Premier League

Hull City v Manchester City

Team news: David Meyler suffered a back injury during the midweek Capital One Cup defeat to West Brom and is a major doubt. Steve Bruce is expected to revert to the XI that started against Newcastle a week ago, meaning Hatem Ben Arfa returns to the bench.

Bradford City v Port Vale

Team news: Alan Sheehan returns from suspension, while Matty Dolan is also back after a hip problem. Stephen Darby could return after missing his first game in 86 during midweek with a tight groin but James Hanson is still out and unlikely to return for another fortnight.
