Preview | September 30
Newcastle's unimpressive form can be seen in the table. They have dropped down to 8th. A closer look at Newcastle's attack this season shows they have averaged 14.5 shots per match (6.8 of which have been on target). That shot accuracy has contributed to their season average of 2.12 xG (expected goals) per match coming into this one. Dan Burn has put in some fantastic performances defensively, winning 7 tackles and making 6 interceptions so far this season.
Burnley come into the match looking for a boost of confidence after taking just 1 point over their last 5 matches. Burnley need to pose more of a threat going forward. Over the last 5 matches, they've only achieved an average xG of 0.74 (2nd lowest in EPL). They'll be hoping Jordan Beyer can help with more solid defensive work. So far this season, he's made 10 tackles (13th in the EPL). Keeper James Trafford has felt the pressure as of late, allowing 13 goals in his last 5.
Newcastle-Burnley Prediction: 2-0
Newcastle's solid defence should be the foundation for another three points.
Did you know? The most common scoreline between the two teams in Premier League history is 2-1, which has occurred three times.

Nickname: The Clarets
Stadium: Turf Moor (Capacity 21,944)
Manager: Vincent Kompany (BEL)
Last Season: 1st (Championship)
After relegation in 2021-22, it only took Burnley a single season to return to the top flight with Vincent Kompany at the helm. With over 100 points and just three defeats in the league last year, Burnley will be hoping to build a strong case for survival, maintaining their Premier League status for more than a single season.
Midfielder Josh Brownhill played a pivotal role in Burnley’s promotion last season. Scoring seven and assisting eight, he ended up in the EFL Championship team of the season alongside three other Burnley players. Having also featured in 78 Premier Leagues for the Clarets during their previous campaigns, his experience will be invaluable for the upcoming season.
England U21 Penalty-shootout hero James Trafford saved the spot kick that secured the European Championship and will hope to carry that form forward for newly promoted Burnley. A deal seemingly built on the connection between Kompany and City, Trafford takes the number one shirt for Burnley and will be starting in the league for the first time.
The Championship champions host the Premier League champions in the opening Friday night fixture. It doesn’t get much more difficult than hosting Pep Guardiola and his treble-winning side, but former City captain will know this side better than any other manager. Can the Clarets make amends for the 6-0 FA Cup thumping they received last season?
The direct and defensive football Burnley used to be known for under former manager Sean Dyche is a thing of the past. With Kompany at the helm, Burnley are a much more attacking and creative outfit. Scoring over 100 points in the Championship is no mean feat, and while safety should be straightforward, a respectable lower-mid-table finish is likely.
Can Burnley avoid the drop and stay in the Premier League for another season?
(odds correct as of July 31, 2023, and subject to change)
Did you know? Burnley started life as a rugby team under the name Burnley Rovers. In 1882, members decided to change their codes to football making them one of the founding members of the Football League.
