Newcastle United host Burnley in their latest must-win encounter at St James’ Park on Wednesday night. Their home has always been a fortress, but this year, Rafa Benitez is struggling to get any home wins on the board. Crystal Palace were the last side they beat on home soil back in October, with draws against Brighton and most recently Swansea the most frustrating so far.

The Magpies went on to lose to Burnley after the Palace game, with that 1-0 defeat sparking a run of nine games without a win. When they met at Turf Moor, both sides were well in the race for the top half, but while Newcastle have tailed off dangerously, the Clarets have maintained their place very impressively and currently sir eighth. Sean Dyche’s side have not won in seven, though, so it could be a great time for Newcastle to end their poor run in front of their own fans.

Form

Fortunately for Newcastle, their awful run of overall form has been stopped somewhat on the road, with wins against West Ham and Stoke over the festive period. But those poor home results against other relegation rivals mean there is more pressure on them coming into this game, with only a point separating them from the bottom three.

Burnley are in no such trouble thanks to their impressive first half of the season, but their form has been a bit of a worry lately. Defeat to Manchester United last week means they are without a win in seven games and have dropped behind Leicester in the table.

Burnley have no fresh injury concerns, while Newcastle could welcome Aleksandar Mitrovic back into the side provided he is not sold while giving a debut to Kenedy, the new loan signing from Chelsea.
