Burnley Prediction – Can Burnley avoid fourth loss on trot?

Any hopes Burnley may have had of recording a third win on the trot at home to Crystal Palace recently were well and truly dashed by Roy Hodgson’s Eagles side, and indeed, Burnley have since stumbled to three defeats on the trot after registering back-to-back wins earlier in November.

Recent wins against West Ham and Watford home and away and both by 3-0 margins looked as though Burnley were at last finding their mojo again under manager, Sean Dyche, but The Clarets have since slumped to three defeats on the trot following losses to Crystal Palace, Manchester City and Tottenham – the latter two results being heavy defeats in 4-1 and 5-0 reverses.

This means that Burnley have conceded a total of 11 goals in their last 3 matches, so why is the under 2.5 goals mark looking good for this upcoming clash with Newcastle United? 6 of the last 8 encounters between these two teams have resulted in under 2.5 goals, while 3 of the last 4 meetings at Turf Moor have also been under the 2.5 goals threshold.

Results at home for Burnley have been indifferent and inconsistent as the hosts possess a record of 4-0-4 12/13 at Turf Moor so far this season.

Newcastle United Prediction – Can Newcastle continue steady climb?

Having suffered just 1 defeat out of their last 7 matches overall in the Premier League, Steve Bruce’s side have slowly but steadily climbed the top flight table up into 11th place and another three points on Saturday at Turf Moor could see The Magpies climb into 5th place.

This underlines the hard work that Bruce & co have been doing behind the scenes at Newcastle as the 2-0 loss away at Aston Villa has been their only blip in what has been an otherwise solid sequence of results for the north-east outfit.

Victories over West Ham, Bournemouth, Sheffield United and Southampton have not only lifted Newcastle United away from the lower reaches of the Premier League and the relegation zone but has also placed the visitors in a favourable position to continue their ascent up the table.

However, there’s still plenty of work ahead for Newcastle to improve upon a poor away record of 3-0-5 8/16 which includes wins at Tottenham, West Ham and Sheffield United but also 5 defeats as well.

Steve Bruce will therefore be keen to shore things up at the back here, and 4 of their 8 away matches have resulted in under 2.5 goals too.


Key-Facts – Burnley vs Newcastle Utd

  • 4 of Newcastle’s 8 away matches have resulted in under 2.5 goals in the EPL
  • 3 of the last 4 meetings at Turf Moor have been under the 2.5 goals threshold
  • 6 of the last 8 encounters between these two teams have resulted in under 2.5 goals


Betting Tips Verdict

This looks like being a closely fought battle at Turf Moor and this could therefore result in a low-scoring clash.
