On the coming matchday, Manchester United will travel to the KC Stadium to take on high-flying Hull City. Both the teams are undefeated in the first two games of the season and would be hoping to continue their winning streak.

Hull City stunned everyone after they defeated defending champions Leicester City, 2-1, during their season-opener. They followed it up with another tremendous display last weekend at the Liberty Stadium with a 2-0 win over Swansea City.

Meanwhile, Manchester United continued their dominating start to the season with a 2-0 victory over Southampton at the Old Trafford last Friday. The game also marked the debut of record signing Paul Pogba. Both Pogba and Ibrahimovic impressed during the game and will look to have a good outing once again.

Team News:

Hull City:
Despite winning the first two games, Hull City still have a lot of issues to resolve. They have only 13 senior players and a caretaker manager in the team apart from injury problems. Greg Luer and Josh Tymon picked up injuries midweek during the EFL game against Exeter City and look all set miss out against United. They are already missing Michael Dawson, Alex Bruce, Allan McGregor, and Moses Odubajo.

Predicted line-up: Eldin Jakupovic, Andrew Robertson, Curtis Davies, Jake Livermore, Ahmed Elmohamady, Samuel Clucas, Tom Huddlestone, Davi Meyler, Adama Diomande, Abel Hernandez, Robert Snodgrass

Manchester United:
Manchester United’s squad is looking stronger than ever and are looking the hot favourites to bag the three points. However, they are expected to miss Jesse Lingard who is back in training this week after getting injured in the game against Bournemouth.

Predicted lineup: David De Gea, Antonio Valencia, Eric Bailly, Chris Smalling, Luke Shaw, Marouane Fellaini, Paul Pogba, Anthony Martial, Wayne Rooney, Henrikh Mkhitaryan, Zlatan Ibrahimovic

Key Stats:

  • Hull have not beaten Manchester United in any competition since November 1974.
  • Zlatan Ibrahimovic can equal a 91-year-old record if he scores at Hull City. Ibrahimovic is the ninth man to score in his opening three United matches and the first to do so since Ian Storey-Moore. However, Jimmy Hanson still holds the record for scoring in four successive matches in 1924-25 and the former Sweden international can match his record.

Betting Odds:

Hull City win: 13/2

Draw:    16/5

Manchester United win: 7/15

Prediction:

Hull City 0-3 Manchester United

    An avid sports lover, i always wanted to pursue a career in football. But just like the millions out there i did not put in the hard work needed to achieve my dream and now i have become a fan instead of the player. Anyway, writing for sports has kept me closer to this field. One more thing, yours sincerely is a die-hard Liverpool fan.
    You will never walk alone.
