Here are two teams that could still go down this season although of course Burnley are in the better position. The home side come into this game on Sunday in 15th place with 33 points and are 4 points clear of Newcastle and 7 points clear of the bottom three. That could change quick and this game represents a real ‘six pointer’.
Burnley’s form has been mixed with some good consistency but the club did lose their last game going down 3-2 at Southampton and that was bitterly disappointing for them as they were winning 2-0.
Newcastle are struggling and are trying to pick up at least one point every week. They are in 17th place and 3 points clear of the relegation zone. The club have only lost 1 game in their last five but have drawn 4 of those.
The Magpies last game ended in a good 2-2 draw at home to Tottenham and away from home Newcastle have not recorded a victory since beating Everton at the end of January and they have won only 3 games so far on the road.

Burnley vs Newcastle United: Prediction
This should be a tense but interesting game. Burnley has the advantage of being at home and Newcastle need to find a different method of playing.
When the Magpies beat Everton away it was seen as a surprise and they played tactically different, almost without fear, and that will be needed at the weekend if they are to win.
There is more pressure at this time for Newcastle to win and they have a chance, they have become quite difficult to beat lately. Striker Joelinton has been poor this season but he scored last weekend and perhaps getting one goal means that he may find form and he is worth backing at very good odds in this game.
