Newcastle vs Burnley Match Previews
The Magpies suffered two away defeats in a row in their last five league matches, the latest a 1-0 loss to Crystal Palace. Before that, Newcastle was mauled 4-0 at Arsenal.
It was the fourth time in their last five league matches that Newcastle went goalless. They earlier had a 0-0 draw against visiting Norwich City. Their only win was 1-0 over visiting Chelsea, whilst the other game had a 2-2 result at Everton.
As they attempt to regroup at home, Newcastle tries to improve on their 14th-place spot in the table. Steve Bruce’s side are six points behind Burnley, who are 10th with 37 points after 27 matches so far. Burnley is tied on points with ninth-placed Arsenal and lead 11th-placed Everton by one point.
AIMING FOR ANOTHER WIN
The Clarets’ winning run could stretch to three if they are victorious over Newcastle. They won back-to-back, 2-1 at Southampton and 3-0 over visiting AFC Bournemouth. Sean Dyche’s men won four of their last league games, their other two wins earlier were 2-1 at home over Leicester City and 2-0 at Manchester United. Their five-game span had alone draw, 0-0 against visiting Arsenal.
Riding high on that two-match run and being unbeaten in their last five league outings, Burnley carries a load of confidence when they visit Newcastle.
The last time they crossed paths was in December last year when Burnley won 1-0 over Newcastle at Turf Moor. Striker Chris Woods’ 58th-minute goal was enough to give the win to the Clarets. Newcastle’s last win over Burnley was on Feb 26, 2019, as they gained a 2-0 victory at St. James’ Park.

Newcastle vs Burnley Prediction
Newcastle slipped into 14th place with defeat at Crystal Palace last weekend and now lie a precarious 7pts above the drop zone. At home though, they have only lost 3 times all season and last lost at St James Park on New Years Day.
Though they have been knocked out of the FA Cup, a recent resurgence in form has seen Burnley enter the top half of the table. They’re unbeaten in 5 league games now, although their away record still has them winning just 4 times away from home all season from 13.
Newcastle is under pressure and need to find a result in this game in front of their home fans. They have a tough run into the end of the season and need to hit that 40pt mark sooner rather than later, and this would be a great chance to end their slump in form.
