Newcastle vs Burnley: Premier League preview
Rafa Benitez’s Newcastle have the second worst home record in the Premier League this season.
The Magpies have won just 3 matches at St James’ Park and have amassed a total of just 12 points in their home fixtures.
A second string Newcastle side was knocked out of the FA Cup at the hands of Chelsea on Sunday meaning that the majority of the first team are fully rested and ready to play.
Burnley won the reverse fixture between the two sides earlier in the season. Jeff Hendrick’s 74th minute strike was enough to separate the two teams.
Burnley have been fantastic this season and have surpassed the expectations of almost everybody but 2018 has not been kind to them.
Sean Dyche’s team are without a win since the 12th of December, when they beat Stoke, 1-0, at Turf Moor.
Since then, Burnley have lost to Man United, Spurs, Man City and Crystal Palace whilst dropping points against Brighton and Huddersfield.
