Burnley vs Newcastle United Match Preview
Two outsider teams in the top eight of English Premier League will clash for bragging rights at the Turf Moor. Burnley and Newcastle United have been impressive with their start to the season which makes this fixture on Monday, October 30 very interesting.
Burnley have 13 points from nine games and are in eighth place in the Premier League table. They started this season with exceptional away form that has seen them take points on trips to Chelsea, Tottenham and Livepool already. Though they were beaten 3-0 at the Etihad by Manchester City last weekend, the Clarets remain one of the surprise packages of the season. This is in complete contrast to their form last year when it was invincibility at Turf Moor that saved them from relegation. This season, they have won only one of their home games in the Premier League drawing twice and losing against West Brom. That’s not a bad return but they need to raise the bar against Newcastle, a side that is on the ascendancy.
For Newcastle United, it had been a great turn around after a poor start to the season. After the losses to Tottenham Hotspurs and Huddersfield Town, it looked like the Magpies are on their way back to the Championship. But, Rafael Benitez side has stormed back ever since and made a swift move into the top-half of the table. Seven matches since, have seen four wins, two draws and just one loss. They have 14 points from nine matches and are seventh in the table. Confidence seems to be back for the side that has scored in six of their last seven matches in the League. Benitez knows the perils of planning way ahead and would like to keep his initial target of survival intact. That means, a win on the night would be crucial in the final run.

Burnley vs Newcastle United Predictions
Draw seems to be the favourite pick considering four of Burnley’s last seven matches ending in a stalemate; likewise, two of Newcastle’s last three. However, the Magpies are in good form while the Clarets have struggled at home this season. There could be a win for the visitors with an odd goal in three. Backing both sides to score is a good pick as well.
