- haven't been defeated in their previous 5 league matches at home.

Team News: Burnley
Burnley manager Sean Dyche has zero fitness concerns whatsoever before this game thanks to a fully healthy squad to choose from.
Team News: Newcastle United
Newcastle boss Steve Bruce has some current player fitness concerns. Fabian Schär (Knee Injury) and Isaac Hayden (Knee Injury) miss out here.
We believe that Newcastle United have the firepower to breach the defence of this Burnley outfit, but it is unlikely to be as many as the goals that they could concede.
We’re tipping a 2-1 advantage for Burnley by the time that the referee blows the final whistle. Should be an interesting one.
