James Chester scored a goal and then had to hold his breath as he conceded a penalty that Charlie Austin ultimately missed giving Hull a 1-0 win.

With Robert Snodgrass, Tom Ince and Andrew Robertson getting their debuts it was veteran James Chester who was integral in the match's two biggest plays. He scored the winning goal and conceded Austin's ill-fated penalty. It may have been a bit lucky but it was a good start for Steve Bruce's team just days after losing Shane Long.

Hull City were fighting uphill after Allan McGregor was sent off in the first half for taking down Mohamed Diame in the box. Mark Noble scored the ensuing penalty but Hull City equalized when Tom Huddlestone's free kick was directed home by Jelavic. The respite for Hull was short lived as Chester's miscue came a mere five minutes later.

Hull City started in fantastic fashion against defending champions Manchester United, going ahead 2-0 in the first 13 minutes but the Red Devils eventually fought back and overtook the Tigers after a James Chester own goal.

It was the best of times, it was the worst of times for Chester. He got the KC stadium crowd rocking when he fired home a volley that came off a corner kick in the 4th minute, and once David Meyler put the Tigers ahead 2-0 after a terrible clearance job from Johnny Evans, the upset looked to be in the works. Unfortunately for their supporters, United found their scoring shoes and brought the game level by the 26th minute. Then, in the second half, Chester headed an Ashley Young cross into the wrong net past Steve Harper, who came on after Allan McGregor left with a knock at halftime. Chester had a chance for redemption late into injury time, but a close range effort was thwarted by David DeGea.
