Premier League Preview for Manchester City v Hull City along with Predictions for every result in the EPL. Follow up each match with results and video highlights posted later in the week.
Manchester City are returning home after a shocking 3-2 defeat to newly promoted Cardiff City. They will be very happy to be returning to the Etihad where last season they were 14-3-2. They will be welcoming another promoted side Hull City who got their first win of the 2013-14 Premier League season thanks to a penalty against Norwich.
Manchester City certainly underestimated Cardiff and really let off once they got a goal, thinking they could sit back and hold on. Instead they were shocked and couldn’t find a way to recover.
Hull played well against Norwich and even held on for their win despite going down to ten men. Their defensive stability in the middle and back were certainly a good sign for them, but their lack of goal scoring is a concern.
In Saturday’s early match my prediction is a Manchester City win. They won’t be nearly as complacent as they were against Cardiff and they will be at home. I think Hull will have a very difficult time scoring any goals and their only real hope will be to try to hold on for a 0-0 draw. Though I do think that this will be difficult against a very strong Manchester City team looking for a way to bounce back.
Form: Manchester City (W, L) Hull City (L, W)
Prediction: Manchester City 2 – 0 Hull City
