After a fantastic week in the Premier League and Carabao Cup, Newcastle United will look to extend their brilliant form on Saturday afternoon (15:00) when they face Burnley at St. James’ Park.

Newcastle are flying right now after thumping Sheffield United 8-0 last weekend and beating Manchester City in the Carabao Cup, while Burnley are still searching for their first win of the Premier League season.

Newcastle vs Burnley Prediction

  • Newcastle to win to nil @ 6/5
  • Anthony Gordon to score anytime @ 7/4

Team News

Harvey Barnes was forced off with a foot injury last week at Bramall Lane, and Eddie Howe has admitted that the former Leicester City man could be facing months on the sidelines.

Joe Willock and Emil Krafth both remain absent, while the likes of Kieran Trippier, Bruno Guimaraes and Fabian Schar are expected to come back into the starting XI.

As for Burnley, Benson Manuel suffered an ankle injury in the Carabao Cup victory against Salford City in midweek, and Johann Berg Gudmundsson will need to be assessed ahead of Saturday after coming off early against Man Utd last weekend with a calf problem.

Newcastle to win to nil @ 6/5

Newcastle recorded an emphatic triumph over Sheffield United last weekend, and continued their fine form in midweek with an impressive victory over Manchester City in the Carabao Cup, ending their unbeaten start to the season.

I’m also expecting the Clarets to struggle to break down this Newcastle defence, as the Magpies have kept four clean sheets in their last four outings.

Three of Burnley’s four losses have come by two or more goals, and they could well be in line for a tough afternoon at St James’ Park.

Anthony Gordon to score anytime @ 7/4

Anthony Gordon produced an excellent display against Sheffield United last weekend, registering a goal and an assist, and has two goals in six Premier League games, so he’s a decent shout to score anytime on Saturday.

The former Everton forward came off the bench against City in midweek so could be thrown back into the starting XI against Burnley.

Last week’s demolition of Sheffield United has shown that this Newcastle team is full of goals from all over the pitch, so Gordon is decent pick to score here in my opinion.
