Burnley continues with their search for the first points of the season this weekend. The side travel to St. James Park to take on side Newcastle. The match schedules for Saturday with kickoff at 10 pm.
Burnley have two defeats since the start of the new season from Leicester City and Southampton. Their opponents this weekend bagged four points since the beginning of the Premier League.
Newcastle started off the new season on a high note with a 2-0 win over West Ham. New signing Callum Wilson and Jeff Hendrick came on point. The last weekend was another thrilling match for Steve Bruce. After struggling to equalize an early goal by Mourra, the side managed to seal off the deadlock with a controversial handball by Dier to land them a penalty.
The Magpies are currently without a win in the Premier League against Burnley. The side recently suffered a 1-0 loss at Turf Moor and their second league ended in a goalless draw at St James Park.
The Clarets edged out of the EFL Cup in the midweek fixture following a 3-0 defeat to Manchester City. The site currently has not tasted a win since the new season, and this does not go down with Dean Smith. The side has had a modest transfer window, and it could turn out to be a difficult season for the Clarets.
