Chelsea 

Andre Schurrle

Nearly scored on his debut with a chip that sailed just over after a thrilling run past Maynor Figueroa. 6/10

Marco van Ginkel

Only had five minutes on the pitch but looked very comfortable in midfield. N/A

Hull City

Allan McGregor

A strange mix of good and bad: clumsily giving away a penalty, which he then saved well. 6

Maynor Figueroa

Pinned back by Kevin De Bruyne, so he could not make any of his trademark runs. 5

Curtis Davies

Could not be blamed for Hull’s problems and looked quick across the ground and composed in the air. 6

Danny Graham

Relies on service but Hull did just not see enough of the ball to feed him. 4

Yannick Sagbo

Recovered well from a painful 50-50 tackle in the first half with Ramires but did not make much impact. 5

Tom Huddlestone

Improved Hull’s tempo with his precise passing. 7

Jake Livermore

Came on alongside his former Spurs team-mate Huddlestone, and screened the defence well as Hull regained a foothold in the game. 6
