Newcastle will have been grateful for a point in the end against Norwich on Tuesday night having played 81 minutes with ten men. The result means they are still the only side without a top-flight victory with seven of their 14 played finishing all-square. At home, the Magpies have drawn four of seven with the three defeats coming to Tottenham, Chelsea and West Ham.
Burnley saw their unbeaten run stretched to five Premier League games with a goalless draw at Wolves in midweek. Four of these five games have finished all-square and seven of 14 for the season. Away from Turf Moor, the Clarets have drawn four of their last five with the defeats this season coming at Goodison Park, Anfield and the Eithad.
Newcastle vs Burnley Predictions
These sides are draw specialists with a combined 14 from the 28 they have played in the Premier League this season. Another draw could be on the cards here in a game that neither side can afford to lose.
Maxwel Cornet has five goals for Burnley this season with four coming in the last five and he will fancy his chances here against the Magpies backline. Newcastle have failed to keep a clean-sheet in any of their home games this season and having played 81 minutes with ten men in midweek tired legs look especially vulnerable to the pace of the Ivorian.
