Predicted Hull City and Southampton line-ups - One change for the Saints

Hull City KC Stadium

Match to be played on Saturday 1st November 2014 at 15:00. Venue: The KC Stadium, Hull.

Hull City manager Steve Bruce will be pleased with the performance of his team at Liverpool last weekend, as they face an extremely difficult game against Southampton.

The Saints have been playing some of the best football in the Premier League over recent weeks and will try and put the pressure on the Tigers with an aggressive away performance.

A win for Hull could see them move above Manchester United in the table and into the group of teams currently in and around the European places on 14 points.

The incentive for Southampton could be that they draw level on points with Chelsea if they win and QPR somehow manage to get a result at Stamford Bridge, condemning the Blues to their first defeat of the season.

Both teams have injuries to key players heading into the match but any stars unavailable create opportunities for others to step in and take advantage.

Hull City: Jakupovic, Chester, Bruce, Davies, Elmohamady, Livermore, Diame, Huddlestone, Brady, Ben Arfa, Hernandez

Southampton: Forster, Clyne, Fonte, Alderweireld, Bertrand, Davis, Schneiderlin, Wanyama, Tadic, Pelle, Mane
