Welcome to our Hull City vs. Manchester United preview. Manchester United will attempt to keep their recent promising form going as they play this very winnable looking fixture against Hull City. One can be certain that the home side will be roared on by an extremely passionate Boxing Day crowd, though, and the Tigers have already upset one big boy this season, beating none other than the current league leaders Liverpool by three goals to one. United must beware as another slip up here would surely end their ailing title challenge.

Team and Selection News

Manchester United have rotated their squad for virtually every fixture this season, and will probably do so again here, with the demanding Christmas and New Year programme ahead of them. This could mean a return for Robin van Persie if fit, while if the Dutchman is still lame, Javier Hernandez may come into David Moyes’ thinking. Elsewhere, Adnan Januzaj may be rested, and Nani may start, while Michael Carrick may return, and one of Rio Ferdinand or Nemanja Vidic may partner Jonny Evans at the back. Hull are unlikely to make too many changes to the eleven that was fielded in their last game, and despite a demanding Christmas period, will undoubtedly play their strongest possible eleven against the defending champions.
