George Boyd returns to face the club he left in the summer when Hull travel to Turf Moor on Saturday. Boyd made 30 appearances for the Tigers last season and helped them reach the FA Cup final.

Last season’s FA Cup runners-up will be hoping to pull away from the relegation zone, as they sit just two points above it. Burnley, however, will be looking to close the gap – after 10 games they are five points from safety.

Burnley are yet to pick up a win in their return to the Premier League but will see the visit of out-of-form Hull City as a great opportunity to pick up three points. Hull have collected two wins in the league so far this season, coming against QPR on opening day and Crystal Palace at the start of October.

Burnley lead the head-to-head record 27-18 out of 56 matches.

At Turf Moor, the record is 16-7 in favour of Burnley.
