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

3. Michael Carrick vs Tom Huddlestone

In Form Carrick - Setting Up Goals Seamlessly

The centre of the park will see two former Spurs midfielders go head-to-head. For United, Michael Carrick’s return from injury has been timely. The Englishman has not only provided cover in defence, where they are still short on numbers, but has also ensured that the Red Devils don’t miss Daley Blind, whose injury rules him out for the next few weeks at least. Calm and composed in possession, Carrick has provided the perfect platform for the attack while also offering cover for the defence.

For Hull, Tom Huddlestone has been an important player ever since his move from Spurs. The central midfielder’s ability to spread the play and help out in attack has been an integral part of the way the Tigers play. Whoever comes on top in this battle of deep-lying creators, will decide which side has control of the game.
