Man Utd vs Hull – Premier League preview and team news

Manchester United have the chance to make it three successive Premier League wins for the first time in almost a year as they take on struggling Hull City.

Manager Louis van Gaal will have delighted to claim the first win of his tenure against a side expected to challenge for major honours in Arsenal, but he will be aware that luck was a major contributing factor, as the Gunners missed several clear chances which surely would have put the result beyond doubt.

As it was, with David De Gea in form, they got an important three points which have lifted them to fourth place, and the Red Devils will now be confident of putting a strong run of form together. That said, the defence clearly needs to do better.

The Tigers have a very poor record against United in the Premier League, but they are in need of a positive outcome having slipped to fourth from bottom in the wake of their cruel late defeat to Tottenham.

It was a game that began so well, as Jake Livermore had put them in front and they playing good football, but the sending off of Gaston Ramirez changed things completely and had a say in the final reckoning.

Daley Blind and Marcos Rojo are both out for Man Utd, with Radamel Falcao hoping to be fit having not played since October.

Aside from Ramirez, who begins a suspension, Hull will be without long-term absentee Robert Snodgrass, but are hopeful that Mohamed Diame can return from a knee problem.
