Burnley vs Newcastle Preview

  • Date – Saturday, May 04, 2024
  • Kick-off Time – 03:00 pm GMT
  • Venue – Turf Moor

Newcastle United will be facing relegation-threatened Burnley in the Premier League on Saturday afternoon at Turf Moor. The Clarets will be looking for a win to take themselves further away from the relegation zone as they are sitting 19th in the league standings.

Eddie Howe’s side has been brilliant in front of the goal this season, and they confirmed Sheffield United’s relegation to the second tier of English football with a thumping 5-1 win last weekend. A win for Newcastle this weekend will get them back in the running for European football.

They will then take on Burnley, who are languishing at the bottom of the Premier League table. The Clarets have struggled in front of goal with 38 goals in 35 games and are two points behind Nottingham Forest who are just outside of the danger zone. Vincent Kompany’s side are second from bottom in the league table and have a slim chance of staying in the top division of English football for next season as well. Despite their unconvincing form this campaign, they have lost only one of their last eight league games.

The Clarets have a long list of injuries in their ranks as Luca Koleosho, Aaron Ramsey, Nathan Redmond, Ameen Al-Dakhil, and Jordan Beyer are all sidelined with injuries. They did not pick any fresh injuries against Manchester United last time out and will be aiming to pick three points at home.

On the other hand, Newcastle’s infirmary includes players like Sven Botman, Jamaal Lascelles (both ACL), Joe Willock, Matt Targett (both Achilles), Lewis Miley (back), Nick Pope (shoulder), Kieran Trippier (calf), Miguel Almiron (knee) and Joelinton (thigh) who all remain unavailable for selection.

Valentino Livramento will be assessed before the game who has been operating in the right-back position in the absence of Kieran Trippier.

The Magpies are certainly the heavy favorites coming into this fixture even though they have slipped down to seventh in the standings just below the European qualification zone. But they have been impressive in front of goal, scoring 74 goals in 34 games and are coming off a thumping 5-1 win over Sheffield United.

Meanwhile, relegation-threatened Burnley have struggled to gather any consistent form this season. They have been pretty quiet in front of goal, scoring just 38 goals in 35 games. Defensively they have been worse than most Premier League sides, conceding 70 goals and keeping only two clean sheets.

Predicted Score: Burnley 2-1 Newcastle
