Manchester United will face Hull City in the weekend Premier League clash at Old Trafford on Saturday 29 November.

Where to watch

Kick-off is at 3pm GMT. Radio commentary of the game will be available on BBC Radio 5 Live. Catch the highlights of the game on Match Of The Day on BBC1 and BBC1 HD at 10.20pm GMT.


After sealing their first away win last weekend against Arsenal, United and their manager Louis van Gaal will be looking for their third straight victory when they host Hull on Saturday.

United have been in good form at home as they have only lost one league game at Old Trafford this season, which came on the opening day against Swansea City. The victory over arch rivals Arsenal has seen them move into fourth spot in the table.

Van Gaal will also welcome Radamel Falcao, who has returned to training earlier this week. However, it is unlikely the Colombian international will start against the Tigers at Old Trafford.

Steve Bruce

Meanwhile, Hull are without a win since their 2-0 victory over Crystal Palace earlier in October. They have lost all their last three league matches.

Steve Bruce will return to Old Trafford, this time as a manager, and he is aware of the threat possessed by United at home. The former United man will be looking for a win against the 20-time English champions and use that as a boost for the upcoming fixtures during the festive period.

What managers say

Steve Bruce: "I always enjoy going back there. I think I'm due a result. Maybe without Sir Alex being there, I might have a chance. I've been going a long time and never been able to beat them. I've had a couple of draws, but that's about it. Let's go and try, play with the enthusiasm we did last week and I'm sure we'll do OK."
