Burnley travel to St James’ Park to face Newcastle United on Saturday night aiming for their first points of the season. Goals will be at a premium in this match with neither side particularly interested in getting the fans off their seats.

Newcastle United Form

Newcastle United began the season brilliantly with a 2-0 win at West Ham but things have not been plain sailing since. A 1-0 home victory against Blackburn in the English League Cup followed before the Magpies suffered a 3-0 home loss to Brighton.

A 7-0 away victory over League Two’s Morecambe was followed with a very fortunate 1-1 draw at Tottenham. Newcastle’s last match ended 1-1 at Newport County after Jonjo Shelvey scored a last-gasp equaliser, Newcastle advancing on penalties.

Newcastle Untied News

Left-back Matt Ritchie has joined the treatment room at St James’ Park but Fabian Schar is available for selection after returning in midweek. Winger Allan Saint-Maximin also returned in midweek and should be available to Steve Bruce.

Goalkeeper Martin Dubravka is still out as is forward Dwight Gayle, centre-back Paul Dummett and central midfielder Matthew Longstaff. 

Burnley Form

Burnley have struggled with injuries at the beginning of the season and the lack of transfer activity continues to frustrate manager, Sean Dyche.

Burnley began the Premier League with a  4-2 loss at Leicester. They followed that up with a 2-0 win at Millwall before going down 1-0 at home to Southampton. In their last match Burnley lost 3-0 at home to Manchester City in the English League Cup.

With no points from their opening three Premier League matches, Burnley will be desperate to get on the board this weekend.
