Match Preview : Manchester United vs Hull

Wednesday, February 1st, 2017

Manchester United have won each of their last five home matches against Hull and haven’t lost at Old Trafford in any competition since September.

Hull have lost each of their last nine away matches in all competitions and have only scored in two of those fixtures.

The Tigers did pull off a surprise win over United in a meaningless second leg EFL Cup semi final clash last Thursday but this is a completely differe-nt match. Place you Bet on United to win on NaijaBet.com

Match Preview : West Ham vs Manchester City

Tuesday, January 31st, 2017

West Ham have found some form at the right moment and are now 12 points adrift of the bottom three after winning five of their last seven in the league.

Manchester City have only won one of their last four in the Premier League but performed well in their draw against Tottenham before comfortably beating Crystal Palace in the FA Cup at the weekend.

They are two points adrift of fourth place Liverpool ahead of the midweek fixtures and cannot afford to drop many more points in their bid to finish in the top four.

Pep Guardiola’s side only recently won 5-0 at West Ham in the FA Cup third round but they can expect a tougher contest here. These games are usually high scoring so goals can be expected again on Wednesday night.
