Newcastle United v Burnley Match Preview & Best Odds

 

Newcastle United fans will be on cloud nine following some excellent recent results and they will be hoping that the feel-good factor continues on Saturday afternoon when they entertain Burnley at St James’ Park.

Newcastle United stunned Manchester City on Wednesday evening as they dumped the European champions out of the League Cup at St James’ Park, this win coming on the back of an 8-0 demolition of Sheffield United at Bramall Lane just a few days earlier. The Magpies came off second best in the 2022/23 League Cup Final with Manchester United lifting the trophy, however they are one step closer to avenging this defeat after dumping the perennial champions out of the tournament.

Newcastle’s reward for their midweek win is a meeting with Manchester United in the fourth round of the competition and following a shaky start to the campaign, Eddie Howe’s men are starting to look like their old selves with the 8-0 thrashing of the Blades being testament to this. This stellar sequence included a goal-less draw with AC Milan at the San Siro in the Champions League and a fifth successive clean sheet on Saturday afternoon would suit the Magpies well before the visit of PSG to St James’ Park next Wednesday.

Burnley’s chances of coming away from St James’ Park with all three points in the bag seems somewhat fanciful on the back of Newcastle’s recent form, however the Clarets did manage to outgun their weekend opponents on the goalscoring front in the third round of the League Cup after putting four without reply past Salford in midweek. Vincent Kompany’s men will face Everton in the fourth round of the competition but for now they will look to turn around what has been a dreadful start to their Premier League campaign, just a single point having been collected from their opening six league outings.

Nevertheless, while Burnley can’t seem to manage a point on home soil this term, on their travels they remain undefeated and haven’t lost on the road since being hammered 6-0 at Manchester City in the FA Cup six months ago. That said, while their away form has been pretty admirable, we envisage Burnley’s resistance being broken on Tyneside this weekend and with the Magpies having rediscovered their defensive solidity, we expect the hosts to claim a relatively easy three points in this one.

 

Back Newcastle to win-to-nil at best odds of 13/10
