Burnley 1-2 Newcastle
The Magpies get the job done and complete an Allan Saint-Maximin-inspired comeback. A huge boost to their chances of staying up.

SUB - Bruce killing time by replacing Almiron with Hendrick
- OffJóhann Berg GudmundssonBurnley
- OnJoel MumbongoBurnley
Four minutes of time added in to be played as Burnley bring on Mumbongo for Gudmundsson
CHANCE! ASM the architect again as he dashes past Tarkowski and pulls the back for Almiron, but the Burnley defender gets back to clear off the line.
Two minutes left for play and Newcastle are digging in now for the expected Burnley assault.
End to end stuff now. Longstaff mishits his shot and Saint-Maximin's follow-up effort is blocked. The ball is cleared for Vydra who forces Newcastle to concede a corner which is dealt with by Dubravka.
The main man, of that there is no doubt:
CHANCE! A lofted ball over the top finds Vydra and he holds off Fernandes before firing a shot into the side netting.
- Yellow cardJosh BrownhillBurnley
YELLOW! Brownhill goes in the book for a cynically hooking Almiron with Newcastle looking in a good place to break
If this turnaround is completed, it’s almost certain that Steve Bruce will get the freedom of Chez Bruce for the tactical genius of leaving his best players on the bench, letting the team fall behind, then sending on the best players to turn it around.
- GoalAllan Saint-MaximinNewcastle United
GOAL! Burnley 1-2 Newcastle.
Saint-Maximin rifles Newcastle ahead. He picks the ball up 40 yards from goal and Burnley are frightened to death as they back off and back off. He engages Tarkowski in the box, turns onto his left foot and slams a low shot into the corner. What. A Turnaround
- GoalJacob MurphyNewcastle United
GOAL! Burnley 1-1 Newcastle
Within a minute of the change, Newcastle are level. Saint-Maximin at the heart of it, as he drives into the box, draws in defenders and rolls the ball back to Murphy who rifles an excellent finish into the far corner.
- OffJoelintonNewcastle United
- OnAllan Saint-MaximinNewcastle United
Double change for Newcastle, with Wilson and ASM on for Gayle and Joelinton. Same formation but different personnel.
SAVE! Dubravka forced into action again to tip over a fierce drive from McNeil. Burnley pushing hard for a second right now
A Magpies legend has some words of advice:
SAVE! Dubravka to the rescue again as he tips Lowton's volley from the edge of the box over the bar. It was straight at him, but came through a scrum of players.
- 2nd Half
We're back underway for the second half at Turf Moor. No changes from either side.
And we'll just leave this here for you to make up your own minds:
A bit of half-time reading:
- End of 1st Half
Burnley 1-0 Newcastle
The Clarets lead at the break and are probably deserving of the advantage, but the talking point was Newcastle not being awarded what looked a clear-cut penalty.
CHANCE! Dubravka to the rescue as Dummett slices a cross towards his own goal, but Dubrakva reacts superbly to turn it round the post.
Football would be in a better place if referees were on microphone and the conversations with VAR broadcast. Would love to know what the conversation between referee Anthony Taylor and the people in the truck at Stockley Park was like.
“Anthony, Stockley Park here. He’s kicked him in the head, with his foot at head height. Probably a foul mate.”
Taylor: “But I’ve said it’s not a foul and I was looking straight at it.”
SP: “Okay, bud. Carry on, we can sweep it under the carpet.”
PENALTY SHOUT! Newcastle get forward and after Gayle’s shot is saved, Longstaff goes in to head the rebound in and goes down as Tarlowski catches him when clearing. That looks dangerous play all day long. It's not given, but if that was outside the area that would have been classed as a foul. Baffling stuff.
Newcastle have the ball in the net, but Gayle's close-range finish is rightly ruled out as he is about the size of a bus offside. At least Newcastle got forward and put the ball in a promising position.
Only one team celebrating, and only one team looking like doing more celebrating.
The importance of the big man to Burnley
The more you look back at that Burnley goal, the worse it gets for Newcastle. Wood is not known for searing pace or silky footwork, but he was able to glide past Clark with ease and pull the ball back for too easily. If Lascelles is done for the season, which seems likely, Newcastle are going to struggle to keep clean sheets.
So 18 minutes in and the Steve Bruce plan has been tossed out of the window. Newcastle will now have to come out of their shell, which could leave them exposed to the counter. Grim time for Newcastle fans right now.
