Our Phil Hay hands out the scores in LS11 - do you agree with our ratings?

Caught off his line for the first goal but the error in that moment was down to Phillips. Did his best to stop Hulls second with an initial, point-blank save. 6/10
Constantly available on the right-hand side and will offer more again when he gets back to full fitness but Grosicki and Bowen worked Bielsas full-backs hard. 6/10
More decent defending from him, on a day when no-one except Hernandez looked close to full tilt. 6/10
Ought to have hoofed the ball upfield before Bowen nipped into score his first of the afternoon. Is this position getting the best out of him? 5/10
The overlapping wasnt there and nor was any threat from Douglas. Left standing and beaten too easily when Grosicki went by him to set up the second goal. 4/10
Not his day. Gave possession away in dangerous positions and didnt manage to get the measure of Hull's attack. Leeds were at risk from counters. 5/10
Sprightly to begin with and did good work defensively but Hull's potency out wide was markedly better than Leeds' until Clarke came on. 6/10
Appears to have lost his conviction in front of goal and too much of what he tried failed to come off. In a minor rut. 5/10
The one player who promised to salvage the afternoon. Mixed up play nicely in the first half and the good things Leeds did went through him. 7/10
His effort isnt in question and he was slightly more involved but another half-time substitution begs the question of what this loan is doing for him or Leeds. 5/10
Visibly frustrated before half-time and hardly saw the ball. Hull's defending was very tight and disciplined and Roofe suffered because of it. 4/10
Does what United's other wingers dont by repeatedly going past his man. Caused problems again. 7/10
Attacked the space in front of him and added something to the display. Unlucky not to score. 6/10
A positive attitude and full of running, both of which Leeds needed, but the game slipped away. 5/10
Even Bielsa was struggling to bite his tongue. Not great, but the issues for Leeds went further than him. 5/10
