Burnley vs Newcastle by Pacifier

Burnley league survival last season was solely due to their home form where they picked up majority of their points from. Reverse has been the case this term with them picking most of their points away from home and then struggling at home. From their total haul of thirteen points, only five have been won at home and just two goals scored at home from their total of eight goals. They have been defensively solid also though, conceding just twice in those four home games also. They will be without goalkeeper Tom Heaton and striker Jon Walter for this game and could miss Chris Wood also after he suffered an injury in the 3-0 loss to Man City. Form wide though, they have lost just once in six games, losing just once and drawing four times and a point in this game would not be such a bad result for them.


Newcastle return to the premier league has gone well so far. They sit quite comfortably in eighth position with fourteen points from nine games and have just one loss from their last seven premier league games, winning four of those games. They have not been very good away from home though has they have only managed just one win in four games, losing two and drawing one. Paul Dummett and Dwight Gayle are both unavailable for the guests and they should pretty much stick to the same line-up that won against Palace last time out.


Burnley are slight underdogs for this game and that is due to their early home form and Newcastle improvement in recent weeks, but we have to know that Newcastle have not been consistent away from home and lost at Huddersfield and Brighton. They would not definitely not want another defeat here and they would be very happy with a point here. A result that would keep them above Burnley and move them to seventh place ahead of Watford on goal difference. I quite fancy both teams cancelling each other out and they would both be happy with a points gained from this game rather a three points lost. So, I anticipate a quite tight game with chances far and between. 0-0, 1-1 looks very probable here. Goodluck.pin
