    Premier League LIVE: Hull vs. Manchester City

    Probable Lineups:

    ManCity HullHull City (3-5-2): McGregor, Chester, Davies, Bruce, Figueroa, Elmohamady, Huddlestone, Livermore, Meyler, Jelavic, Long

    The ‘Tigers’ will be buoyed by their 3-0 win over Sunderland in last weekend’s FA Cup quarterfinal tie but now face a tough task as they host Manchester City at the KC Stadium.  Steve Bruce could play a defensive 3-5-2 in hopes of hitting the citizens on the break, with Figueroa and Elmohamady operating as wingbacks.  This would allow Nikica Jelavic and Shane Long to both play up top with David Meyler supporting them ‘in the hole’.

    Manchester City (4-2-3-1): Hart, Zabaleta, Kompany, Demichelis, Kolarov, Nasri, Y Touré, Fernandinho, Silva, Dzeko, Negredo

    Manchester City were sent packing by Barcelona in midweek’s Champions League round-of-16 away fixture, however the Citizens will need to bounce back to continue their challenge for the Premier League title.  Manuel Pellegrini will be sweating over the fitness of Sergio Aguero, who limped off once again against the Catalans. If the Argentinian misses the trip, Edin Dzeko and Alvaro Negredo are expected to start as Stevan Jovetic is also a doubt.

    What the fans are saying…

     

     

     

    Remember this?

    Jimmy Bullard scores a penalty against the Citizens, but it was the celebration that will be remembered forever.

    Chelsea are nine points ahead of Manchester City in the table so I slip up here is nothing short of disastrous.  Every game now will count as a big game, and with Sergio Aguero a doubt, they’ll be looking to Yaya Touré for inspiration.  Another goal from the consistent Ivorian?

    Stats to get your head around…
