Burnley vs Newcastle – Prediction (Premier League – 14.12.2019)

Preview and Teams Comparison.

It’s not been a great run for Burnley who have lost six of their previous eight Premier League (PL) matches (W2). Their normally solid defence has been an area for concern, having conceded 2+ goals in all six of those defeats. Furthermore, the ‘Clarets’ were losing at half-time in five of those six losses. To get back to winning ways, Sean Dyche’s men need to focus on shutting out the opposition. This is because all five of their PL cleansheets this season came in their only victories of the season so far. Notably, three of those five wins came by way of the same 3-0 scoreline.

Impressive Newcastle have lost just one of their previous seven PL matches (W4, D2). A big factor behind that success has been their attack that finally seems to be clicking into gear – they have scored 2+ goals in five of those aforementioned seven matches. They also netted at least one goal in the final 30 minutes in the last three of those games. The ‘Toon’ boast a good H2H record vs Burnley, losing just one of their previous six H2H PL meetings (W2, D3, L1). Strikingly, the last two H2H meetings saw them net two goals before half-time.

Players to watch: Robbie Brady ended a two-year goal drought in Burnley’s last home PL game, and he will be hoping he can make it two home goals from two home matches here. Newcastle midfielder Jonjo Shelvey is in fine form having netting four goals in his previous six PL matches – all of those efforts came in the second half.

Stat attack: Burnley have conceded 31.03% of their PL goals between the 31st-45th minute. Burnley have led at half-time in just two of their eight PL home games. Newcastle have yet to concede a PL goal inside the opening 15 minutes of any away PL game.
