Burnley will be looking to boost their hopes of Premier League survival when they welcome a Newcastle side chasing European football to Turf Moor on Saturday.

The Clarets find themselves two points from safety with just three matches remaining and they head into the contest on the back of a 1-1 draw at Manchester United, extending their unbeaten run to three games.

Newcastle thrashed Sheffield United 5-1 at St James' Park last time out, a result that confirmed the Blades' relegation to the Championship and also got the Magpies back in the mix for a European position.

Team news

Aaron Ramsey, Jordan Beyer, Nathan Redmond and Ameen Al-Dakhil are all missing for the hosts due to injury, while Saturday's fixture comes too soon for Luca Koleosho.

Fabian Schar is the latest Newcastle player to be ruled out for the season, joining Jamaal Lascelles, Sven Botman, Joe Willock, Matt Targett and Lewis Miley on the sidelines.

Kieran Trippier is unavailable due to a calf problem, but is expected to play a part before the end of the campaign, while Joelinton, Miguel Almiron and Nick Pope have returned to training, although this clash comes too soon for the trio.

The stats

Burnley have lost just one of their last eight assignments and have failed to score in only one of those contests.

The Clarets have conceded 37 goals at home in the league, only Sheffield United (51) have a worse record.

Newcastle have won three of their last four matches, most recently thrashing the Blades 5-1 to put themselves within one point of Manchester United in sixth.

The Magpies have the fourth-best scoring record in the division, netting 74 times, but their tally of 34 goals conceded on the road is higher than just five other teams.


Burnley are fighting hard to avoid relegation from the Premier League and this has brought about an attacking improvement in the side, with Vincent Kompany's troops netting in seven of their last eight matches.

The Clarets will need to push for goals against Newcastle on Saturday and they are expected to hit the back of the net at least once, especially now the visitors are without centre-back Fabian Schar.

But while the Magpies have struggled at the back, they are thriving at the other end of the pitch and have been spearheaded by 19-goal striker Alexander Isak, who is just two goals off Golden Boot leader Erling Haaland.

Newcastle should play their part in an entertaining encounter and the Turf Moor crowd could be in for an absolute cracker in Lancashire.
