Aside from the small matter of being the world’s fastest man, Usain Bolt is a massive Manchester United supporter.

The 100m and 200m world record holder makes no secret of his footballing allegiances and is often vocal when it comes to matters regarding the Red Devils.

It’s also become apparent this week that he is keen to criticise one of the club’s biggest rivals, Liverpool. In fact, Bolt has delivered a subliminal blow to the Reds with a hilarious Premier League prediction.

It seems whenever there is drama at Old Trafford, Bolt seems to chip in with his opinion on the matter.

Whether it be expressing disappointment over David Moyes or excitement regarding Jose Mourinho, the Jamaican is an active supporter. Football proves a great source of interest for Bolt, not just athletics and cricket.

Therefore, upon being invited to offer his Premier League predictions for this weekend’s fixture, he was keen to fight in United’s corner.

Unsurprisingly, the 30-year-old forecasts a victory for the Red Devils at home to champions Leicester City. Despite United losing three of their last four games, he is hopeful that normal service will resume.

Bolt also thinks Arsenal versus Chelsea would end in a draw and that Tottenham would emerge victorious against Middlesbrough.

The most notable call by Bolt proved that regarding Liverpool-Hull City though. Despite the Reds’ opponents, the Olympian wasn’t keen to back United’s most long-term enemy.

Jurgen Klopp’s men may have won at Stamford Bridge and the Emirates this season, but Bolt anticipates a home defeat at the hands of Hull. He cited the Anfield side’s struggles against smaller teams for the decision.

Interestingly though, Bolt has backed Manchester City upon their second trip to the Liberty Stadium in a week. They may be United’s local rivals, but the 30-year-old believes they are in such electrifying form that a slip-up in Wales is highly unlikely.

So, if Bolt’s predictions do prove fruitful, Liverpool are in for a huge shock at the hands of relegation favourites Hull.

The Tigers may have beaten the champions already this season, but a win at Anfield seems a little far-fetched. That being said, as far as backing goes, they’ve been given it from one of sports’ greatest sons.

Over to you, Mike Phelan.
