Newcastle United vs Burnley Match Preview
Two teams aiming to pull clear of the relegation battle go head-to-head on Tyneside, with Burnley trying to make it five consecutive Premier League away games unbeaten.
Since the Christmas festivities were over and done with, the Clarets have looked much more like the side that finished seventh last season and qualified for the Europa League.
Going into Saturday’s home match against Tottenham (result not known at the time of writing) Burnley had won four and drawn the other three of their latest seven league fixtures.
But that run was still not enough to put them any more than three points above the relegation zone as other clubs have also improved – one of them being Newcastle.
The Magpies beat Cardiff emphatically and Manchester City highly commendably at home last month, while they ran Tottenham close at Wembley and should really have hung on for a victory away to Wolves when denied by a controversial stoppage-time equaliser.
Rafael Benitez’s side will have been expected to win at home to an all-but-relegated Huddersfield on Saturday, which looked just the kind of fixture to boost confidence further.
However, Newcastle’s odds look short enough for this match and with little to choose between they and Burnley on the season as a whole, we will back the spoils to be shared in the 100th league fixture between these clubs.
