Manchester City will be hoping to put their Champions League exit at the hands of Barcelona behind them with victory at Hull City in today’s early Premier League kick-off.
The Premier League is the only trophy left they can win but, despite having three games in hand on leaders Chelsea, they sit nine points adrift of the summit. A convincing victory at the KC Stadium today could reignite their title dreams.
Hull are just five points off the bottom three and cannot yet start planning for top flight football next season, with the battle for relegation destined to go all the way. Steve Bruce will be confident his side can beat the drop, but may have to wait another week before they can start picking up the points.
Here are today’s confirmed starting line-ups for both sides…
Hull City Starting XI: McGregor, Rosenior, Elmohamady, Figueroa, Chester, Davies, Huddlestone, Meyler, Livermore, Jelavic, Long #UTT
