Newcastle, on the other hand, will be eyeing a win that could land them a top-half finish, a remarkable feat considering they went winless from their first 14 games of the season.

Supporters inside Turf Moor are braced for a tense and nervy affair on Sunday afternoon with their six-year stay in the Premier League hanging in the balance.

Newcastle’s first win of the campaign came against the Clarets back in December when a Callum Wilson goal was enough for Eddie Howe’s side on that afternoon.
