Burnley’s flirtation with the top six is all but a distant memory now as the Lancashire club have failed to win any of their last seven league matches. That run of form has seen them subsequently be leapfrogged by Leicester who now find themselves in seventh at the expense of Sean Dyche’s men. The Clarets will look to finally return to winning ways when they travel to Tyneside, and they’ll go up against a Newcastle outfit who are hovering precariously close to the relegation zone at present. All bad runs must come to an end at some point and Burnley will be confident that theirs ends at St James’ Park on Wednesday night.

These two sides have only met once at St James’ Park in the Premier League and it is fair to say it was an explosive encounter on New Year’s Day of 2015. That is because it was a game that had no fewer than six goals that afternoon, but unfortunately for both sides neither one came out on top as they had the settle for a share of the points with the final score being 3-3.
