Manchester United are a perfect two for two in Premier League games under Jose Mourinho, with the side making a real confident start to life with their new gaffer. They’ll be hoping for that run to continue this weekend, but it isn’t going to be easy.
Hull City are the opponents, who are under management by Sir Alex Ferguson’s former assistant, Mike Phelan. Like United, The Tigers have won their first two matches, and have looked like a real menacing outfit – particularly on the break.
Date: 27th August, 2016.
Time: 17:30 BST
Venue: KCOM Stadium
Referee: Jonathan Moss.
Jose Mourinho met the media ahead of the game earlier today, and didn’t mention any fresh injuries whatsoever. On top of that, Jesse Lingard has returned to the fold after being pictured in action earlier this week.
The team are certainly looking in brilliant shape at the moment, and if the lads play to their full capabilities, we should be able to make it nine points out of nine.
Score Prediction: Hull City 0-2 Manchester United.
Mourinho’s men should have more than enough quality to dispatch Hull, and with the form of Zlatan Ibrahimovic, the big man will likely be the man to grab the goals.
