Player Ratings vs Hull City

Defoe Lennon Keane - Header

Gomes  – Not on long enough to rate properly but punching like that ain’t good.

Cudicini (7) – Perhaps could’ve done better with the goal but he was probably expecting one of the two free Hull forwards in the six yard box to get a nut on the ball rather than be so incompetent as to miss it completely. Handled well from then on and made a good save from Geovanni’s header.

Hutton (7) –
Definitely added something going forward down the right but not totally convincing at the back against Steve Hunt. Good and timely challenge on him to prevent an equaliser having said that.

Assou-Ekotto (7) – Seemed to be playing within himself most of the time. Joined in the fun going forward when we were on top, gave away free kicks when we weren’t.

Corluka (6) – Started very nervously. Recovered to a degree but never seemed totally comfortable.

Bassong (6) – Given a hard time by Folan and Geovanni and came off second best too often during the period after Hull’s goal. Corluka’s tentativeness probably didn’t help him.

Huddlestone (7) – Looked good again, providing an outlet for the back four and passing quickly and generally accurately. Beautiful ball for first goal. Took a terrible free kick from a good position. Why doesn’t he just smack it? I’d hate to be in a wall and see him running up to thump it.

Modric (8) –
Far more involved than Sunday. Over ambitious in his passing sometimes but mostly completely class. One superb dribble in the second half and two good long range shots that went close.

Palacios (8) – The sort of performance we’ve come to expect. His work rate seems to inspire the others. Nicely taken goal (take that Zokora!) and two games without a booking!

Lennon (8) – Much better than Sunday I thought. Found space well, attacked the full back more often and crossed well a few times. Got the assists for the final two goals.

Keane (8) – Worked his socks off in ‘the hole’. Hull couldn’t cope with him coming back to link up play. Beautiful glancing header for a welcome goal.

Defoe (9) – Lovely hat-trick but could’ve had more which is why he doesn’t get ten. Harsh I know.
