With a win against Hull today, Moyes’ men could move as high as fifth in the league table providing other results go our way. The incentive is there for our lads, and its up to us we bring all three points home against Steve Bruce’s very hard to beat Hull City side.
I expect Moyes to play his strongest available team today, and then rest a few when United head to Carrow Road to take on Norwich on Sunday.
KO: 12:45 BST

Both sides have a few injury concerns heading into this one, but we’ll start with United. Marouane Fellaini has been ruled out for six weeks after having wrist surgery at the weekend, and Robin van Persie is still out injured heading into the New Year. Skilful winger Nani is missing with a hamstring problem, whereas the duo of Michael Carrick and Danny Welbeck are both hoping to be fit for the Hull clash.
Our hosts are without the former United winger, and Hull star man Robbie Brady, he’s missing with a groin problem. Another former United man, Joe Dudgeon will miss the game due to a knee injury. Sone Aluko is certain to miss out with a calf problem.
Hull have only lost once at home so far this season which is one of the best records in the country. Steve Bruce sets up his side in a very organised manner making them difficult to break down. United will find it hard today, and will have to be at their creative best if they want to take all three points back to Old Trafford.
Score prediction: Hull 0-1 United
