Manchester United will be looking to make it three wins from three when the reds travel to the KC Stadium this Saturday evening to face Hull City.
Jose Mourinho’s men have enjoyed back to back successive victories against Bournemouth and Southampton, whilst for the visitors they have equally made an impressive start to the new campaign defeating Leicester City on the opening day and Swansea City last time out.
With the reds already looking like serious contenders for the Premier League Title, we give you five reasons why Manchester United will beat Hull City on Saturday.
Zlatan Ibrahimovic, just seeing the Swede’s name on the team sheet can strike fear into the opponent’s eye before the game has even begun and with Ibrahimovic already in fine goal scoring form he will no doubt be looking to add to his tally against the tigers.
Record at the KC Stadium
United’s record at the KC Stadium over the years has been mighty impressive. In the last four visits to Humberside, united have won three out of the four encounters drawing just one. If form is anything to go by, there should only be one winner on Saturday and that is Manchester United.
Jose Mourinho has brought back that winning mentality back to Manchester United and him alone standing on the side-lines has brought back a winning mentality amongst the players. When United travel up North to face Hull on Saturday, Mourinho will once again demand everything from his players. Drawing or losing doesn’t even come into the Portuguese thinking, he must win and that mentality will no doubt be in the minds of the united layers who take the field on Saturday and is yet another reason why Manchester United will be taking three points away from the KC Stadium.
Slowly but surely Mourinho’s new look united side is starting to tick. Two successive victories in the Premier League, followed by a 2-1 triumph over Leicester City in the Community Shield have seen united make an excellent start to the new campaign. With players still adjusting to Mourinho’s new look tactics and with more players getting back to full fitness it is only a matter of time before Manchester United click and it could happen against the tigers.
With Henrikh Mkhitaryan likely to be handed his first start of the season on Saturday, he will no doubt be chomping at the bit to show Mourinho just what he is all about. Rumoured to be starting in an more advanced number ten role, the Armenian could potentially cause the tigers defence all sorts of problems, problems of which they will simply have no answer for.
