Who was your Tigers man of the match in the FA Cup final?

Allan McGregor - Having overcome kidney damage, the goalkeeper saw Arsenal’s first shot of the day fly past him. Produced a wonderful save to deny Olivier Giroud as the match entered closing stages of stoppage time. 7/10

Ahmed Elmohamady - Playing right wing-back in a 3-5-2 formation, the Egyptian provided a great attacking threat as well as defensive cover. 7

Curtis Davies - City’s captain, like so many times this season, produced a fine display in the heart of defence. Fortunate not to concede a penalty, though. 7

Alex Bruce - A wonderful display from the manager’s son. Only a goal-line clearance stopped him from making it 3-0, before his over-zealous challenge allowed Santi Cazorla to score a free-kick. Caught on knee by Giroud and replaced in the second half. 8

James Chester - A solid performance from the centre-back, who opened the scoring after four minutes and had the City fans in dreamland. 7

Liam Rosenior - Fortunate not to get booked for a challenge on Bacary Sagna but worked hard before limping off. 6

Jake Livermore - The Tottenham loanee broke-up play well and was finding lots of space in the first half. That closed up somewhat as the match wore on. 6

Tom Huddlestone - The former Spurs midfielder got a lot of grief from the Arsenal fans, who were hushed when his shot was turned home in the opening minutes. Lucky not to give a spot-kick away. 7

David Meyler - The Irishman worked tirelessly for the side, although sometimes lack the composure required in order to keep possession. 6

Stephen Quinn - Hit-and-miss display. His wizardry on the left produced the cross from which Davies made it 2-0, yet his sloppiness almost gifted Arsenal a goal. 6

Matty Fryatt - Hull’s top scorer in the competition battled well and should have had a chance one-on-one in the first half only to be called back for a foul. 6

Substitutes:

Paul McShane (Bruce, 66) An enforced change, the Irishman slotted in well and held his own. 6

Sone Aluko (Quinn, 74) His injection of pace and creativity was required by Hull and worked wonders, offering a different attacking outlet. So close to a stoppage-time leveller. 7

George Boyd (Rosenior, 102)
