Salomon Rondon has returned from his International exploits and he will be ready to play for Newcastle in our game at Turf Moor next Monday night.
By then the other teams in the Premier League will have played their games so we will know where we stand in the league.
At the moment we have 9 points from 12 games but we are just a single point above third-bottom club Cardiff City.
We are level on points with Burnley but have a better goal difference
Burnley finished 7th last season and qualified for the Europa League, but this season has not been a good one so far for the Turf Moor club.

It’s going to be another difficult game for us on Monday night and this is what Rondon has said about the game in the Chronicle today:
“We go to Burnley in good spirits but also knowing that the Premier League is very difficult.” “Things can change from week to week.”
“That’s because every team is at such a high level and no matter whether you are home and away each team is going to have a great chance of three points.”
“Most importantly we have to be up for the battle.” “We have to be ready.”
“We’ll have to do the same things we did in the wins against Bournemouth and Watford.”
“I have flown to Japan and Iran for games.” “It has been a long way but it is part of international football.”
“That’s what it’s like for the international players to represent their countries, and I’m always happy to do that.”
“I was always happy to take the number 9 shirt.” “I know what came before with it with players like Alan Shearer and Andy Cole wearing the important number.”
“We all know what has happened in the history books.” “For me, the most important thing is confidence.”
Here are where we are in the standings before this weekend’s Premier League games.