- GoalMatej VydraBurnley
GOAL! Burnley 1-0 Newcastle
The hosts get their noses in front. Chris Wood picks up the ball on the edge of the box and drives towards the byline. He pulls the ball back for strike partner Matej Vydra who slots home. It's nothing more than Burnley deserved.
CHANCE! Burnley win a corner and the ball is flicked on at the near post by Brownhill and Martin Dubravka parries away, in the melee that follows Paul Dummett catchesBen Mee who falls to the ground. Penalty appeals are waved away. Set pieces are sure to be a source of joy for Burnley.
Murphy sums up the first 15 minutes, as he is picked out in acres of space but the Newcastle man lets the ball run out of play. Poor, poor play.
First shot on goal, as Vydra collects the ball in the box, turns and gets off an effort that is blocked by Ciaran Clark. It was an important block as it was heading into the corner.
Jacob Murphy needlessly dives in and concedes a free-kick in a dangerous area. Dwight McNeil whips in a decent ball from the left, but James Tarkowski is unable to direct his header on target. Newcastle would be well advised not to give Burnley too many of those sort of chances.
First bit of pressure from Newcastle, with a couple of crosses aimed at Dwight Gayle and Joelinton but Burnley’s defenders show great desire to smuggle the ball away.
Burnley launch the first foray into the Newcastle box, but Lowton’s cross is easy for Dubravka to gather.
A sign of things to come? Newcastle kick off and lump a long ball towards Joelinton but it goes out of play. Such a glorious pitch, yet the ball could spend an awful lot of time in the air.
- 1st Half
We are underway at Turf Moor!
Two minutes' silence taking place at Turf Moore for the Duke of Edinburgh
The teams are out on the pitch and we're almost ready at Turf Moor. This could go either way, and the way Newcastle are setting up their aim is to remain in the game deep in the second half and try and pinch something with the introduction of Wilson and Saint-Maximin. Burnley are almost certainly going to be setting the pace and will look to take advantage of the absence of Lascelles.
Coundown to kickoff is on
Dyche is hopeful that Pope’s shoulder injury is nothing serious. Peacock-Farrell is inexperienced in the Premier League, but is an established international for Northern Ireland so is not a bad deputy to call on.
Bruce on Wilson and ASM being on the bench: “It was difficult. These days, we’ve got to be 100% that they are 100% right. They have been training great, but you can’t replicate a game.
“It’s a bit of caution, but they could be ready to come on and win us the game.”
On Lascelles’ injury: “Jamaal has picked up a stress fracture to his foot.”
A sight for sore eyes for Newcastle fans, Callum Wilson on the pitch. He’s been out since February on account of a hamstring injury. How long will Bruce dare give his star striker?
We’re still in the middle of the season, but transfers are always at the front and centre of thinking. What is Erling Haaland up to? Getting filthy rich, if his agent has his way.
And here's a little bit of light reading for Newcastle fans to take in with their bacon and egg sandwich -
Crisp and cold look appropriate words to describe Turf Moor. I played a bit of 5 a side last week (editor’s note, hamstrings still sore) and can only dream of what it must be like to play on a pitch like this. Really would limit the excuses that are offered up by mole hills and rabbit holes.
Newcastle’s run of form is even worse than Burnley’s, with no wins in seven. They did show some fight in claiming a 2-2 draw against Tottenham last week, and Steve Bruce will be craving a similar performance.
Federico Fernandes and Ciaran Clark have been drafted in for Emil Krafth and Jamaal Lascelles at the back. The loss of Lascelles is a huge blow for the Magpies as he is the glue that binds their defence together.
Burnley have only one win to their name from their last seven games, although four draws in that run have kept their heads above water. Sean Dyche will look for his side to take the game to a shaky Newcastle, but losing England international goalkeeper Nick Pope to injury is a massive blow.
The visitors’ starting XI is out, and Dwight Gayle leads the line - with Callum Wilson on the bench, alongside Allan Saint-Maximin
Here’s the starting XI for the home side, with Bailey Peacock-Farrell handed his home Premier League debut
Hello and welcome to Eurosport’s live digital coverage of Burnley vs Newcastle from the Premier League!
Both sides are anxiously looking over their shoulders, but will have been relieved to see Fulham lose at home to Wolves on Friday.
A win for either time would be a huge boost to their hopes of retaining their Premier League status.
Kick-off is at 12pm UK time with team news coming right up!
