Both sides are just one point above the relegation zone going into the clash at Turf Moor
Both sides are just a point above the relegation zone, winning just two out of twelve games this season.
Rafael Benitez’s Magpies will probably be feeling more confident going to the game as their two victories have actually come in their last two games.
However, the Clarets looked a much more solid unit last time out when they held Leicester to a goalless draw in their last league game.
What the managers are saying
Sean Dyche (Burnley): “Our fans will be behind the team. They were amazing at Leicester on a really tough day and played their part with respect and for the team.
“That all helps, and all goes into a combined effort, which has been a big thing for me; the combined effort of the group, the fans and the club.

Rafael Benitez (Newcastle): “Burnley are a strong team at home. Sean Dyche did a great job last season and I think he is quite a strong character.
“They will want to get three points against us because we are close in the table and the pressure is more or less the same.”
Despite twisting his knee against Leicester two weeks ago, Steven Defour is expected to be fit for the Newcastle game.
However, James Tarkowski is likely to miss out after undergoing hernia surgery but Johann Berg Gudmundsson (calf) is fit and Ben Gibson (hernia), Stephen Ward (knee) and goalkeeper Nick Pope (shoulder) are all making good progress.
Paul Dummett has been ruled out for Newcastle after suffering a calf injury during Wales’ Nations League match against Denmark during the international break.
Magpies boss Rafael Benitez will give late tests to captain Jamaal Lascelles (shoulder), Jonjo Shelvey and Yoshinori Muto (both calf).
Burnley: Hart, Lowton, Long, Mee, Taylor, Lennon, Defour, Cork, Berg Gudmundsson, Vokes, Wood
Newcastle: Dubravka; Yedlin, Schar, Fernandez, Manquillo; Ritchie, Ki, Diame, Kenedy; Perez; Rondon
