Hull

Hull welcome Burnley to the KCOM this Saturday, with Hull looking to bounce back from their disappointing result against Arsenal.

The Tigers endured a disappointing result at the Emirates, as they lost 2-0 against a fortuitous Gunners side.

Alexis Sanchez opened the scoring in the 34th minute, with replays showing that the ball went in off the Chilean's hand.

Hull continued to press, with Niasse narrowly missing a great chance on goal after great work from Markovic.

To add insult to injury Sam Clucas saw red in the 91st minute, with the defender blocking Perez header with his hand.

Sanchez stepped up to convert the penalty (90+3), to give Arsenal a fortunate three points.

Spirit In The Camp

They currently sit 18th in the Premier League table, with only Crystal Palace and Sunderland below them.

The main aim of the season will be to remain in the top flight, if they can maintain their form of late they will have a great chance.

Ten More Points

It was an excellent performance from the non-leaguers, who were able to keep Premier League side Burnley quiet.

Sean Raggett (89) headed past Tom Heaton late on in the match, to spark Euphoric scenes at Turf Moor.

It is a humiliating defeat for the Clarets, who conspired to lose to a side 81 places below them in the league.

Survival All But Assured

With 30 points they are in 12th position, and nine above the relegation zone with 13 games to go.
