Preview: Manchester City vs.Hull City

Sports Mole previews Saturday's early kickoff between Manchester City and Hull City.

Manchester City welcome Premier League newcomers Hull City to the Etihad Stadium on Saturday afternoon.

Manuel Pellegrini's men will be looking to bounce back from last weekend's dramatic defeat to another promoted side, Cardiff City.

Hull, meanwhile, are on an upward curve. They managed their first win of the season against Norwich City last week, and after resting several players for Tuesday's League Cup win over Leyton Orient, Steve Bruce should have a fresh squad to choose from.
