Newcastle United have been in a relegation battle since the season began, with the Magpies unable to pull away from the bottom three and a recent 1-1 draw at Molineux saw them denied the three points by a late Wolves equaliser.

Team news | League Table | Odds

Rafael Benitez will still be confident that the Tyneside club can avoid the drop, although form at St James’ Park has been suspect all season and Newcastle have suffered defeat on eight occasions and only managed to score twelve times in front of their own supporters.

United are a workmanlike team who recently beat Manchester City and will be gunning for a maximum haul considering that three of their next four matches take place away from home.

Miguel Almiron has recently arrived from Atalanta and perhaps he can make an impact for the Magpies, although Burnley clearly arrive in better form and Sean Dyche will be eyeing another season in the top flight after an excellent run.

After a 5-1 thumping at home to Everton on Boxing Day, it was seven games unbeaten before a recent home clash with Tottenham and that has included a 3-1 win at Brighton which really boosted their survival hopes.

Ashley Barnes has been in excellent form and Chris Wood has scored six goals in nine games for the Clarets, with Tom Heaton back between the sticks and looking like the safe pair of hands that has previously helped Burnley remain in the top flight.

We think that this could be a tight encounter considering that the stakes are high and a draw would clearly suit Burnley better at this stage of proceedings. 

Newcastle are certainly stronger from a defensive point-of-view rather than what they can create moving forward and a return of twenty-two goals from twenty-six matches played illustrates this.

Salomon Rondon remains more of a target man rather than a predator, with Ayoze Perez immensely skilful although he lacks the killer instinct in front of goal.
