Burnley vs Newcastle United Prediction. Burnley see their fate to survive in the Premier League in their own hands when they will host Newcastle United in the last weekend of the Premier League on Sunday (22/5) early morning WIB.
Crazy Ball – A 1-1 draw at home to Aston Villa in midweek meant a lot to Burnley which meant they moved up to 17th in the table to beat Leeds United in a battle to escape the relegation zone at the end of the season.
While their goal difference is very difficult to catch up with The Whites, The Clarets only need to match the results of their rivals to survive the threat of relegation and stay in the Premier League for next season.
But they will not have an easy game to achieve their ambitions as they will host Newcastle United who have been in excellent form in 2022 since their transfer business in January earlier this year.
Even Eddie Howe’s men will come into this match highly motivated after picking up a convincing 2-0 win over Arsenal in the previous game to give them a good chance of finishing in the top 10 at the end of the season.
There have been 111 meetings between the two teams across competitions, with the first taking place in 1895. Head to head is pretty tight, with Newcastle enjoying a narrow 46-44 lead in wins and 21 matches ending in a draw. The Magpies won 1-0 in the first meeting of the season.
James Tarkowski is back from injury, but Matt Lowton is suspended, while Matej Vydra, Jóhann Gudmundsson, Ashley Westwood, Erik Pieters, Ben Mee and Jay Rodriguez are still injured.
Ryan Fraser is a doubt with a hamstring injury for Newcastle, Javi Manquillo has chickenpox and Jonjo Shelvey, Joe Willock and Jamal Lewis are all ruled out for this game.
Burnley XI (3-5-2): Nick Pope; Nathan Collins, James Tarkowski, Kevin Long; Connor Roberts, Josh Brownhill, Jack Cork, Dwight McNeil, Charlie Taylor; Maxwell Cornet, Ashley Barnes
Newcastle XI (4-3-3): Martin Dubravka; Kieran Trippier, Jamaal Lascelles, Dan Burn, Matt Targett; Sean Longstaff, Bruno Guimaraes, Joelinton; Miguel Almiron, Clauum Wilson, Allan Saint-Maximin
Only Brighton & Hove Albion and Crystal Palace (15) have drawn more Premier League draws this season than Burnley (14) following last weekend’s 1-1 draw against Aston Villa.
Burnley will have reason to be optimistic here as they have three wins in their last four home games in the league, while The Magpies have lost three of their last four away matches.
The visitors are superior in quality and we wouldn’t be surprised if they win, but a strong determination to stay out of the relegation threat could give the hosts even more motivation to get the best result.
Score Prediction: Burnley 1-1 Newcastle United
