Three points from their opening three games is about as good as Burnley would have expected while Hull have exceeded all expectation winning two out of three and can count themselves unlucky not to have picked up a point against Utd.
Home form is going to be key to Burnley’s survival hopes and it was their performances at Turf Moore that was the catalyst for their promotion, losing just two of their 24 home games in the Championship while conceding in just 11. It certainly can be a tough place to visit as Liverpool found out a few weeks ago.
Despite impressive performances under Phelan’s leadership so far, The Tigers will be up against it as when promoted sides have gone head-to-head in the last two season’s the home side have usually dominated proceedings going W8-D3-L1. Furthermore, The Clarets have dominated this fixture in recent years winning eight of the last 10 dating back to 2010/11. At 2.3 they look a favourable price to claim all three points again and for those correct score punters you’ll be interested to know that the last five Burnley wins have all been 1-0.
