Ibrahimovic, Mkhitaryan, Pogba and Rashford lead the attack against Hull

Manchester United face Hull City in the Premier League at Old Trafford this evening, a week after losing 2-1 in the EFL Cup semi-final second leg, their first defeat in a few months. United got back to winning ways beating Wigan Athletic in the Emirates FA Cup at Old Trafford on Sunday evening. United need to be taking advantage of their rivals this evening, ensuring Hull leave the Theatre of Dreams without any points from the match. Liverpool and Chelsea drew 1-1, Tottenham Hotspur drew with Sunderland and Arsenal lost to Watford which leaves United in a good position to claw back some of the void of points above them, seeing them with a good chance of getting back into the top four in the coming weeks.

Manchester United:

De Gea;

Valencia, Jones, Rojo, Blind;

Carrick, Herrera;

Mkhitaryan, Pogba, Rashford;

Ibrahimovic

Substitutes:

Romero; Smalling; Mata, Martial, Lingard, Young; Rooney

Hull City:

Jakupovic;

Meyler, Maguire, Dawson, Robertson;

Huddlestone, Clucas;

Markovic, Evandro, Tymon;

Niasse

Substitutes:

Marshall, Hernandez, Ranocchia, Elabdellaoui, Maloney, Diomande, Bowen

United have a good record against Hull City in the 31 matches they have played in the history of both clubs. United have won 21 matches, drawn four and lost six – which should suggest United will be ready to get the better of Marcos Silva’s side, but I do not think it will be an easy encounter as the visitors will be looking to cause an upset knowing that they beat United a week ago in the EFL Cup, but that would have felt like a defeat knowing that they did not do enough to get to the EFL Cup final at Wembley at the end of the month.
