Hull City and Manchester United currently sit on 6 points each after their first two fixtures. Mourinho’s title challenging side and Phelan’s relegation favorites are probably at their closest point over the course of this season, but their objectives from the game are very different.
Premier League Betting Previews, Odds & Tips – Hull City vs Man. United
Mourinho’s side currently have a perfect record in the PL, winning both their games in convincing fashion: 3-1 away against Bournemouth and 2-0 at home against Southampton. The Red Devils played very well in both games, creating chances and producing good attacking football.
The highlights so far were the very quick adaptation by Zlatan Ibrahimovic, who scored 3 goals so far, and the return of typical Man United attacking fullbacks: Luke Shaw and Antonio Valencia. If they manage to maintain this form for the entire season, the Red Devils will surely challenge for the title.
On the other hand, Hull City produced two surprises so far: they beat Leicester at home on day 1 and Swansea away on day 2. Even though the team made no transfers so far and still is widely regarded as the first team to drop, they started exceptionally well and are quick on their way towards the big 40-point objective which ensures survival.
They will look to play counter-attacking football against the Red Devils at home, because they don’t expect to be able to go head-to-head with them.
From a betting perspective, we see a clear winner for this game, and that is Manchester United. The team should be too hard to crack for Hull, and Zlatan Ibrahimovic is the favorite to score, especially because he is the team’s new penalty taker. Best of luck!
