The Tigers come into this match on the back of a 2-0 defeat against Manchester United, in the first semi-final leg of the EFL Cup.
Marco Silva’s men had acquitted themselves very well in the first half, absorbing all of the pressure from the home side.
It took until the second half for United to make the breakthrough, with Mkhitaryan heading back across goal to tee up Juan Mata (56).
Marouane Fellaini scored a decisive second in the 87th minute, giving United a crucial advantage heading into the second leg.
Hull Need A Run
The Tigers have found wins hard to come by, their attentions now turn back to the Premier League, after two cup games.
They are rock bottom of the Premier League, with just 13 points from 20 matches, with the January window open they will need players.
Injury means they were only able to field 16 players at Old Trafford, and with West Ham looking to swoop for Snodgrass reinforcements are needed.
This dismal run of form means that Hull head into this fixture as the underdogs, with Bournemouth in mixed form.
They will be looking to register a win for morale, a result will leave them level on points with Crystal Palace, who play West Ham.
Hull will be looking to improve on their last performance against Bournemouth, that saw them receive a 6-1 hiding at the Vitality Stadium.
FA Cup Hammering
Eddie Howe’s side come into this match on the back of a comprehensive defeat, losing against League One side Millwall.
Steve Morrison (26) opened the scoring for the Lions, despite missing a glaring opportunity earlier in the match.
It meant that the Cherries went into the first half 1-0 down, things only got worse for Eddie Howe’s side.
Shaun Cummings doubled Millwall’s advantage (49), just four minutes after the restart, with Shane Ferguson scoring a late third (90+3).
Eddie Howe will be ruing making eleven changes, with the Cherries the second best side from start to finish.
Cherries In Mixed Form
Bournemouth come into this match in mixed recent form, with two wins, a draw and three defeats in their last six matches.
Wins against Swansea and Leicester have been cancelled out by defeats against Chelsea, Southampton, Burnley and now Millwall.
