Kick-Off at 20:00 UK
Venue: St. James’ Park (Newcastle).
Tuesday’s action in the English Premier League 28th round is going to be closed with the clash between Newcastle United and Burnley.
The hosts are still struggling to keep their heads above the water as they are four points ahead of the red line. However, they’ve improved their game lately as home side managed to pick up ten points from the last five rounds.
Although Rafael Benitez’s side has been pretty decent in the back, their finishing should have been way better. Newcastle United improved their home performances significantly as they managed to tie three victories in a row in front of their fans.
Burnley are also enjoying their good form as they haven’t lost eight times in a row in the Premier League. This excellent run dragged them away from the relegation zone and they are six points ahead of the red line.
Chris Wool and the lads are doing a pretty good job in the front, while the visitors managed to tighten up their defence which has been pretty weak in the first half of the season. Their away displays have been much better lately as Burnley haven’t lost four times in a row.
