Newcastle Have Opportunity To Make Top Six At Turf Moor


If we forget about the top six clubs in the Premier League – the two Manchester clubs, Liverpool, Chelsea Arsenal and Tottenham, then Newcastle should be able to beat the other sides both home and away.

That’s a big assumption of course, but if we can do well against the bottom 14 clubs, there’s no reason why we cannot be up there in the top eight next May.

That would be deemed to be a very successful season given the pundits were forecasting Newcastle to be in a relegation battle this season because we just don’t have the players.

Sean Dyche – Burnley’s talented manager

Of the 14 teams left Burnley are one of the toughest and very much like Newcastle – well organized, compact, difficult to score against and hard to beat.

Our records are also similar.

9Brighton12016
10Huddersfield12-915
11Newcastle12-314
12Leicester12-213
13Bournemouth12-313

Newcastle have conceded just 8 goals this season and Burnley have conceded 9, but we have scored only 10 goals, and Burnley have scored 8.

So it will be a very close game on Monday night and maybe a low scoring game too – but you never know.

Like last Saturday against Crystal Palace, we can come away with another win on Monday night, but this time we will need to play somewhere near our best form to do that.

If we can get the win we should be in the top six in the Premier League on late Monday evening.

    I prefer it when we’re the underdogs.

    Aye I did Jib, cheers.
    My dislike for the regime can’t get in the way of fact. Rafa said in an undoctored, unphotoshopped, in the English language that the club made mistakes over Abrahams and Caberello, this is the truth Jib. Don’t let your “they can’t do wrong” stance get in the way of that.

    Draw is most likely result I think, but Burnley will be more vulnerable to our counter attacking so we should get some opportunities. My best guess is 1 – 1

    sitc,
    I’ve never been to Burnley before so looking forward to crossing that one of my list, aye, a draw would be a good result for anyone bar clubs looking for CL spots tbh.

    To be honest this has got the makings of a boring 0 – 0 draw with the teams cancelling each other out. So it will probably end up a 4 – 3 thriller (to us of course) 😀

    Jail – I used to live and work in Burnley – it’s a nice little place and North West people are similar us in the North East. Turf Moor is OK near the city centre.
