The Clarets are favorites to remain in the Premier League as they face a nervous final day of the season.
As they head towards a tense final day of the season, Burnley know exactly what they need to do to secure their Premier League status.
Thursday night’s 1-1 draw at Aston Villa means the Clarets only need to match Leeds United’s result on their visit to Brentford to extend their stay in the top flight into a seventh season.
Newcastle United are the visitors to Turf Moor looking to end an eventful season with a win that could secure a top-ten finish.
What’s the team news from both sides?
The Clarets are without midfielders Ashley Westwood and Matej Vydra and have doubts about Ben Mee, Jay Rodriguez and Johann Berg Gudmundsson.
Matt Lowton will be suspended following the red card he received in Thursday night’s draw at Aston Villa.
The visitors will be without midfield duo Joe Willock and Jonjo Shelvey, as well as Chris Wood and Fabian Schär, both of whom returned to training on Thursday.
Eddie Howe will make a late decision for both players, with the latter still suffering from a concussion after suffering an injury in Monday’s home win against Arsenal.
What do the coaches say before the game?
Burnley caretaker Mike Jackson said: “From our position it would be a huge achievement.
“To win three games in 20 odd that’s not good enough, that’s relegation staring at you. The lads have done a good job of turning things around and hopefully we can now get that final win at the weekend, get out there and be safe.”
Newcastle manager Eddie Howe: “We will pick our strongest team and try to win the game. From our point of view there is no letting up and we are determined to end the season on a high note.
“Tactically we will try to do it right. We know Burnley is a very difficult game – a whole different challenge given what’s at stake.
What are the latest odds?
Brentford are marginal favorites to win as the Clarets are rated 6/5 to secure three points and retain their top-tier status.
Newcastle are seeded 11/5 with SkyBet and the draw is 12/5.
Where is the game broadcast?
No, Sky Sports did not select the game for Sunday afternoon live coverage.
However, highlights will also be shown in the match of the day, which airs on BBC One on Sunday evenings at 10.30pm.
Newcastle United are truly on the beach now, Premier League safety assured – sure, a top ten finish would be nice but it’s not essential.
Since there isn’t too much to play, you can’t imagine that they’ll be going for leather from the first whistle.
Burnley will play like their lives depend on it, and that’s ahead of a frenzied home support.
It’s going to be nerve-wracking, but the Clarets are survivalists and should have enough in the tank to secure the season save points.
