If Hull City are to remain in the English Premier League, they need to beat Manchester United on the final day of the season on Sunday and hope results elsewhere go their way.

With Queens Park Rangers and Burnley already relegated, Hull look the most likely to join them in the Championship next season. Their destiny is no longer in their own hands but there is still a glimmer of hope. If Hull can somehow win here they need West Ham to avoid defeat at Newcastle they would survive and Newcastle would be relegated. Hull did beat Liverpool 1-0 at this ground last month, one of just five home wins and eight all season but all the other top sides have left this stadium maximum points.
Current League Position 4th (as of 21st May)

Away Record P18 W6 D7 L5 GS 21 GC 22
Having secured qualification for the Champions League next season United’s season has been satisfactory but far from spectacular. A slow start to the campaign and below par away record has prevented United from finishing far closer to Chelsea and they look set to finish in fourth spot. Only one third of their road trips have ended in victory and that is certainly something Louis van Gaal will want to rectify next season. In their favour here, United have a dominant record against Hull.

*Odds are correct at the time of publication but are subject to change.
The first goal here is vital and it could be worth taking a chance on Hull who have so much more riding on this game. Whether Hull have enough quality to win over 90 minutes is another matter but the home side get our vote to open the scoring.
Pick: First team to score, Hull @2.30
