Burnley vs Newcastle Predictions

  • Newcastle have won five of their last seven games, only failing to do so against the two title chasers.
  • Burnley played a gruelling game at Aston Villa on Thursday and are winless in three (D1, L2).
  • The Clarets have scored in each of their last four home games, Newcastle have scored at least twice in three of their last four wins.
  • Bruno Guimaraes has four goals in his last six games.

Newcastle tough opponents for desperate Clarets

Burnley sit in 17th place in the Premier League table ahead of the visit of Newcastle in the final round of fixtures, with only goal difference separating them from Leeds United in the final relegation spot.

The Clarets played on Thursday and did manage a handy point at Aston Villa to move out of the danger zone going into their last game, but they know anything other than a win could see their six-year stay among England’s elite come to an end as they must match or better Leeds’ result at Brentford.

Newcastle sit comfortably in mid-table but they haven’t particularly eased off since securing survival themselves and could still claim a top 10 finish with a win.

Magpies can have a say in relegation scrap

Burnley aren’t blessed with a deep squad and as such most, if not all, of the players who started at Villa Park could start again on Sunday.

Newcastle go into this game in great form with five wins in their last seven games. They did lose the other two, but those games were against title chasers Liverpool and Manchester City and they responded to those back-to-back defeats by claiming a 2-0 win over Arsenal.

Clarets caretaker boss Mike Jackson has impressed since replacing the sacked Sean Dyche and he will no doubt have his players fired up for this game, but given Newcastle’s form and the fact they have played with plenty of freedom and confidence since they pulled away from danger the big price on an away win has caught my eye for the main bet.

Goals at both ends has potential

In terms of a correct score bet, a 2-1 win for the visitors looks a to have a chance. The Magpies have scored at least twice in three of their last four wins and in each of their last three road victories. When Newcastle win, they usually come alongside clean sheets (four of their last five have) but as Burnley have to go all out in this game – particularly if they fall behinds – I am expecting both teams to net.

Bruno Guimaraes has been Newcastle’s star performer since his mid-season arrival from Lyon and I’m backing him to grab a goal in the final round of fixtures. The Brazilian has managed either a goal or an assist in four of his last six games – only failing to do so against City and Liverpool – with four goals in total during that period.

Burnley predicted lineup: Pope, Collins, Tarkowski, Long, Roberts, Brownhill, Cork, McNeil, Taylor, Cornet, Barnes

Newcastle United predicted lineup: Dubravka, Trippier, Lascelles, Burn, Targett, Longstaff, Guimaraes, Joelinton, Almiron, Wilson, Saint-Maximin
