Premier League: Hull City vs Manchester United preview

Two of the Premier League's unbeaten teams will face each other on Saturday at the KCOM Stadium when surprise package Hull City host Jose Mourinho's Manchester United. The Tigers stunned their opponents in both matches so far, picking up six points out of six, while the Red Devils seem to be enjoying their start under the new boss. Hull have not won against Manchester United in their last 11 meetings in all competitions, losing 10 of those matches. The last win for the Tigers against the Red Devils was all the way back in 1974.

Hull City have been labelled as certain candidates for relegation, but so far they have managed to beat Premier League champions Leicester City on the opening day of the season and then backed that up with another win. However, the club still faces uncertainty as a Chinese consortium is still trying to take over while the squad only has 13 fit senior players. Interim head coach Mike Phelan will be hoping to add some more players during the final week of the transfer window, but until then he will have to work with what he has.

Manchester United enjoyed a perfect start to the season, with back-to-back wins over Bournemouth and Southampton, with new signing Zlatan Ibrahimovic in particularly good form in front of goal. The Swedish star has scored three goals in the first two Premier League matches of the season. Chris Smalling might make the first eleven this time after he was given a place on the bench last weekend, while new signing Henrikh Mkhitaryan is still waiting for his first Premier League start.

Probable line-ups:

Hull City: Jakupovic - Elmohamady, Livermore, Davies, Robertson - Meyler, Huddlestone, Clucas - Snodgrass, Hernandez, Diomande

Man United: De Gea - Valencia, Smalling, Blind, Shaw - Pogba, Fellaini - Mkhitaryan, Rooney, Martial - Ibrahimovic

My prediction: Manchester United to win 3-1.

Here are the odds for the match at Bet365:

Hull City win - 8.50
Draw - 4.50
Man United win - 1.45

    "The last win for the Tigers against the Red Devils was all the way back in 1974"
    Many of those statistics have been broken in the last few seasons for United so such fact should only worry them.
    Hull City is the biggest surprise of the season so far and this game would be anything but easy for United.
