Preview: Burnley vs Hull City

Burnley are searching for their second victory of the league campaign when they host high-flyers Hull City at Turf Moor on Saturday.

The Clarets head into this home fixture looking to maintain their perfect Premier League record against the Tigers but will find the going a bit tough as the visitors have been in fine form since being promoted.

In their opening three encounters, Mike Phelan's side have managed victories against defending champions Leicester City and Swansea City respectively, whilst narrowly losing out to Manchester United courtesy of a stoppage-time winner from Marcus Rashford.

All six of Hull's new additions are expected to be fit and available for selection, whilst Phelan will assess Uruguayan forward Abel Hernandez, who returned from international duty late on Thursday.

Burnley have historically dominated this fixture with 31 wins as opposed Hull's 20, with 11 encounters ending in a stalemate. However, they come into the match on the back of the 3-0 defeat to Chelsea last time out.

Liverpool loanee Jon Flanagan is expected to be involved for Sean Dyche's charges, whilst Ashley Barnes is set to miss out due to a hamstring problem.
