Sean Dyche – Burnley manager
There’s just one change to the side that beat Crystal Palace last time out.
Mo Diame comes in for Isaac Hayden to partner Jonjo Shelvey in central midfield, and that’s a bit of a surprise with Isaac Hayden on the bench.
But there’ no Mikel Merino and Henri Saivet is on the bench – Mikel has a back injury, so that’s a blow for Newcastle.
Newcastle fans seem fairly confident we can get a good result in this game tonight with over 50% thinking we can win the game.
A win would be a terrific result and would put us up to 6th in the league table.
Howay The Lads!!
