Our football match prediction:
Despite producing a fine display against Arsenal at Emirates Stadium, Hull City eventually suffered a 2-0 loss to Arsene Wenger’s troops on Matchday 25. The Tigers sit in 18th place in the standings ahead of the visit of Burnley, but a win over Sean Dyche’s troops could see the hosts escape the relegation zone. January signings have already adapted to the new surroundings and seeing that Hull City have been producing good performances in the English top flight of late, we predict that they will pick up all three points from Saturday’s football match. Burnley suffered a shocking 1-0 loss to Lincoln City in the 5th round of the FA Cup at the weekend and considering that the Clarets have been struggling on the travels this season, they are unlikely to spoil Hull City’s party at KCOM Stadium. A man to watch in the home team will be new signing Lazar Markovic, who is likely to pose a big threat for the opposition back-line.

Highlighted Team (Burnley):
Burnley were one of the founding members of the Football League back in 1888. The Clarets did remarkably well to win the FA Cup trophy back in 1914 and the club owners have been trying to bring glory days back to Turf Moor ever since. Burnley defeated Liverpool in the 1913/1914 FA Cup final and, no doubt, this is regarded as the greatest achievement in the club’s history. The Clarets finished the 2015/2016 Championship campaign in top position in the standings and, as a result, they will participate in the English Premier League in the 2016/2017 season. Burnley play their home games at Turf Moor and the capacity of the stadium is 21,401. The Clarets have won two Community Shield trophies so far, in 1960 and 1973, but they have yet to clinch the Premier League title. Claret is the dominant colour of the team’s home shirts.
