Tip Reasoning

  • Newcastle have lost just one of their last six meetings with Burnley.
  • Burnley have won only one of their last eight home league assignments.
  • Newcastle have lost just one of their last five Premier League games.
  • Burnley have drawn 1-1 in four of their last five home matches.

Burnley not quite safe yet

Burnley still have work to do to cement their Premier League status following a poor run of just two wins from 12 assignments, though a win for the Clarets against fellow relegation candidates Newcastle would be a massive step towards safety.

Sean Dyche was livid after his team threw away a two-goal lead and eventually lost at struggling Southampton last weekend, and Burnley’s boss will be demanding a response from his players when the Magpies visit Lancashire on Saturday.

Wins have been very difficult to come by at Turf Moor for the Clarets however, and Burnley have won only one of their last eight fixtures on home soil since January.

Newcastle ready to roll up their sleeves

17th placed Newcastle have lost just once in their last five fixtures, and the Magpies displayed their willingness to scrap for survival last week when they secured a comeback point last on against Tottenham Hotspur.

United mustered an impressive 22 attempts to Spurs’ 11 at St. James’ Park and their 85th minute equalizer from Joseph Willock was a richly deserved leveller.

The late equalizer earned Newcastle their fourth draw in five matches, and the next step for Steve Bruce’s men is to turn single points into threes.

Newcastle to avoid defeat?

Newcastle’s date with Burnley has the makings of a season-defining fixture for the Magpies, though their head-to-head record against the Clarets should allow them to travel to Turf Moor with confidence.

United have lost just one of their last six encounters with Burnley, and one of Newcastle’s seven Premier League victories this term was secured against the Lancashire outfit back in October.

Burnley haven’t enjoyed many home comforts this year, winning just once in their last eight skirmishes on their own patch, and with Newcastle’s fine record against the Clarets considered, the Magpies are worth backing in the double chance market on Sunday.

Our 1-1 correct score prediction tips the sides to leave with an equal share of the bounty however. Burnley finished level at 1-1 in four of their last five runouts at Turf Moor, and their clash with a Newcastle team developing a nasty drawing habit could play out along similar lines.

Burnley injuries and team news

Robbie Brady and Ashley Barnes have been ruled out for Burnley, while Kevin Long and Erik Pieters are also rated as doubtful for the Clarets. Charlie Taylor is ready to start at left back having returned against Southampton last week.

Newcastle injuries and team news

Ryan Fraser, Federico Fernandez and Andy Carroll are all expected to miss out for Newcastle this weekend, while Isaac Hayden and Federico Fernandez are also absent.

Callum Wilson is back in full training however, and the key centre-forward will hope to make the squad.
