EPL: Newcastle vs The Clarets



Newcastle United will host rival Burnley at St James' Park in the fourth round of the Premier League on Saturday. If we look at their head-to-head past that lasted from October 30, 2017, both clubs have shared 2 victories and have a total of 9 goals scored between them with 5. The Magpies and four goals belonged to The Clarets.


Newcastle were indebted to the controversial handball rules at the weekend when Callum Wilson saved 1 point from the penalty spot against Tottenham Hotspur, thereby giving him a new debut goal since joining from relegated Bournemouth. Steve Bruce and his teachers went through a mixed start to their Premier League campaign - win 1, lose 1 and draw 1 and Magpies now has a lot to do with their fragile defense. Bruce is expected to shuffle the squad for the weekend when he was forced to change once due to an injury from Matt Ritchie against Tottenham. Jamal Lewis will therefore start at left-back, while the attacking duo of Allan Saint-Maximin and Ryan Fraser have a chance to feature after missing the weekend match. Elsewhere, Jacob Murphy, Emil Krafth and Sean Longstaff will compete for the starting position, while Karl Darlow kept on goal. Newcastle United have not won a win over Burnley in their last 2 matches and have not won at home in their last 5 league games.

Following a loss to Southampton in the Premier League, Burnley and their fans are hoping to get a better result this time despite having a 54% possession and nine shots, including 2. on target and the only goal hit in the 5th minute. In the last six games, Sean Dyche's Burnley celebrated eight goals total, delivering an average scoring efficiency per game of 1.33. The most recent encounter of the tournament with the presence of these two teams was the Premier League match round 28 on February 29, 2020, which ended with a boring 0-0 draw, Burnley had 8 shots. hit the goal and hit the target once Burnley has a lot of players absent, including Ben Mee, Jack Cork and Johann Berg Gudmundsson however welcomes the return of several players including James Tarkowski, who continues to be expected to leave the club
