Manchester United vs Hull City Match Prediction

By Dean Carr

Manchester United welcome Hull City to Old Trafford on 10/01/17 in the first leg of the EFL Cup semi-finals. United enjoyed a comfortable progression to the fourth round of the FA Cup in their previous outing, beating Reading 4-0 at home. Hull too ensured their name would be in the hat for Monday’s fourth round draw after overcoming fellow relegation candidates Swansea City 2-0 in Marco Silva’s first game in charge of the Tigers. Read on for a full match preview complete with betting tips and predictions.

Man United Preview

Manchester United cruised past Jaap Stam’s Reading on Saturday lunchtime to give themselves the perfect preparation for Tuesday evening’s semi-final. Wayne Rooney equalled Sir Bobby Charlton’s all-time United goalscoring record when he gave his side the lead seven minutes in, before Anthony Martial’s neat finish made it two. Then, Marcus Rashford - who was given a rare opportunity to play in his rightful position as a centre forward - scored a quick double in the last fifteen minutes, first from Michael Carrick’s excellent pass before pouncing on Ali Al-Habsi’s shocking error to complete the rout. Jose Mourinho’s side have now won their ;last eight matches on the bounce, remaining unbeaten in their previous fourteen since going down 2-1 at Fenerbahce in the Europa League over two months ago. Their current relentless form must add a tint of frustration to Mourinho, with his side still sitting outside the top four and trailing leaders Chelsea by ten points. Despite playing the side bottom of the table, Mourinho has confirmed that Antonio Valencia, Ander Herrera, Paul Pogba and Zlatan Ibrahimovic will all start this one, all of whom were left out of the squad that faced Reading on Saturday.

Man United to win 3-0 11/2

Hull Preview

Hull City ended a seven-match winless streak courtesy of their 2-0 defeat of Swansea on Saturday, giving new boss Marco Silva the perfect start to life at the KCOM Stadium. The Tigers left it late in their attempts to secure victory, with striker Abel Hernandez breaking the deadlock in the 78th minute. Then, with the clock winding down, 17-year-old Josh Tymon broke through to score his first goal for the club in stoppage time and seal their place in the next round of the cup. It’s certainly been a quick baptism of fire for Silva, who now has the daunting task of finding a way of getting a result against a United side who are unbeaten in over two months. Silva has earned a reputation of being somewhat pragmatic in his approach, drawing regular comparisons to his opposite number on the touchline in doing so in Mourinho. Despite losing eight on the bounce away from home in the Premier League, Hull have enjoyed success on the road in this competition, beating Exeter, Stoke and Bristol City on the road en route to reaching the last four. Hull have faced Man United once already this season, ending in a 1-0 defeat for the Tigers, although they will take heart from the fact they remained competitive throughout and only lost the game in the closing seconds through a Rashford goal.

Man United Team News

Luke Shaw (groin) is a doubt, as is Marcos Rojo (calf) who limped off against Reading meaning Chris Smalling and Phil Jones should start in defence. Antonio Valencia, Ander Herrera, Paul Pogba and Zlatan Ibrahimovic will all start. Eric Bailly is at the Africa Cup of Nations.

Hull Team News

Alex Bruce (achilles), Moses Odubajo (knee) and William Keane (cruciate ligament) remain long-term absentees for Hull. Dieumerci Mbokani and Ahmed Elmohamady are both at the Africa Cup of Nations, while defenders Michael Dawson (shoulder) and Curtis Davies (hamstring) will both hope to shake off knocks to be involved.

Betting Tips and Predictions

Manchester United look really impressive at this moment in time and the wind is certainly in the sails of Jose Mourinho’s side. The arrival of Marco Silva seems to have given a lift to the Hull squad if Saturday’s result is anything to go by, but it’s asking a huge amount for a new manager to come and get a result from Old Trafford in his second game in English football. I’m expecting the home side to take an early advantage in this two-legged tie.
