The well known UK brand are adding to the festive cheer for punters by increasing the price on the Red Devils to 5/2 to win, and with United in good form at the moment, there has been plenty of support at 5/2, the firm reported this morning.
Manchester United are seen as strong favourites to beat Hull as The Tigers look to cause a big upset as they host the defending league champions.
This season has been full of surprises and there could be yet more twists and turns on Boxing Day as newly-promoted Hull host defending champions Manchester United.
Although many people might write them off, Hull have been solid this season with Steve Bruce’s side currently sitting in 12th and are six points clear of the relegation zone at this point.
After picking up a 1-1 at West Brom over the weekend, Steve Bruce could feel comfortable sticking with an unchanged squad as he looks to keep momentum rolling over the busy festive period.
The only guaranteed absentee from Bruce’s squad will be midfielder Robbie Brady who is going to being out thanks to a recurring groin problem.
By keeping his squad unchanged, Bruce will hope that he will be able to pick up his first win over Manchester United having failed to defeat his former club during Alex Ferguson’s tenure at Old Trafford.
Bruce has a right to be confident though as Hull have an impressive defensive record at The KC Stadium with the squad only conceding three goals at home so far this season.
United will know that this will be a tricky test for them but the defending Premier League champions know that three points could throw them back into the title race as they would move to within five points of leaders Liverpool.
However, David Moyes will have to get the job done without several of his top stars with many of his top players including Marouane Fellaini who is out for the next six weeks as he finally deals with his persistent wrist injury.
Fellaini will be joined by usual first team regulars such as Robin Van Persie, Nemanja Vidic and Michael Carrick who will all have to cope with watching the game from the stands.
One slightly better piece of good news for Moyes is that Danny Welbeck has overcome the knee injury that forced him off early in Saturday’s win over West Ham.
Boxing Day has always been a traditionally good day for Manchester United with The Red Devils winning their last 10 games held on Christmas and it will be a festive tradition that David Moyes will hope to maintain in 2013.
Everyone is expecting United to pick up the three points against Hull but The Tigers may provide a tough test that could throw up an unwelcomed surprise during the start of the festive period.
