CONFIRMED: Hull City v Manchester City line-ups - Caballero starts!

Hull City KC North Stand

Here are the sides for Hull City against Manchester City this afternoon.

Hull City: McGregor, Rosenior, Davies, Dawson, Robertson, Huddlestone, Livermore, Diame, Elmohamady, Jelavic, Hernandez

Subs: Harper, Bruce, Chester, Meyler, Brady, Ramirez, Ben Arfa

Manchester City: Caballero, Zabaleta, Kompany, Mangala, Clichy, Milner, Fernandinho, Yaya Toure, Silva, Aguero, Dzeko

Subs: Hart, Sagna, Kolarov, Navas, Lampard, Pozo, Demichelis

Both sides head into the Premier League game this afternoon off the back of very different mid-week League Cup results.

Hull were defeated 3-2 by West Brom in one of the only games the Baggies have won this season while Manchester City strolled to a 7-0 win against Sheffield Wednesday.

As far as the league is concerned, Hull’s incentive is to win and move above Manchester City in the Premier League table.

Hull have proven difficult to beat this season with three draws so far but Steve Bruce will want the side to start putting digits in the wins column.

Manchester City could move back into the top four with three points this afternoon.

Manuel Pellegrini’s side have been accused of complacency this season but they have defended well, conceding just five goals throughout the season so far.

Fingers crossed the attack can fire and help the side secure some vital points and gain ground on their rivals.
