Can we do it on a warm afternoon in Burnley?

Updated: May 2

Newcastle will be looking to lift the turf up on turf moor

Burnley are looking to continue their recent good form from a 1-1 draw against Brighton, followed by a impressive 4-1 victory over Sheffield United, then with their most recent positive result picking up a point and even a penalty at Old Trafford and came away with a vital point and should have come away with more.

Burnley came into the game at Old Trafford with a typical Burnley 4-4-2 formation and the starting eleven were as the graphic below.

Burnley were really impressive in the game and have Manchester United a really good game and it showed Burnley are fighting for their lives, here are the stats for the away game at Old Trafford

Burnley seems to be better suited to away from home slightly at home they have the following stats

Played 17, Won 2, Drawn 4 and lost 11 with a win percentage of 12% at home, Burnley have also failed to score in 41% of home games this season, so Newcastle will want to take advantage of this poor form at home to gain another 3 huge points

The reverse fixture if you can believe it was a 2-0 win at St James Park just before our famous clash with PSG in the Champions league it was Newcastle's third victory in a row at the time, Miggy and Isak (P) with the two goals on that day.

The important thing is for Newcastle that we improve our away form as this has not been up to scratch recently with 16 matches played, 4 wins, 2 draws and a huge 10 defeats away the last away defeat coming from the hands of Crystal Palace.

The team should hopefully be confident after a better 2nd half performance against Sheffield United and with a win making Europe more and more likely, Burnley however will be fighting hard to gain any points as they can still stay up! So all to play for this coming Saturday

The team will as always be doing a watch along so don't miss out on this

Lets hope for a positive result for the team!
