Steve Bruce’s side will be fully aware that anything less than all three points will see them relegated and the omens are firmly stacked against the Tigers manager as he is yet to register a victory over his former club in 20 Premier League meetings.
They have lost their last three games in succession which has left them in the bottom three, two points adrift of Newcastle United and need the Magpies to fail to beat West Ham United at St James’ Park whilst making sure they get the job done against an United side that has nothing to play for.
Midfielder Jake Livermore will miss out again due to his off-pitch issues, but Bruce is set to choose from the same squad that lost 2-0 against Tottenham last Saturday, meaning the likes of Mo Diame and Gaston Ramirez remain sidelined.
Meanwhile, The Red Devils have already secured a top-four finish in the league and still have a very slim chance of overtaking Arsenal in third, however, it would have to take an amazing set of events for that to happen.
United would need to win their game, and hope that as well as the Gunners losing at home to West Brom there is also a seven goal swing – which seems very unlikely to occur given the away side’s failure to keep a clean sheet in their last eight games.
Louis van Gaal admitted in his press conference that he would be fielding his strongest team available but could be without Player of the Season David De Gea, who is a major doubt after limping out of the 1-1 draw against Arsenal last weekend. His absence could hand Victor Valdes a first league start in goal while captain Wayne Rooney is set to return.
