Hull City vs Sunderland Match Prediction

By Dean Carr

Hull City host Sunderland at the KCOM Stadium on 06/05/17 as the home side look to avoid suffering the same fate as the away side. Hull earned a valiant point away to Southampton last time out, drawing 0-0 thanks to some goalkeeping heroics. Sunderland meanwhile were condemned to relegation following a 1-0 home defeat to Bournemouth last time out. Read on for a full match preview complete with betting tips and predictions.

Betting Tips and Predictions

Hull’s home form at present is extremely impressive, currently having the 4th best home record in the Premier League over the last eight games. Sunderland were put out of their misery last weekend by Bournemouth and have nothing to play for, with pride even out of the question. I’m expecting a confident Hull side to secure a home victory here and move one step closer to safety.

Hull City Preview

Hull brought to an end five defeats on the bounce away from home last weekend after holding mid-table Southampton to a 0-0 draw at St. Mary’s Stadium. Marco Silva’s men enjoyed the better of the first half and came closest to breaking the deadlock when Kamil Grosicki struck the post from a free-kick. However, the second period saw the Saints move into the ascendency and were handed a glorious opportunity when they were awarded a penalty in the 90th minute. Dusan Tadic stepped forward but saw his spot kick saved by Eldin Jakupovic as the Swiss keeper earned what could be a huge point for his team. Now returning to the KCOM Stadium, Hull will be looking to win their fifth game at home in a row after winning four on the bounce prior to this fixture. Since December 30, the Tigers have won eight and drawn two of their ten home games in all competitions and Silva has instilled a tremendous belief in his side when playing in front of their own supporters and their ability to win at home. The only negative to come from Hull’s draw on the south coast last weekend came the following day, as Swansea City came from behind to draw 1-1 away to Manchester United. Currently two points clear of the drop zone, Silva and his team will know this is a game they must get maximum points from.

Hull City Team News

Hull have five first-team players ruled out for the rest of the season, with Moses Odubajo, David Meyler (both knee), Ryan Mason (skull fracture), Omar Elabdellaoui (back) and Will Keane (cruciate ligament) all ruled out indefinitely.

Sunderland Preview

Sunderland’s miserable season received its’ inevitable conclusion at the weekend, with their 1-0 defeat at home to Bournemouth sealing their relegation to the Championship and ending their nine-year spell in the Premier League. Regardless of whether they had won or not, results elsewhere ensured David Moyes’ men would’ve been relegated anyway, although this performance typified a lack of heart and fight which has been present for most of the season. Bournemouth stole the game late on as Ryan Fraser crossed for Josh King to tap in at the far post as an already emptying Stadium of Light was condemned to the fact of playing Championship football next term. Failing to score once again last time out, Sunderland have now managed to score just two goals in their previous nine matches - both of which came in the same game and were handed to them by West Ham’s Darren Randolph. Taking just seven away points all season, they now face a Hull side who are still fighting for their lives at the lower end of the table, although Sunderland still have the chance to have a significant say in the relegation scrap. Facing Hull and Swansea in back-to-back games, Moyes’ side could help ensure one of those sides come down to the Championship with them, while also travelling to Arsenal and Chelsea who still have something left to play for.
