Manchester United team news: Predicted XI as Jose Mourinho’s side face Mike Phelan’s Hull City

26 Aug

Manchester United will be looking to maintain their 100 per cent record in the new Premier League season when they travel to Hull City.


Jose Mourinho got his career as Red Devils boss underway with a victory over Leicester in the Community Shield before grabbing league wins against Bournemouth and Southampton

The clash – which is LIVE on talkSPORT (17:30 kick-off, Saturday) – sees ex-United assistant manager Mike Phelan face his former club. The 53-year-old, who is caretaker manager of the Tigers following Steve Bruce’s departure, started working with the reserve team at Old Trafford in 1999, before working under Sir Alex Ferguson and leaving in 2013.

Injury-hit Hull have also made a winning start and captain Curtis Davies spoke to Kick Off on talkSPORT earlier this week, backing Phelan for the full-time post – click here to listen to the podcast.

United have a fully-fit squad to select from, with no suspensions. English duo Chris Smalling and Marcus Rashford are pushing for their firsrt starts of the season – the latter is yet to play in the league in the 2016/17 campaign. 

Will United be able to pick up all three points? Will Mourinho field an unchanged side from their win against the Saints?
