Because of this, but also you a better form, which we have already mentioned, in the camp of Middlesbrough and now certainly expect a favorable outcome of the match with Hull, especially as guests at Riverside come quite exhausted after a very tough matches in the League Cup. On the other hand, by coach Karanka can boast that in the last five rounds suffered only one defeat, and home of the current leader Chelsea, while in that period, in addition to a home win over Bournemouth typed and three away draws, against extremely serious rivals, Arsenal, Manchester City and reigning champion Leicester.
Of course it’s all very ohabrujuće for Middlesbrough football players before the championship, especially since in addition to very tough schedule and remained above the relegation zone, with this difference with the other teams very little but make them just because now very much welcome win over direct rivals Hull. As for the composition, Karanka will field probably send the same 11 players as in the last round against Leicester, while more should be added that are still out only from before injured defenders Husband, Ayala and Friend.
Probable lineups Middlesbrough: Valdes – Barragan, Chambers, Gibson, Fabio – de Roon, Clayton, Forshaw – Traore, Ramirez – Negredo
As for the team of Hull, and they are the last two home meetings in the Premier League won as many as four points, slavivši over Southampton and remiziravši against West Bromwich, or that of coach Phelan in the last seven games have managed to win just one more point, not no wonder that at the moment are in the relegation zone, and with two points more than Swanseaja and three compared to last Sunderland. Otherwise, this returnee to the elite rank had a fantastic start to the season, because in the first two rounds celebrated at home against Leicester and away to Swanseaja, but later fell completely in shape and only recently slowly recovering.
So after these two quite good performances in the domestic championship, during the last week in the League Cup at home was better than the second division Newcastle, though only after a penalty, which they also won and the semifinals, where they will soon be facing two very severe clashes with favored Manchester United. But before that you have to do better and this is extremely busy schedule in the Premier League, which again will not be easy as they are now because of injuries sidelined goalkeeper McGregor, defenders Odubajo and Bruce, midfielder Mason and forwards Hernandez, Keane and Maloney, while against Boro eligible to play no suspended Mbokani.
Probable lineups Hull: Marshall – Elmohamady, Dawson, Davies, Robertson – Snodgrass, Livermore, Meyler, Clucas -Henriksen – Diomande
