Manchester United travel to face the Tigers in an English Premiership clash at the KC Stadium. After securing four victories in a row in all competitions, there seems to be a fresh breathe for David Moyes who began the season on a shaky note.
The champions are eight on the EPL table and will be hoping to improve on their ranking when they face a Hull City side who have been impressive at home. Ladbrokes back the Red Devils to secure victory on Boxing Day. They are a 4/7 (1.08) play according to the bookies.
Hull have only lost once at home in the Premier League so far this season and have only conceded three goals which is the best in the division. They are massive underdogs to win this game. Ladbrokes is offering 5/1 (6.00) that they should silence the Manchester based outfit.
One fact that may impress the visitors is that since Hull’s shock win over Liverpool, they have been unable to register a win, losing once and drawing three in the process. Aside from this, they have also lost all four previous matches against United in the Premier League.
Having silenced Liverpool 3-1 at the beginning of the month, they will be looking to spring another surprise at the KC Stadium. You can back both teams to score at 10/11 (1.90).
Steve Bruce will be without team’s top scorer Robbie Brady who has been ruled out of the Christmas schedule with a groin injury. Baring in mind that Manchester United are undefeated in 18 of their last 20 away matches in the Premier League. There is a stand out bet that Manchester United score first and last at 4/7 (1.08).
With Robin Van Persie sidelined for this clash, Mexican forward Javier Hernandez tops the goal scorer’s market as he is available at 4/1 (5.00) to find the back of the net first on Thursday afternoon. Wayne Rooney, who scored five times in the previous two meetings against Hull, will be looking to build upon his 10 goals this season. He is a 5/1 (6.00) choice with Ladbrokes that he gets the curtain raiser.
