PREVIEW: Manchester United v Hull City

Hull City head to Old Trafford (again!) for the third and final part of three games in three weeks against Manchester United. Manager Marco Silva concluded deadline day business with three extra recruits, signing Kamil Grosicki from Rennes - the 48 times capped Polish winger - Alfred N'Diaye on loan from Villareal and Andrea Ranocchia, again on loan from Inter Milan. Heading out the door, Alex Bruce and James Weir have left on loan to Wigan, while promising keeper Rory Watson has signed permanently for Scunthorpe United.

However, once again, injuries seriously hinder team selection for Marco Silva as Curtis Davies, Will Keane, Moses Odubajo, Ryan Mason and Markus Henriksen are all sidelined with long term injuries. Ahmed Elmohamady and Dieumerci Mbokani are still away in the African Cup of Nations as both their respective countries have qualified for the latter stages.

Smarting from his first defeat in 17 matches during a 2-1 loss at Hull City when the clubs last met 6 days ago, manager Jose Mourinho has insisted his team must win this game. The Portuguese boss is set to recall Zlatan Ibrahimovic, Paul Pogba and Antonio Valencia to his team, while hoping Eric Bailly will recover from an ankle injury to return to the side.
