Chris Green from Huddersfield is back and he says: "Hull have taken me by surprise; they have performed magnificently well so far, preventing Man City from taking control of the game. The Tigers have had quite a couple of good chances themselves, and if they keep on troubling City's defence, we could be in for a huge shock. However, what they must not do is become complacent; Manchester City have a habit of taking advantage of their opponents' mistakes, and if the Tigers switch off and allow City to take control, all their hard work so far will come down to nothing."
Hull have done really well as mentioned and Sky Bet have cut their odds for victory to 10s. City have eased to 2/5 with the draw a 5/2 chance. The Half-Time Price Boosts have Manchester City to win 3-0 at 11/1, Hull to win 2-1 at 50/1, Sergio Aguero to score next at 4/1 and finally Danny Graham to score next at 11/1.

Pre-match: Matija Nastasic returns to the Manchester City defence to face Hull. The Serbian, now recovered from an ankle problem, replaces Javi Garcia in central defence while Aleksandar Kolarov comes in for Gael Clichy at left-back. Hull make one enforced change to their line-up with on-loan striker Danny Graham replacing the suspended Yannick Sagbo.
Andrew Robb says: "As a die hard Kopite I'm hoping Hull can 'Do a Cardiff' over the blue half of Manchester. Liverpool looking good so far in opening 2 games. I think it could be a New 3 horse race for the title this year with Liverpool, Chelsea and Spurs.
Michael Brieley says: "Usually (as a United fan) - I'd love nothing more than dropped points at home for City. However, 3 weeks in, and with Silva as my Fantasy Football captain, and Dzeko leading my forward line too, I'd absolutely love the EPL's first 10 goal victory, to cement my claim at the top of our private league. Uhhh, no offence Tigers. Real prediction: 4-0 City. Hart as a lot to prove following Pellegrini's words..."
Hull City look right up against it according to the betting with Sky Bet going 16/1 for the away win. City are 1/6 ahead of kick off and the draw is 7/1.
Joe Canavan says: "I feel Hull may enjoy the role of the underdogs, trying to counter City's pressure, but I have to go for a 3-0 win to Man City."
Chris Green from Huddersfield says: "As a Manchester United fan, I really hope the Tigers can shock us all and produce the most unlikeliest of results, but they'll have to perform 'extremely' well if they are to pull this off because Manchester City's home record is very good. As we all know, you can never rule out the chances of a shock happening; this is the reason why we love the beautiful game. However, Hull must stay solid at the back from first whistle to last, or City will finish them off before we've even reached half-time."
And the Hull line-up: McGregor, Elmohamady, Chester, Davies, Figueroa, Livermore, Huddlestone, Koren, Aluko, Brady, Graham. Subs: Rosenior, Bruce, Meyler, McShane, Boyd, Harper, Quinn.
Here is the Man City team: Hart, Zabaleta, Nastasic, Lescott, Kolarov, Toure, Fernandinho, Jesus Navas, Aguero, Silva, Dzeko. Subs: Milner, Nasri, Negredo, Javi Garcia, Clichy, Pantilimon, Jovetic.
Firstly a bit of betting news from Sky Bet with a couple of Price Boosts. Edin Dzeko to score first and Man City to win 3-1 is now 33/1 while David Silva to score first and Man City to win 2-1 is a 55/1 chance. Good luck with your punting!
