In the space of a few days, Manchester City have exited two competitions, defeats at the hands of Wigan and Barcelona respectively putting paid to any chances Manuel Pellegrini’s men had of securing a historic quadruple.
City must now focus all of their attention on landing the Premier League title and although they’re currently nine points adrift of leaders Chelsea, their three games in hand mean their fate in the battle for top spot, is in their own hands.
Nevertheless, there’s little margin for error and after a bad week for the Eastlands outfit, some bold punters might fancy Hull to compound their misery by defeating them at the KC Stadium, an outcome William Hill rate at 6/1.
Pellegrini’s charges however, could be galvanised by their back-to-back defeats and they can justify the 4/7 favouritism given to them by BetVictor.
The Tigers’ resilience still suggests a close encounter, especially as City are far stronger at home than on the road and a case can be made for an away success by one at 11/4 via Ladbrokes.
Draw/Man City in HT/FT betting – 18/5 (BetVictor)
