Knowing that another shock victory on the road this weekend could see them potentially break into the top half, a high-flying Newcastle will make the trip to a struggling Turf Moor on Saturday afternoon.
Now picking up back-to-back victories over Southampton last time out and also snatching a 2-0 win away at Sheffield United earlier in the month, Steve Bruce’s side have lost just one of their last seven Premier League appearances.
On the flip side, while the mood in Newcastle’s camp might be on the rise, Burnley find themselves in the midst of a real struggle.
Shipping five against Tottenham last weekend, the Clarets have lost their last three top-flight matches on the bounce and they will also be hugely concerned by their most recent meetings against this weekend’s guests.
You might be interested to know that when Newcastle faced off against Burnley last season, the Magpies landed back-to-back victories, including a 2-1 win at Turf Moor back in November 2018. A similar away victory this weekend can be found as high as 3/1 with Paddy Power for Saturday afternoon.
Burnley in free-fall?
Putting in arguably a season-worst display and hit with a thumping 5-0 defeat in North London last weekend, Head Coach Sean Dyche finds his side enduring a three-match losing run.
Freefalling out of the top half of the standings, some around Lancashire are fearing that their side could be dragged into a relegation scrap.
Along with struggling on home soil, fans around Turf Moor have seen their side face a string of issues at the back.
You might be interested to know that Burnley are priced at 4/1 with Coral to be hit with a shock Championship return next year.
Along with shipping five against Spurs last time out, Saturday’s hosts have suffered back-to-back defeats in front of their own supporters, including a 2-0 defeat against Crystal Palace last month.
Also losing three of their last four matches on home soil, Burnley have shipped two or more goals in their previous three matches at Turf Moor and can be found pencilled in at 12/5 with William Hill to once again ship over 1.5 goals this weekend.
Newcastle’s resurge continues
Snatching a last-gasp 2-1 victory over Southampton at St. James’ Park last weekend, few across England would have expected Newcastle’s stellar resurge.
Landing back-to-back victories, including a very eye-catching 2-0 win at Bramall Lane a fortnight ago, fans around the North East are really starting to get behind one-time Sunderland boss Steve Bruce.
Tasting defeat just once in their last seven outings, a run that stems back to the 19th of October, the Magpies also snatched a famous 2-2 draw off of defending champions Manchester City last month.
One man who has really spearheaded Newcastle’s recent revolution and is enjoying his brightest run in the North East is the red-hot Jonjo Shelvey.
Once again finding the net against Southampton last time out, the former Liverpool midfielder has found the net in each of his last three Premier League matches on the bounce and the 27-year-old can be found as high as 6/1 with Coral to extend on his recent purple patch this weekend.
