One of the games of the weekend in the Premier League this weekend will be the relegation battle between Hull City and Burnley at the KC Stadim on Saturday afternoon. Hull looked all but doomed a few weeks ago but back to back wns against Crystal Palace and Liverpool have left Hull sitting just above the relegation zone. Hull manager Steve Bruce knows his side have a serious battle on their hands to stay up but they simply must win this game against Burnley on Saturday. With Robbie Brady , elomandy and Hernandez along with Meyler and Huddlestone in midfield the Tigers will be pressing for a win that could take them clear of the drop zone depending on how results go.
A loss for Burnley on Saturday will more or less relegate them depending on results elsewhere. All Burnley can do to try to survive is win their last three games, even if they manage that I personally dont think it will be enough to survive but the least Burnley can do is give themselves a fighting chance. Having failed to score in their last six games it is pretty obvious where the problems are for Burnley,they have lost their last four games 1-0 so their defence has been doing their job but have been getting no help from Burnleys front ment. Ings, Vokes and Boyd must find a way to score and win a game or Burnley will be going back to the Championship in a couple of weeks.
This one looks to be a defensive struggle and I am taking the unders because of it. I wouldnt be surprised if Hull nicks a 1-0 here to make it five 1-0 losses in a row for Burnley but I will be on the unders either way.
