Man Utd 4-3 Hull

Nov 2, 2008

Manchester United survived a late rally by Hull to move up to third place in the Premier League.

Cristiano Ronaldo opened the scoring with a low strike before Daniel Cousin headed Hull level at the near post.

Michael Carrick struck from 20 yards, Ronaldo headed in a corner and Nemanja Vidic volleyed home as United led 4-1.

But Bernard Mendy lobbed Edwin van der Sar, and when Mendy was fouled by Rio Ferdinand, Geovanni converted the penalty to set up a grandstand finish.

Hull started the match two points ahead of their opponents and defending an unbeaten away record in the Premier League but Phil Brown’s team were outclassed by their illustrious and expensively assembled opponents for most of the game.
