Comments:

Final league position 2014-15: 18th This result confirmed Hull City's relegation to the League Championship. On this final day of the season, they would have survived had they won this game and Newcastle United failed to beat West Ham United at St James' Park (they won 2-0). The Tigers had yet to win a Premier League game in the month of May (drawn four, lost nine). Excepting the Play-Offs in 2007-08, they haven't won a May game in the regular league season since 2004 against Bristol Rovers in League Division 3 - a total of 18 games. Since the previous season's FA Cup Semi-final, they had now failed to win in the ten games they had played on a Sunday (lost eight). The Tigers failed to score in 17 of their 38 Premier League games in this season. They had also failed to score in the final match of their four Premier League seasons, all of which had been at the KC Stadium. Hull City last beat Manchester United on 23 November 1974 with a 2-0 League Division Two victory at Boothferry Park. City boss and former Manchester United captain Steve Bruce had now failed to beat the Red Devils as a manager in 22 attempts.

Comments:

Final league position 2014-15: 4th This was the first Premier League meeting that Manchester United had not beaten Hull City having won all of the previous seven encounters. United finished outside the top three of the Premier League for the second season running. By keeping a clean sheet, the Red Devils brought an end to a run of eight Premier League games without keeping a clean sheet. They hadn’t had a nine game run since October 1999. Manchester United finished the season playing 44 games in total, their lowest number of games since 1958-59. The Red Devils had now won only two of last 18 Premier League away games played on a Sunday (drawn nine).
