Big top of the table clash Friday night. Depending on the Brighton and Burnley game today, could be another chance to go top on a Friday night.

Bradley Johnson is suspended. Not been at his best the last couple of games, so a good chance for Hendrick or Bryson to put pressure on his position.

Expect a battle, and Huddlestone and Livermore will be physical in the middle so could miss Johnson. Be interesting what midfield Clement picks.

Draw between Brighton and Burnley, so for the second Friday might TV game in a row, we have the chance to go top.

Hopefully this one goes better.

For me it's Thorne, Butterfield and one of Hendrick or Bryson.

I think Bryson will get the nod tomorrow. Big opportunity if he does with his first start since the opening day.

Michael Dawson and Andy Robertson will miss the game for Hull, meaning a reshuffle at the back for them.

Robertson will be a miss for then, they are also missing Meyler who has been inspirational for them this season.

I'd play Bryson now if he's fully fit, need his energy in there with Johnson missing.

I'd've tempted to go old school, Thorne, Hendrick and Bryson. A bit more energy and physical presence for what I expect to be a battle in midfield.

Think that would be a defensive move. Butterfield is the creative player in the middle, and he's now starting to grow I to that role. I'm sure he will play.

Couldn't grumble at a draw. Would like to nick a win though.
