Manchester United vs Hull City
English Premier League
Date: Wednesday, 1st February 2017
Kick-Off at 20:00 UK / 21:00 CET
Venue: Old Trafford.
Hull City defeated Manchester United 2-1 when the teams met for the League Cup semifinal second leg a week ago. This put an end to the United’s 17 match unbeaten run in all competitions.
But, the Red Devils are still have 13 match unbeaten record to protect in the English Premier League. Jose Mourinho’s men are coming in good spirits after winning 4-0 against Wigan Atletic in the FA Cup fixture on the weekend.
Manchester United have an excellent record at Old Trafford this season. Their only loss at home in 20 matches this season came against arch rivals Manchester City on September 2016.
Hull are an improved side since Marco Silva took over in January as they have won in 3 of the 6 matches since then. The Tigers are still 3-points adrift of the relegation zone. Also, their away record in the league is a poor one and are coming on the back of 9 straight away defeats.
Manchester United vs Hull City: Head-to-head stats
Hull City have a poor overall record against Manchester United. Since 2008, the teams had met 11 time and Manchester United have won in 9 of those.
The League Cup win at home a week ago is Hull City’s first win over United since 1974, breaking an unbeaten run that lasted for 13 matches in all competitions.
The Red Devils have won in the last 7 home matches against Hull and 6 of them have come by 2 or more margins.
Manchester United vs Hull City: Prediction
This will be a very different battle than the one we witnessed in the League Cup semi final last week. Manchester United are on top of their game at home, while Hull City hardly do well in away games. On the basis of h2h record, it will be a good option to back United to win by a 2 goal margin. We believe an exact full-time score of 2-0 is the most probable outcome of this match.
