After the eleventh game week in the Premier League, Hull City find themselves sitting in the danger zone. They did head into the international break on a positive note winning 2-1 against Southampton last weekend but Mike Phelan will know that his side needs to come up with a number of similar performances if they have to retain their Premier League status.

Hull City had a turbulent summer just after getting promoted to the Premier League. Steve Bruce left the hot seat following a dispute with the owners and Hull’s preparation for their comeback Premier League season got hindered. Mike Phelan started the season as the Tigers’ interim manager but later was announced as the permanent one. The Tigers made their summer business very late in the last two days of the transfer window and now let us take a look at how have those players fared so far.

Ryan Mason- 6/10

The English midfielder became Hull City’s club record signing as he moved to KC Stadium from Spurs in order to get regular playing time. Mason’s performance so far has been far from impressive. He has played 10 games in all competitions in a Hull jersey and has scored twice but has rarely come up with something inspiring which we expect from a player of his calibre. A medium rating of 6 is fair.

Markus Henriksen- 6/10

Made his move to Hull City on loan from Eredivisie giants AZ Alkmaar. Not anything special but not bad either. He has played just six games in all competitions for the Tigers and has scored one goal. But his passing accuracy of 75.4% is far from what you expect from a creative midfield player.

David Marshall- 6.5/10

Has replaced Eldin Jakupovic as the number one keeper after his switch from Championship side Cardiff City. The Scot has conceded plenty of goals but can be blamed for very few of those. If not or his heroics in some games, things could have been much worse.

Dieumerci Mbokani- 3/10

No one expected anything special from the loanee from Dynamo Kyiv. The former Norwich City striker has not played much for the Tigers this season but he failed to take his chances when he got the chance.

Will Keane- 3/10

Expectations were quite high from the summer signing who moved from Manchester United to Hull this summer. The 23-year-old has been a big letdown so far. Yet to score his first goal for the Tigers, if things do not improve soon, he will be considered as a big flop.
