Burnley vs Newcastle United Prediction & Match Preview

0

BURNLEY will be bidding to boost their Premier League survival hopes by banking three points against Newcastle United at Turf Moor on Saturday afternoon.

The Clarets looked destined for the drop just a couple of months ago but they have since set the wheels in motion for an unexpected great escape.

Last time out, Vincent Kompany’s side put another point on the board by scoring a late equaliser to earn a 1-1 draw away at Manchester United.

That Old Trafford stalemate means Burnley are just two points adrift of safety with three games to go, the first of which comes against Newcastle this weekend.

After slumping to a 2-0 loss at Crystal Palace last midweek, the Magpies got their bid for a top six finish back on track with a 5-1 savaging of Sheffield United last Saturday.

As such, Eddie Howe’s side remain in seventh spot in the standings, just one point behind sixth-placed Man United.

Despite losing just one of their last eight Premier League games, Burnley are big outsiders at 5/2 (UniBet) while the draw is also deemed unlikely at 3/1 (William Hill).

Newcastle, who have lost three of their last four Premier League away games, are odds-on 19/20 favourites on Bet 365.

Newcastle certainly have the upper hand in recent encounters between the pair, having pocketed maximum points from each of the previous five Premier League meetings.

Burnley’s last league win over Newcastle came way back in 2019, with Chris Wood’s second-half goal proving decisive.

Alexander Isak’s brace against Sheffield United means he is now only two goals behind Premier League top-scorer Erling Haaland.

The Scandinavian sharpshooter stands out at 10/11 on PaddyPower to breach a Burnley backline that have just two top-flight clean sheets to their name this term.

Jacob Bruun Larsen has aided Burnley’s survival mission with three goals in his last seven appearances. The Danish winger is as big as 11/4 (Bet 365) to notch against Newcastle.

Vincent Kompany could choose to name an unchanged starting XI after his team’s deserved 1-1 draw with Man United.

Newcastle have an extremely busy treatment room at present so Eddie Howe is unlikely to make too many changes at Turf Moor.

Burnley: Muric; Assignon, O’Shea, Esteve, Vitinho; Odobert Cullen, Berge, Larsen; Foster, Fofana

Newcastle: Dubravka; Livramento, Krafth, Schar, Burn; Longstaff, Guimaraes, Anderson; Murphy, Isak, Gordon
.

Dan Burn has committed at least two fouls in three of his last five Premier League outings and he looks overpriced for another 2+ here at 6/4 on PaddyPower.

The Magpies lumbering left-back has faced his fair share of criticism this season and he could be set for another difficult afternoon given the pace and flair that Burnley possess in wide areas.
