Predicted Manchester United Starting XI vs Hull City



Manchester United are in the midst of fixture congestion, and Manager Jose Mourinho has made his voice heard on the topic. Spoiler alert, he isn’t happy about it. The Red Devils are facing Hull City for the second time since January 26th.

United, currently in sixth place, will now take on the 19th place Tigers Wednesday night in the mid-week fixture.

United are four points off the top four, while Hull City are squarely in the relegation zone so this is a huge match for both sides.

“The last time we played them, even a defeat would have been a good result. Even to lose the match by one goal difference would give us a final.

“And tomorrow only three points is a good result for us so if we don’t win it’s really bad because we need to win matches. That’s a big difference, we need to win the match.”

    Rumour is that Bailly has an injury so I expect Rojo to start and Jose has indicated that Ashley Young will play whether that is as a starter or a sub we will have to wait and see
