What an exciting end to the season for Hull City. Two weeks ago, Hull was the one deem for relegation but after last week they managed to be ahead of the relegation pack with 1 point. Hull currently with 35 points and in 17th place, needs a win to seal their destiny. It all comes down to this game at KC stadium where Hull City can determine their own fate. A win here would see them safe for another season in the Premier League.

Hull City’s first season in the Premier League has determined by the result of the last game of the season. They are facing already the Premiership Champion Manchester United in a match where win at all cost could be the element of the day. With only one point advantage and if Hull does not beat Manchester United then they will have to rely on Newcastle not picking more than a point against Aston Villa in order to stay in the league. It’s all sounds confusing but that is the beauty of the last day play of the season. Manager Phil Brown has a full squad available to pick from for the Sunday match. Long term injuries to Jimmy Bullard, Ian Ashbee and Anthony Gardner will not feature. Both Kamil Zayatte and Bernard Mendy will be tested before the match as they are both struggling with head and toe injuries respectively. On loan striker Manucho will not be available due to the reason that he is unable to play against his parent club, so Caleb Forlan will step back in the lineup after serving his suspension last week.

Already crowned champions of English football, Manchester United will travel with to the KC stadium with a weaker squad and only with a few hosts of star players as Alex Ferguson will rest the rest ahead of the Champions League final this coming Wednesday. Players like Wayne Rooney, Christano Ronaldo and Michael Carrick will not feature against Hull. Alex will be sending a team of youngsters and possibly find Macheda, Danny Gibson, Danny Welbeck in the pecking order. Senior members of the team like Wes Brown and Rio Ferdinand might feature in the game and on the day captain Darren Fletcher will most likely play as he misses out of the Champions League Final due to suspension.

Last game of the season usually means the life or death for some teams. Newly crowned champion Manchester United will not have to contemplate whether they win or lose here. On the other hand, Hull needs everything they have to get their way for just this match to meet their objective of the season, survival. With a depleted Manchester United team, Hull looks more favorable here and mybet is offering 3.25 for a draw on Saturday.
