A Mark Noble penalty gave Slaven Bilic's side the three points in the Premier League clash at the London Stadium but Hull hit the woodwork on no less than three occasions from Andrew Robertson (twice) and Dieumerci Mbokani.

"With 57 per cent of the vote congratulations to The Post on securing today's Man of the Match award!," tweeted West Ham after the results of their supporters' poll.

The goalpost beat Cheikhou Kouyate (17 percent), Andy Carroll (14) and Winston Reid (12) in the vote.
