Hull City face Middlesbrough at the KCOM Stadium today and will be looking to get some more points on the board. Here is a predicted starting XI-

GK- David Marshall- He has been City’s number one this season and will keep his place once again.

RB- Eric Lichaj- The summer recruit from Nottingham Forest has slotted in nicely into the back four since his move.

CB- Reece Burke- Nigel Adkins has a choice to make between Burke, Jordy de Wijs and Angus MacDonald but I think he will go for Burke against Boro.

CB- Tommy Elphick- He was brought in on loan from Aston Villa to tighten up the defence.

LB- Stephen Kingsley- The Scottish international is enjoying his run in the team this season.

RM- Jarrod Bowen- The 21-year-old has scored twice in the league so far and will be looking to add to his tally.

CM- Markus Henriksen- He is the captain of the Tigers now and will keep his central midfield position for the Boro game.

CM- Jackson Irvine- He is likely to slot in alongside Markus Henriksen with Daniel Batty still ruled out with injury.

LM- Todd Kane- Adkins seems to be going for Kane at left midfield over the likes of Kamil Grosicki and David Milinkovic. The Chelsea loanee has impressed since joining the club over the summer.

ST- Chris Martin- The Derby County loanee will be hoping he can get his first goal for Hull today.

ST- Frazier Campbell- The 31-year-old has started this season well and has chipped in with two goals so far.
