Home form will be key for Hull City's Premier League survival

Ahmed Elmohamady and the rest of the Hull City side will need to buckle down at home for the remainder of the season if they're to avoid relegation.

Steve Bruce and his Hull City side have spent the past week on a warm-weather training camp in Portugal, making the most of a free weekend that came with a third-round exit from the FA Cup. Under the Algarve sun, they have spent additional time on the training pitches and nursed countless injured bodies back to fitness.

Those five nights away were designed to prepare City for all that lies in store between now and May 24, to focus minds on the task at hand. Premier League survival is on the line...

Prem Forecaster: United won't finish top four, City faces must-win vs. CFC

Manchester United faces an uphill climb to finish in the top four and secure a Champions League spot.
Manchester United faces an uphill climb to finish in the top four and secure a Champions League spot.

Welcome to the second edition of Insider's Premier League Forecaster, an end-of-season table projection fueled by ESPN's Soccer Power Index (SPI), a regression-based algorithm designed to predict soccer matches. SPI simulates the remainder of the season 10,000 times, using the odds of each projected match, with the end result presented in the table below.

If you missed the inaugural version two weeks ago, click here for a primer and the previous table. (Note: The previous table forecast was incorrect due to a projection error. Chelsea, not Manchester City, should have been the projected favorite to win the league leading up to matches Jan. 10.)

With a lull in Premier League action last week due to FA Cup and Capital One Cup matches, in this edition we break down table risers and fallers over the past few weeks and preview what promises to be one of the most important matches of the season: Chelsea versus Manchester City on Saturday.

Here's a look at the latest forecast for all 20 Prem teams, along with breakdowns of the title, Champions League and relegation battles.

Nice get English FA backing over Hatem Ben Arfa FIFA case

Hatem Ben Arfa has been forced to wait until he is cleared to play.

Nice have shared a new Football Association statement supporting their case to be allowed to register recent signing Hatem Ben Arfa.

Ben Arfa, 27, capped 13 times by France, is yet to feature for his new side due to article 5.3 of FIFA's transfer regulations, which prevents players representing three clubs in the same season.

The Frenchman spent time on loan at Hull this season and also appeared for Newcastle's under-21 team, a match FIFA indicated last week "must be considered as official" and...

Mounting Hull City injuries add to club's survival struggle

Second-half goals from Andy Carroll, Morgan Amalfitano and Stewart Downing saw the Hammers take all three points against a struggling Hull side at Upton Park.

Hull City jetted off to Portugal for a warm-weather camp on Thursday as the temperatures dropped below freezing in East Yorkshire. Manager Steve Bruce, though, must have considered Lourdes. That famous sanctuary for the sick would be more fitting as a free weekend looms on the Tigers' calendar. Bruce must wonder where it will all end after the latest damaging chapter of City's season and pray it is not in the Championship. A 3-0 loss at West Ham United was bad enough, but the loss of defenders...

Tom Ince to cost Hull £2.3m after compensation with Blackpool agreed

Minutes have come few and far between for Tom Ince this season at Hull City.
Tom Ince signed a two-year deal in the summer.

Hull will pay up to 2.3 million pounds for Tom Ince after they reached a compensation agreement with Blackpool over the winger.

Ince, 22, joined the Tigers during the summer after his deal with the Seasiders expired but, due to his age, Blackpool were entitled to recoup a fee for the England Under-21 international.

The two clubs were understood to be attending a tribunal last week in order to determine how much Ince would cost Hull and Blackpool confirmed on their official Twitter feed that a subsequent...
