Burnley beat Hull 1-0 in EPL

Burnley manager Sean Dyche accepted Hull City's late equaliser in a 1-1 Premier League draw at Turf Moor on Saturday represented the "reality of football", with Robert Snodgrass' injury-time free-kick earning his side a point.

But Robert Snodgrass scored his sixth goal of the season, after his hat-trick for Scotland during the worldwide break, in the dying minutes with a free-kick.

In a match of few goal-scoring opportunities, Stephen Defour was able to open the scoring for Burnley, as he picked the ball up 30 yards out and slotted it into the bottom corner in the 72nd minute.

Hernandez and Ahmed Elmohamady missed Hull chances to draw level as the visitors piled on the pressure before Snodgrass silenced the home crowd.

Hull had been banging on the door and had hit the woodwork in both halves, although the first half was something of a frustrating deadlock, as both sides tried to play from deep and gave very little away.

Dyche's men led through Steven Defour's strike from long range and looked set to close out back-to-back wins at home after their previous victory against Liverpool.

The home side grew into the occasion as the half wore on, but nearly fell behind in the final minute as Snodgrass fed Meyler, whose low effort had the beating of Heaton but glanced off the far post and behind.

The Tigers continued to pose a threat and Heaton had to tip Snodgrass' volley behind before Burnley struck with 18 minutes remaining. The club's record signing Ryan Mason has to settle for a place on the bench.

Pep Guardiola, José Mourinho (and indeed Antonio Conte at Chelsea) have made 100% starts to the new Premier League season, but despite their nominations, they have been beaten to the punch by Hull City interim manager Mike Phelan. - Hull City are the first Premier League team to name an unchanged line-up for the opening four games since Newcastle in 2010-11.
