Hull City vs Man Utd: Projected lineups
Manchester United have gotten back on the winning track once again having managed two straight three goal performances and two back-to-back victories.
Their ensuing trip to Hull City on Boxing Day could be a tough one as the Tigers are more than capable of playing any big club to a draw and lately the Red Devils have shown frailty against lesser opponents on paper.
With Danny Welbeck joining the list of injured United stars, Javier Hernandez could once again be thrust back into the first team in front of Wayne Rooney.
David Moyes needs another victory as he continues to battle to get his side back into the top four by the end of January if at all possible.
Steve Bruce will be positive about his chances to take points from his former club at home, however, the Tigers will have to get on the board early or risk allowing United to play into the match and gain control.
Hull XI: McGregor; Chester, Bruce, Davies; Elmohamady, Huddlestone, Livermore, Meyler, Figueroa; Sagbo, Graham.
United XI: De Gea; Rafael, Jones, Evans, Evra; Cleverly, Giggs; Valencia, Rooney, Januzaj; Hernandez.
