Preview - Hull City -Vs- Manchester United

Hull City welcome the reigning, albeit out of form, Premier League champions to the KC Stadium in the early kick-off today.

City have drawn their last three fixtures against Swansea City, Stoke City and West Bromwich Albion but need a win in order to maintain distance from the bottom three.

Manchester United meanwhile have won their last four in all competitions, most recently recording Premier League victories against Aston Villa and West Ham United.

Hull City Team News

City have no fresh injury worries ahead of today`s game with Robbie Brady unlikely to feature against his former club as a groin injury continues to trouble the midfielder.

Manchester United Team News

Michael Carrick and Robin Van Persie remain long-term injuries with the in-form Danny Welbeck also an injury doubt after picking up a knock against West Ham United.

Referee Appointments

Referee: Michael Oliver

Assistant Referee`s: S. Bennett and S. Ledger

Fourth Official: D. Whitestone

Facts and Statistics

Manchester United enjoy playing on Boxing Day, winning 16 of their last 17 encounters. That solitary defeat came in 2002 in Middlesbrough and to win today, they must find a way past the third best home defence in top European leagues with City having conceded just three goals over eight games.

City`s last win against Manchester United came in 1974 with United winning all four Premier League encounters between the two sides.

Prediction

Hull City 1 - 1 Manchester United
