Hull’s James Chester managed to score in both nets at the KC Stadium to gift Manchester United a 3-2 win.

Chester got Hull off to a flying start after slamming the ball in from close range, after United failed to clear a corner.

It was only a matter of minutes until David Myler made it 2-0 to Hull City, after more dismal defending from the United defence. Jonny Evans failed to clear a cross and after the ball bounced back and forth between United and Hull players, it eventually landed at the feet of David Myler whose shot flicked off Evans and went past De Gea, who stood no chance.

What looked like a nightmare start for David Moyes’s side quickly changed thanks to Chris Smalling, who rose up and headed the ball past the Hull keeper. With the momentum now with the visitors it was not long until a moment of individual brilliance took things level. Wayne Rooney set himself up on the edge of the area and blasted a volley into the top left hand corner, a stunning effort that will challenge for goal of the month.

Hull started strongly in the second half and on 62 minutes Alex Bruce hit the United crossbar with a strong header off a corner. The pressure was relieved though when Hull’s hero earlier in the match headed into his own goal after pressure from Wayne Rooney.

In the dying minutes Hull pushed hard, with Danny Graham missing a close range header. When De Gea missed a punch from a cross, he found himself in No Mans Land yet Hull failed to scoop the ball into the net.

Antonio Valencia finished the game in the dressing room after being shown a red card for dissent.
