Their comeback to the Premier League started on a grand note and they are currently at the third position in the league table just behind today's opponent Manchester United on goal difference.

Manchester United too have kick-started the 2016/17 season on a very high note under new manager Jose Mourinho. They won both their matches convincingly, AFC Bournemouth in the first match and Southampton in the second.

Their star recruit Zlatan Ibrahimovic has announced his arrival in the English Premier League by scoring 3 goals in the first two matches. His brace last week helped the Red Devils secure vital 3 points against the Saints.

Another star player Paul Pogba who came back to Old Trafford after 3 seasons for a world record transfer fee too impressed last week.

Michael Smalling has fully recovered and is all set to start alongside Eric Bailly at the heart of Manchester United's defense. He is likely to replace Daley Blind the first eleven.

There is a slight chance that Jose Mourinho might hand Morgan Schneiderlin his first start of the season beside Pogba in the central midfield, but we expect Marouane Fellaini to retain his spot as he had a decent outing last week. The attack force will remain unchanged.

Steve Bruce too is likely keep his starting lineup unchanged who have done stunning job so far in the season. A newly promoted side winning both their matches and currently placed among the top 3 in the league is a huge achievement.

Hull City will look forward to continue their good form and try contain Manchester United for a draw.
