Are the Red Devils on the road to recovery after their win against the Gunners? Will their next match be a resounding success? Read more about 128Casino‘s predictions with the latest Manchester United vs Hull City preview!
After a morale boosting away win against Arsenal at the Emirates Stadium that helped the Red Devils climb to the 4th position on the Premier League table, former European Champions Manchester United will be looking to take advantage of Hull City’s struggles to further strengthen the club’s position. The win against longtime arch-rivals Arsenal was one that was much needed and couldn’t have come at a better time, also making it Manchester United’s first away win while on the road this season. This weekend, the Red Devils will have the home advantage against the wildly unpredictable Hull City, who are placed at the 17th spot (3rd from the bottom) of the table whereas host Manchester United is placed 4th (3rd from the top) of the Premier League table.
Popular opinion is that prior to the club’s defeat over Arsenal, the Red Devils were still considered to be greatly underachieving. Hopes had been raised that the “new” Manchester United under Louis van Gaal’s direction would have no problems clinching a top spot in the Premier League table. Despite the team’s current 4th place positioning, the club had not enjoyed a smooth ride getting there, with some even pointing out that the Red Devils’ win against Arsenal was down to luck. Nevertheless, Manchester United is expected to fare much better than Hull City, who have only won 2 games this season and who are clear of the Premier League relegation zone by just 1 point.
Prediction: Manchester United wins 2-1
The Saints of Southampton are highly favoured to march onto the field of Hull City’s home ground, KC Stadium, to take home what is expected to be an effortless win. Southampton has a gleaming 2014/15 Premier League track record at present that’s further polished by the stunning 8-0 trashing they delivered to Sunderland. With only 1 loss out of the 6 Premier League matches they’ve played, Southampton is in the green and clear to win this one because by contrast, Hull City’s form does not quite compare with their opponent’s. In fact, Hull City will have their work cut out for them in trying to overcome the high spirits of the Saints.
Prediction: Southampton wins 2-0

Just having emerged victorious in a 3-2 away game against Queensland Park Rangers, Liverpool is set to host Hull City 10pm tomorrow night (GMT +8) at Anfield. Considering that Hull City is in good scoring form of late, soccer fans can certainly expect an exciting and entertaining match to take place in this 9th week of the English Premier League. In Hull City’s only win against Liverpool in past head-to-head matches, the Tigers shocked the Reds with a 3-1 home win last December. Seeing as how both teams are fond of an attack-oriented strategy on the football pitch, it is safe to say that there will be plenty of action taking place on the football pitch.
While Hull CIty’s 3-1 win last season might be written off as a fluke, it could be a telling sign of something that their rivals should be worried about. After all, in their last clash against Arsenal, they came away with a respectable 2-2 draw in a match that could have been won if it weren’t for the late equalizer by Arsenal’s Danny Welbeck. It seems that the Tigers have been working hard to live up to their moniker and will try their darndest to give Liverpool a run for their money, despite what the records may show. As such, we can most certainly expect to see a tight match and close encounter between these two clubs, with the likelihood of Mario Balotelli scoring his first Liverpool goal of the Premier League season.
Prediction: Liverpool wins 2-1*
* We are inclined to think that Hull City will definitely score but even then, Liverpool seems favoured to win this match
