Steve Bruce leads the Tigers into the top flight with a side of familiar faces...
Has it been a busy summer for the Tigers boss? He's gone for experience and brought in Curtis Davies (from Birmingham), Ahmed Elmohamady (Sunderland), Allan McGregor (Besiktas), George Boyd (Peterborough), Maynard Figueroa (Wigan), Steve Harper (released by Newcastle) and Danny Graham (loan from Sunderland). They also signed Ivory Coast forward Yannick Sagbo from French club Evian. Bruce's sides always tend to take on his battling characteristics.
Who's their star man? Ahmed Elmohamady was Hull's player of the year last season and having turned his loan into a permanent deal he'll be looking to put his top-flight experience to good use.
Any interesting facts and figures? 39,172 days - that's how long it'll be on Boxing Day since United and Hull first met - the Reds winning 1-0 at Anlaby Road in front of 14,000 fans. For the record, that's 107 years, two months and 29 days.
