Here are The Football Lab’s Player Ratings for Hull’s 2-2 draw with Everton.

Hull City

David Marshall – made a hash of the corner just before the interval. A good save early in the second half but did not cover himself in glory. 3

Ahmed Elmohamady – could have defended his flank better for Everton’s second goal. Didn’t offer enough width. 3
Harry Maguire – made some good interceptions and his marauding runs drove the team forward. 8
Michael Dawson – scored the opener and made some good blocks in the second half. 7
Curtis Davies – flicked the ball on for Dawson’s goal and did ok in the air. 6
Andrew Robertson – worked hard enough but too many defensive errors in his game. 4

Jake Livermore – started strongly but waned in influence in the first half. Put himself about after the break. 7
David Meyler – battled well in midfield before being surprisingly taken off. 6
Adama Diomande – anonymous throughout. Difficult to see what he offers. 2

Robert Snodgrass – Hull’s most creative player. Free-kick hit the bar and his corner led to the goal. Didn’t close down Baines for Everton’s late equalizer. 7
Dieumerci Mbokani – lacked the pace to run in behind and was always in an offside position. 3

Sam Clucas (on 56) – did not provide the attacking energy upon which he bases his game. 4
Tom Huddlestone (on 85)

Everton

Joel Robles – conceded twice despite only facing four shots on target. Could have done better with Snodgrass’ free-kick. 2

Seamus Coleman – given the frequency with which he gets forward, he needs more pace to attack the byline. Hit the bar in the first half. 4
Phil Jagielka – his marking on corners could have been better. Arguably shouldn’t have come straight back into the team ahead of Funes Mori. 3
Ashley Williams – could have been quicker to the ball, but was not drawn out too much in open play. 5
Leighton Baines – some good passes, put the cross in for Barkley’s goal and was rarely tested defensively by Elmohamady. Lacked the pace of his former self. 6

Idrissa Gueye – his ball-winning qualities were rendered irrelevant when Everton dominated possession. Started the second half well but has had better games. 5
Gareth Barry – looked vulnerable when Hull pushed forward early on. When given more time on the ball, he slowed play down. 3

Enner Valencia – did not show enough quality on the ball. Often forced inside. 4
Ross Barkley – scored the late equalizer and was at the centre of Everton’s best attacking moves, particularly at the start of the second half. 8
Kevin Mirallas – one of the better players in the first half. Looked bright and always tried to take players on. 7

Romelu Lukaku – looked disinterested. Did not make enough off-the-ball runs, or chase the centre-backs. 3

Tom Davies (on 66) – forced play in Everton’s direction with his raw energy. Could be the man to revitalize an aging squad. 9
Dominic Calvert-Lewin (on 74) – offered more in 16 minutes than Valencia had in 74. Stretched play well and could have won it with his header late on. 8
Ramiro Funes Mori (on 87)
