The Bonus Points
In addition to opening the scoring against Hull City, the Belgian produced five dribbles and 10 recoveries.
Robert Snodgrass (£5.6m) earned two bonus points, thanks to a score of 33 in the BPS.
The Scottish midfielder netted a last-gasp equaliser for Hull and made eight recoveries from his role on the right flank.
Dean Marney (£4.5m) collected a single bonus point. Having supplied the assist for Defour’s strike, he also produced four clearances, blocks and interceptions (CBI) to register 22 in the BPS.
The ICT Index
Snodgrass was ranked first in the ICT Index at Turf Moor with a score of 10.7.
The Hull playmaker registered two attempts on target and as many key passes in addition to his late strike. He also completed more passes in the final third (18) than any player in the match.
Defour and Marney completed the top three, earning 9.6 and 6.2 in the ICT Index.
The former completed three of his four crosses and created two scoring opportunities for Sean Dyche’s side, as well as finding the net.
Marney registered two of his three attempts from inside the box, though all of his efforts missed the target.
The Clarets' George Boyd (£5.4m) was placed first for ICT Threat, producing three attempts on goal and one effort on target. He was also joint-top for touches inside the opposition box (four) for the home side.
The Scout Notes
Despite an influx of new arrivals over the final few days of the transfer window, Hull caretaker manager Mike Phelan was reluctant to make alterations.
He named an unchanged line-up from the side that narrowly lost to Manchester United.
Snodgrass is emerging as the Tigers' star man, with two goals this season. But the next three fixtures against Arsenal (H), Liverpool (A) and Chelsea (H) deters investment.
Dyche also remained loyal to his regulars from the opening three Gameweeks.
