Recent respective form guides

Hull City's poor home run has seen them win just 1 and draw 2 of the last six. While The Tigers have scored 6, a worringly large 9 have been leaked at the other end.

Man. Utd.'s away form is none too clever either, with a marvellous return of five wins and one defeat from the last six. The games have constituted a decent return of 10 goals for the Red Devils, and 4 goals against.

Hull City are hovering perilously just above the relegation zone, with 35 points from 37 matches. Man. Utd. are currently sitting proudly at the top of the entire league, having collected 87 points from the 37 games played.
