The Citizens travel to the KC Stadium for their 3 o' clock kick-off on Saturday.
Earlier this week Hull City manager Steve Bruce described his teams exit in the Capital One Cup during the week to West Brom as “disappointing” and a result that changed what could have been a great start for them into just an “OK start”.
Manuel Pellegrini’s side haven’t had a great start to life this term themselves with only two wins out of a possible five leaving them outside of the top four and five points behind league leaders Chelsea.
Both Samir Nasri and Fernando could sit out of this one, while Pablo Zabaleta is banned after his red card against Chelsea last week. Sergio Aguero and David Silva should return after suffering knocks but Stefan Jovetic is likely to be absent through injury until their match against Roma next week.
Last season Hull shipped six points to City in this fixture losing both games 2-0. Steve Bruce had some praise for the opposition but did say if they weren’t on their game then his side could have a chance but only if they played at their maximum themselves.
Away fixtures can be tricky at the best of times and with Manchester City’s inconsistent start to the season Hull City will want to give a good showing at home even if only the one point is up for grabs. City’s quality is beginning to show but they’re still building the type of momentum that we saw from them in their title winning side.
If Hull City can play at their best and perhaps get a little bit of luck we may just see their streak of three draws from five games continue with another point but we just favour City to do the job again. Our prediction? Sorry Tigers but its another 2-0 win for City!
