Burnley

Here is how Burnley and Hull City will line-up for this afternoon’s match:

Burnley starting XI: Heaton, Ward, Shackell, Duff, Trippier, Boyd, Jones, Marney, Arfield, Ings, Barnes

Burnley subs: Gilks, Sordell, Mee, Kightly, Chalobah, Keane, Jutkiewicz

Hull starting XI: Harper, Chester, Davies, McShane, Elmohamady, Huddlestone, Brady, Livermore, Diame, Aluko, Hernandez

Hull subs: Jakupovic, Rosenior, Meyler, Ramirez, Robertson, Quinn, Ben Arfa

Burnley host Hull City this afternoon in a match Sean Dyche’s team will be desperate to win.

Currently bottom of the Premier League table with just four points from their opening 10 games, Burnley must ensure they get some wins under their belt if they do not want to be cast adrift by Christmas.

Hull are currently 14th with 11 points and they will prove to be a tough test for the recently promoted side. That said, Steve Bruce’s side have won just one of their last 10 away matches in the league, a record which will give hope to Burnley; especially when you consider the Tigers have not scored in their last two games.

With Nikica Jelavic injured, Abel Hernandez has struggled to maintain his fine early form and Dyche will know if he can keep the £10million man quiet his side could sneak this one.
