Hull City vs Manchester United | Sunday 24 May, 2015 | KC Stadium | 15.00
Hull City host Manchester United on Sunday knowing that a win is their only chance to avoid relegation.
If Newcastle win at home to West Ham, however, and Sunderland pick up one more point this season, Hull’s result will prove irrelevant and they will slip back to the Championship.
Having to beat Manchester United will be hard enough, but manager Steve Bruce will also be fighting history on Sunday as the Tigers have failed to record a victory against United since 1974.
Bruce knows that it will be a tough match against United but he is hopeful that his side can pull off a miracle.
After Saturday’s 2-0 loss at Tottenham, he said: “we’ve beaten Liverpool [at home]. We’ve played well against Chelsea. We’ve got to beat Man United. We’ve got to turn the tables.
“We will prepare as best we can for a huge game. We are playing Manchester United so let’s hope we can produce a performance like today and give ourselves a chance.”
Manchester United, meanwhile, are guaranteed a top four finish this season. Manager Louis Van Gaal has achieved his main objective in his first campaign following last season’s seventh place finish under predecessor David Moyes.
However, England star Chris Smalling, who captained United for the first time in last weekend’s 1-1 draw with Arsenal, said it’s nowhere near good enough.
“It’s not a season where we’re massively celebrating, it’s a step.
“Hopefully next season we’ll be having a parade with something to really cheer about.”
Smalling has also warned Hull City that Manchester United are intent on beating them in Sunday’s final Premier League match, and added: “It will be tough. They’ve got a lot to play for but we’ll want to finish the season on a high. We want to make sure that we go out with a win.”

With the all-important top four spot already secured, there is no pressure on Van Gaal’s side on Sunday while Hull will fight to the death to get the points they desperately need.
However, Van Gaal won’t allow his players to take their foot off the gas, regardless of the context of the game and we expect United to come away with three points to end the season on a high.
We’re feeling a 2-0 victory for Manchester United priced at 9/1 with Betway.
