Premier League new boys Hull City will look to continue their good start to the campaign as they welcome big-spending Manchester United to the KCOM Stadium on Saturday evening.
Hull City v Man Utd
August 27th, 2016
Kick off 17:30
Live on BT Sport 1 / BT Sport 1 HD / BT Sport Ultra HD
Hull City have made a surprisingly good start to life back in the Premier League, recording successive victories. Last time out the Tigers recorded a 2-0 win at Swansea courtesy of late goals from Shaun Maloney and Abel Hernandez.
Incredibly the club from Humberside still only have 13 fit players but have defied the odds under Mike Phelan so far. However, their record against United in the Premier League is poor. The Tigers have failed to win any of the eight Premier League meetings with United, losing on seven occasions.
The Tigers are big underdogs to record a win in this clash and can be backed at odds of 7/1 with Marathon Bet to win this clash.
Manchester United have made a good start to life under Portuguese boss Jose Mourinho, winning both of their Premier League games so far. Last time out the Red Devils recorded a 2-0 win against Southampton at Old Trafford courtesy of a brace from Zlatan Ibrahimovic.
The Swedish star has now scored four goals in three games including the Community Shield Winner and he will fancy his chances of adding to that tally against a makeshift Hull backline.
United are heavy favourites to win this clash at odds 10/21 with Marathon Bet. If you like getting splinters in your backside you can back the draw at odds of 18/5 at Marathon Bet.
Despite Hull’s good start to the campaign, an away win is highly likely in this clash simply because of the way United have started under Mourinho. For me United will have another quality to win this, so back them at odds of 10/21 at Marathon Bet.
