Venue: The KC

Kick-Off Time: 15:00 GMT

Referee: Alan Wiley

In ways, Hull City will be delighted to be playing us at this stage of the season. Their Premier League status isn’t confirmed yet, but they could ease the nerves if they beat United at The KC as no matter what the results elsewhere, Hull would survive.

United are facing into this game with one eye, or maybe even two on the Champions League final next week, and Ferguson has already stated that it will be a heavily weakened side to face Hull.

Rio Ferdinand looks a certain starter as the Englishman has to prove his fitness to Fergie in order to be able to play in Rome next Wednesday. Another big name who may well play 45 minutes is Cristiano Ronaldo. The Portuguese winger has been in good form of late and sees himself joint top scorer in the League alongside Nicholas Anelka of Chelsea, so he may be given game time to keep his form up, and to try and nick ahead of Nick for the Golden Boot.

My team to start the game is;



I fancy Ronaldo to play 45 minutes on Sunday, and Gibson to come into the midfield alongside Fletcher who I’m sure will play due to his suspension for the Champions League final.
