Manchester United

  • Substitute Marcus Rashford caps off an impressive late cameo with a 92nd-minute winner at the KCOM Stadium that maintains United's 100% start under Jose Mourinho and condemns depleted Hull to their first defeat of the season
  • The 18-year-old, making his first Premier League appearance of the season, fired home from close range after excellent work from Wayne Rooney
  • United monopolised possession for the most part but struggled to turn their dominance into chances before the introduction of Rashford and Henrikh Mkhitaryan added an extra dimension to their attack
  • Mike Phelan's side defended valiantly for the most part but lacked a consistent threat going forward
  • Robert Snodgrass went off injured in the early stages of the second half after failing to shake off a leg injury

Hull 0-1 Manchester United


Immediately after providing that assist, Rooney goes off to be replaced by Chris Smalling. Mourinho looking to ensure that United hold this lead in the dying moments.


Absolute heartbreak for Hull as United snatch what will surely be the winning goal at the death. Rooney gets to the byline and beats Elmohamady all ends up before looking up and laying the ball on a plate for Rashford to tap home from close range.

Jubilant celebrations from players and fans alike. The visitors' perseverance has paid off at last.

Goal: Hull 0-1 Manchester United (Marcus Rashford)


Pogba blazes over again and Hull respond by creating a late chance of their own. Diomande gets the better of Shaw and feeds, Meyler who shoots over. Phelan applauds another superb effort from his depleted side.


Four minutes of added time signalled by the fourth official. Can United find that elusive winner, or will Hull remain solid until the full-time whistle?


Pogba sells Maloney a clever feint before collecting Shaw's horizontal pass and bending a shot wide of the post. Still no way through for United.


Ibrahimovic is caught on his heels as a wonderful cross from Rashford skids across the six-yard box before going safe. This has been a fine late showing from the youngster and Mourinho must surely be impressed.



A dangerous ball in from Pogba takes a couple of ricochets and almost leads to an own goal. Jakupovic then shows quick reflexes to keep out a Meyler deflection and Davies makes a superb block to deny Mkhitaryan.

It's very much backs to the wall now for Hull as Phelan sends on Maguire in place of Hernandez.


Rashford sets off on a damaging run, beating Clucas before sending a low shot through the legs of Jake Livermore that Jakupovic does well to tip wide.


Another confident effort from Huddlestone after tricky work from Maloney. This time his half-volley from distance flies over the crossbar.

Rooney is booked for showing dissent towards referee Moss and Meyler picks up a yellow card of his own for knocking over Mkhitaryan. Pogba also fires a free-kick wide.


Hull have offered preciously little in terms of an attacking threat since the break, but go close when Huddlestone's powerful strike takes a huge deflection off Bailly. With De Gea wrong-footed, the ball trickles wide.


Meyler looks fortunate not to have conceded a penalty after blocking Valencia's cross with his arm. Rooney then volleys into the side netting after a half-hearted clearance from Elmohamady.


Tom Huddlestone enters the referee's notebook for bringing down Mkhitaryan after the Armenian had glided past Clucas and Meyler.

United's second change sees Rashford, named in England's U21 squad this week for their upcoming 2017 European Championship qualifier against Norway, replace Mata. This is the academy graduate's first Premier League cameo under Mourinho.


Mata combines nicely with the speedy Mkhitaryan, but still United cannot find a way beyond Davies. He has been immense so far tonight.

Hull need an out ball here, otherwise the last 20 or so minutes are going to seem like a lifetime. Hernandez is an isolated figure.


Under zero pressure, Pogba unleashes a powerful drive from quite a distance that fails to test Jakupovic. He certainly doesn't lack confidence in his own abilities.

Ibrahimovic's latest attempt is deflected narrowly wide and a disappointing Rooney corner is headed away by first man Elmohamady.

Pogba then sends the ball back through for Zlatan, whose outrageous flick looks to set Mata free. He is stopped by the offside flag.


Martial receives possession from Rooney and proceeds to cut inside before dragging a long-range shot wide of Jakupovic's right-hand post.

That is to be the underwhelming French forward's final contribution as he makes way for Mkhitaryan.

60 minutes gone and still goalless.


The linesman signals for a clear foul from Diomande on Valencia, but Moss waves away his flag. Jakupovic then does well to claim a cross before it can reach Ibrahimovic.

Mkhitaryan will enter the fray shortly.


Rooney heads Shaw's deflected cross towards goal. Jakupovic saves and Davies goes down after sustaining a knock to the head while trying to deny the United captain.

Sam Clucas also sees stars after running straight into Ibrahimovic.


Maloney replaces Snodgrass in only the second substitution made by Phelan in the Premier League so far this season.


Snodgrass lasts less than a minute before going down once again nursing that injured right leg. His evening looks to be over.

Hull have temporarily been reduced to 10 men while Maloney prepares to come on.
