PREVIEW: Manchester City v Hull City

After a successful maximum 6 point haul at home over the past week, the Tigers now face arguably their toughest remain fixture of their remaining Premier League campaign, when taking on Manchester City. If visiting boss Marco Silva is to work his magic here, he'll enter the history books, as the Tigers have never won a league fixture on away territory against the Citizens.

City v City

With relegation survival hopes receiving a real shot in the arm, Silva has taken the club out of the bottom three for the first time since arriving. The back-to-back victories over West Ham United and Middlesbrough have come at a cost, though, with in-form Harry Maguire suffering a minor knee injury in the 4-2 victory over the latter of our relegation rivals. Michael Dawson is fit again and should takeover to skipper the side. Better news sees Abel Hernandez passed fit after his knock and Tom Huddlestone serves the last match of a 3 game ban.

Manchester City manager Pep Guardiola has suffered his sixth defeat of the season in the league this season at Chelsea in midweek, something that has never happened before. Indeed, more noticeably the home side have not won in four matches now, as they strive to make the top four. Bacary Sagna, Gabriel Jesus and Ilkay Gundogan remain injured, but Vincent Kompany and Fabien Delph will be hoping to keep the shirts they got during the Chelsea game in midweek.
