Hull City come into this game unbeaten in their last three games which includes two away games. Hull have been outstanding at home this year losing only once to Crystal Palace. The Tigers have won four and drawn three at home this season. Steve Bruce knows his sides ability to survive in the Premier League will be based on their ability to pick up points at home and so far this season the Tigers have done just that including a great win against Liverpool. Robbie Brady, Stephen Meyler, Danny Graham and Sagbo have been the driving force behind the Tigers solid home form and will need to be on top form when they face the Champions in the KC Stadium.
Manchester United are after bouncing back from two defeats in a row by winning their last four games. The goals have also started to flow for the Champions with the team netting nine goals in the last four wins, conceding only once. David Moyes will be hoping that his side can continue this strong run through the Christmas period and hopefully pick up some points on the front runners as alot of the top teams play each other over this time period with league leaders Liverpool in particular visiting Chelsea and Manchester City. Wayne rooney, Danny wellbeck will be key for United over the next few games with Robin Van Persie and Chicarito missing through injury.
This game is intriguing. I think we see a defensive game, Hull have been excellent at home and have only lost once in eight. Hull have also had seven of the eight home games go under the 2.5goal mark. While manchester United have struggled a little for goals this season even given their good form of late I think Hull will make it very difficult for United. likewise United's defence has been impressive of late only conceding five goals in their last ten appearances. I'm going to take the under here at a good price. Follow me on twitter@antonpippo
