Both sides will be keen to take the points, as Burnley welcome Newcastle United to Turf Moor in the return fixture.

Burnley, currently sitting seventeenth, host twelfth placed Newcastle on Sunday.

This season’s Premier League campaign, has so far seen Burnley achieve 35 points

Burnley will be buoyant, following a 1-0 away win against Tottenham Hotspur in their last fixture.

Also, Michael Jackson knows that a run of seven losses in 12 games for his Burnley side, is going to be a tough run of form to change. However that is exactly what he must try to deliver. They currently stand seventeenth in the League, with 35 points for a total of 7 wins, 16 losses and 14 draws having won seven meetings, drawn 14 meetings, and lost 16 matches.

Playing at home, Burnley have won five fixtures, drawn six games, and lost seven meetings.

Victory for Burnley would take their points tally to 38 so far this season.

Burnley’s squad has depth, but even so, Michael Jackson is likely to be missing seven of they key players when they start Sunday’s game.

Newcastle United have 46 points to their name, going into this tie

Newcastle will be full of confidence, going into this fixture on that back of two successive wins against Arsenal and Manchester City. They will need this if they are to retain their run.

Also, Newcastle keep finding ways to win, having secured 11 victories in their last 17 games is astonishing this season. With a twelfth position in the league and 12 wins, 15 losses and 10 draws, they currently have 46 points in the League having won 12 fixtures, drawn 10 matches, and lost 15 meetings.

It must be a worrying prospect for Newcastle to go back on the road, with a bud run of away performances under their belt this season. So far they have only secured four victories, four draws, and 10 defeats to the home team.

Winning this fixture will see Newcastle United on 49 points.

Going into Sunday’s game, Eddie Howe without five of his players, due to illness or injury.
