Burnley hosts Newcastle United at the Turf Moor in a game from the 17th round of the Premier League
Burnley hosts Newcastle United at the Turf Moor in a game from the 17th round of the Premier League. This is the right moment to present you our English Premier League predictions for this fixture.
Burnley are 13th in the league right now with 18 points and a record of 5 wins, 3 draws and 8 defeats. At certain point they were in the Top 8 of the Premier League, but some bad results made them drop out of the first half of the table. Right now they are in a run of three consecutive losses, so on Saturday Sean Dyche’s boys will try to start winning again.
In the previous round Burnley had to visit Tottenham Hotspur in London and it didn’t go well for them. The visitors were outperformed in every aspect of the game and lost it with 0-5. It was probably their worst performance since the beginning of the season.
Against Newcastle Burnley will be without the suspended Ashley Westwood, while Charlie Taylor and Johann Gudhmundsson are recovering from injuries.
Newcastle United went up in the table and now they are 11th in the standings with 22 points. They are in a good shape right now, having lost just one of their last five games. They also won three of them.
Last week the Magpies hosted Southampton at home and celebrated a 2-1 win. Danny Ings scored first for the Saints, but the hosts secured the win with goals from Jonjo Shelvey and Federico Fernandez. This was a 6th win for the season for Steve Bruce’s team. This is the type of performance which could guarantee Newcastle a survival.
That’s our English Premier League predictions for the game between Burnley and Newcastle United from the 17th round of the competition. The visitors are in a much better shape at the moment, but let’s see how Burnley will do after three consecutive defeats.
