It’s the battle of the early pacesetters as Hull City take on Manchester United at the KCOM Stadium in this evening’s late Premier League kick-off.
Both sides have taken maximum points from their opening two fixtures, but something will have to give here.
Surprise package Hull followed their 1-0 win against champions Leicester City on the opening day with a 2-0 win away at Sawnsea – despite having having so few players to call upon, the Tigers are defying the odds.
For tonight’s match, interim manager Mike Phelan doesn’t have the luxury of rotation, so the team is unchanged from that which won at the Liberty Stadium last weekend.

Midfielder Jake Livermore continues in defence, but arrivals are expected before Wednesday’s transfer deadline.
Manchester United also name an unchanged lineup from that which beat Southampton last weekend. Henrikh Mkhytaryan will have to wait a bit longer for his first competitive start for the club, as Juan Mata starts on the right wing once again.
