Burnley are welcoming Newcastle United for another important game after their 2-3 result against 13th-placed Southampton.

Insights:
  • Burnley have the fewest matches over the total-line (10) in Premier League
  • Newcastle United have conceded at least twice as many goals as they have scored away.

There should be plenty of energy on the pitch in this game, as both sides have had time to recuperate from their last game. Let's hope both teams are ready to give it all.

Burnley form and stats

When playing at home in the Premier League, Burnley have managed 4 wins, 6 draws and suffered 5 defeats from 15 games. The home supporters have been following results with a growing disbelief as Burnley has racked up an amazing five draws in a row here at their own stadium. How long will this continue?

Burnley are hoping to put things right at home after a defeat in their previous match, the score 2-3 away versus Southampton. In the game before, an away victory match versus Everton with a 2-1 scoreline.

Did Burnley get overconfident in their match against Southampton? We'll let you decide, but they did lose a 2-0 lead to end up with a 2-3 defeat.

This is expected to be a close game, with Burnley perhaps considered small favourites due to their home advantage. Looking back at earlier matches similar to this one (expected to be close with Burnley as a small favourite), we find seven games. Burnley has won two of these, drawn three and lost two.

The goals haven't exactly been flowing for Burnley here at Turf Moor in the league, with less than one goal per game on average (12 from 15 games). Burnley have conceded 16 in these home matches.

Newcastle United form and stats

The hunting on away grounds haven’t been very fruitful for Newcastle United so far with only 12 points returning home. The records show 3-3-9 (win-draw-lose).

There were no winners in Newcastle's previous match, a Premier League home game that ended 2-2 vs Tottenham Hotspur (placed 6th). A 0-3 defeat away at Brighton & Hove Albion before that.

The draw against Tottenham Hotspur came from a losing position. The Newcastle manager S. Bruce brought on Joseph Willock as a substitute and the player scored to make the scores level.

As mentioned above, this is an open game with no clear favourite. We have found six similar matches played by Newcastle United in our archives, and the results are: two wins for Newcastle United, two draws and two defeats.

Many goals are not expected from the visiting Newcastle United as they have only managed to score 11 times from 15 away games in the league. It's been trouble in front of goal recently, as only 1 of these goals has been scored in their last three away matches. Newcastle United's defence is not exactly unbeatable as they have conceded 25 goals from these trips.

Head 2 Head

The dueling parties have met before this season: Newcastle United - Burnley 3-1. Head-to-head totals (for the last nine meetings): Burnley won two games, four matches ended with a draw and Newcastle United has three wins. Over 2,5 goals / under 2,5 goals: three / six
