Manchester United: Predicted XI v Hull City

Football News

Premier League champions Manchester United will move up to sixth place in the table, albeit temporarily, if they secure an away win over Hull City at the KC Stadium on Boxing Day.

The Red Devils have won their last four matches in all competitions and are, somewhat surprisingly, just eight points behind league-leaders Liverpool.

Is it really safe to rule David Moyes's men out of the title race just yet?

United have not lost away from Old Trafford since the 1-0 defeat to fierce rivals Liverpool on September 1 - and they will be expected to secure three vital points against the Tigers.

Moyes will be without the injured duo Michael Carrick and Robin van Persie, while Marouane Fellaini has been ruled out until late January after undergoing a wrist operation.

In-form striker Danny Welbeck is also a doubt, but the England international is expected to lead the United line after he was cleared to travel with the rest of the squad to Hull.

The rest of the team, meanwhile, shouldn't change too much from the side that recorded a convincing 3-1 victory over West Ham United last weekend.

Manchester United's predicted XI: De Gea; Rafael, Smalling, Evans, Evra; Jones, Cleverley; Valencia, Rooney, Januzaj; Welbeck.
