Here is how Hull City and Newcastle United will line up for this afternoon’s match:
Hull City welcome Newcastle United to the KC Stadium this afternoon as clubs return to Premier League duties following a week of cup action.
The Tigers are currently 18th in the table, with 19 points from 22 matches, and this is a game they will be desperate to win to ensure a boost heading into February.
As for Newcastle, they are 11th, eight points better off than today’s hosts, but the Magpies have won just one of their last seven matches with the Tigers, which came last season.
With 19 goals scored in the last five top flight encounters between the two sides, fans and neutrals alike could be in for an entertaining afternoon.
A win for Newcastle will push them back into the top half of the table while three points
for Hull will see them climb out of the bottom three, at least for a while.
Hull have played three away matches since their last game at the KC Stadium, which was a promising 2-0 victory against Everton.
