Manchester United return to Premier League action on Wednesday when they host struggling Hull City at Old Trafford (8pm kick-off).
Jose Mourinho’s men got the better of the Tigers in the League Cup semi-final, although did lose 2-1 at the KCOM Stadium last Thursday, before sweeping aside Championship outfit Wigan 4-0 in the fourth round of the FA Cup on Sunday.
Their last league outing saw them draw 1-1 at Stoke, with Wayne Rooney netting his 250th goal for the club, and in turn overtaking Sir Bobby Charlton’s long-standing record as United’s all-time leading goal-scorer.
Mourinho’s men could really do with all three points on Wednesday having drawn their last two league games, yet they know they’ll be in for a tough evening against Marco Silva’s Hull, who will be buoyed after beating the Red Devils only last week.
However, they did lose 4-1 at Championship side Fulham on Sunday in the FA Cup to set them back a little, but the ultimate aim this season is Premier League survival and, given that they are two points adrift of safety at present, they’ll hope to get something from a tricky trip to Old Trafford on Wednesday.
