Man City vs Hull City match preview, prediction with odds and betting tips. City to run riot against visiting Tigers.

Match Preview – 15:00 Kick-Off at the Etihad Stadium, Manchester

Man City have had to endure a tough run of fixtures lately, but the fact remains that 1 win in 6 from those games is a desperately poor return for Pep Guardiola. City were unlucky to lose their midweek clash with Premier League leaders Chelsea, but lose they did, making a home victory on Saturday against Hull City imperative. City have won just half of their home league games this season (7 from 14) and it’s their form at the Etihad that has extinguished any hopes they had of landing a Premier League title in 2016/17.

With 3 wins from their last 4 league games, Hull City have finally climbed out of the relegation places. 9 points from a possible 12 has seen them leapfrog Swansea City and Premier League survival suddenly looks a real possibility for Portuguese manager Marco Silva. Their midweek victory over Middlesbrough feels huge and that 4-2 win will give everyone at Hull a huge boost. Saturday’s trip to Man City doesn’t represent a realistic chance to extend that run of wins for Hull however – the Tigers have won just once away from home all season and that win came all the way back in August at Swansea.

On Boxing Day, Man City scored 3 times late on to beat Hull City 3-0 at the KCOM Stadium. Goals in the last 15 minutes from Toure, Iheanacho and a Curtis Davies own goal sealed an impressive win for Guardiola that day. Read our Man City V Hull City betting tips below.

Man City v Hull City Predictions

Hull City’s players will be on a high following their 4-2 win over relegation rivals Middlesbrough, but how much energy did their team expend in that crucial 6 pointer? Man City’s players will be smarting following another failure to beat a top of the table competitor and they will be desperate to exercise some demons against Hull. Everything points to a comfortable home win at the Etihad.

The bookies echo my feelings about the game and it’s a tricky fixture to find some value for. I do like the look of Bet365’s offer of 9/4 for the game to have over 2.5 goals and both teams NOT to score. They also offer odds of 9/4 for Sergio Aguero to score first and Man City to win. The Argentinean striker has hit 4 goals in his last 5 games.
