Manchester United vs Hull City – 3 Key Player Duels That Will Decide The Result

2. Ahmed Elmohamady vs Ashley Young

One of the first teams to regularly implement the three at the back system over the last few years have been Hull. One of the main reasons why they have been able to be so successful with the system, while others have failed has been their wing backs. In Elmohamady, Steve Bruce has the perfect wing back. Not only can the Egyptian remain solid and resolute at the back, he has been one of the best in the League, in terms of going forward and helping out in attack.

Injuries to Luke Shaw and Daley Blind means that Ashley Young will take his place as the left wing back for United. Against Arsenal, Young came on with great effect and has, throughout pre-season shown just how effective he can be, even when deployed as a wing back. If the England international can curb the threat of Elmohamady then half the job will already be done, but if the Egyptian can get the better of Young, expect the right flank to be the visitor’s main source of attack.
