Manchester United have won their last eight games in all competitions and have a perfect record at Old Trafford in their previous five following an impressive 4-0 win against Reading in the FA Cup. The Red Devils have also won 11 of their last 12 meetings with Hull and last season’s goalless draw at the KCOM Stadium ended a 10-match winning run against them.
Hull have lost their last six away matches, scoring just one goal during that period. The Tigers have scored the joint fewest number of goals (6) away from home in the Premier League and the 2-0 win against Swansea ended a 10-game winless run inside 90 minutes.
A Look At Manchester United’s Betting Odds
Manchester United are on a great run of form, winning eight successive matches and five in a row at home. The Red Devils have been among the goals at Old Trafford too, scoring 14 and conceding four in those five games.
United have a spectacularly good record against Hull, winning 11 of their last 12 matches and are unsurprisingly 1/5 to beat them for a 12th time in 13 encounters. Jose Mourinho’s men are also 13/20 to be leading at half-time/full-time.
The price that caught our eye is 17/10 on United to win and over 3/5 goals to be scored combined. United’s last four matches at home to Hull have produced 3-4-4-7-5 goals in total and three of their last five games at Old Trafford have involved over 3.5 goals. United to win on the handicap at +2 also looks good value at 8/5, as does evens on more goals to be scored in the second half which has occurred in five of United’s last eight home games.
A Look At Hull’s Betting Odds
Hull’s new manager Marco Silva got off to the perfect start with a 2-0 FA Cup third-round win against fellow Premier League strugglers Swansea. The Portuguese now oversees another cup tie on Tuesday with much more at stake as the Tigers visit Manchester United for the first leg of the EFL Cup semi-final.
City have lost 11 of their last 12 matches against United, but drew at home last season and are 21/4 to go back to the KCOM Stadium with the tie all square, while an improbable win is 23/2.
Hull have now scored in their last three matches which makes the 11/5 on United to win and both teams to score attractive, but there is better value in United to win 2-1, 3-1 and 4-1 at 13/4 in the multiple score bracket.
