Newcastle host Burnley on Saturday afternoon, as Eddie Howe is still looking for a first win as Magpies boss.

The former Bournemouth coach has yet to win the lead for his new club, firstly to see his men lose 2-0 to Arsenal and lead them to a 1-1 draw against Norwich last time out. The points kept them rooted at the bottom of the Premier League table, six points behind safety and still the only team in the division that has not yet registered a win.

Saturday’s visitors to St James’ Park are Burnley, who, like Newcastle, are in trouble. Sean Dyche’s men are also in the relegation zone, three points behind Watford in 17th place, although it seems to be about to turn a corner – even if it’s at a snail’s pace. The Clarets have not lost in five league games, but must begin to draw draws after making four of those draws.

Here is a 90-minute preview of this basement meeting.

Ciaran Clark saw red against Norwich last time, so he will miss. However, there will be no headaches for Howe in central defense, thanks to Jamal Lascelles’ quick return to action from his own suspension.

Matt Ritchie is also returning from a suspension, although he may have to settle for a place on the bench after Jamal Lewis’ decent performance against Norwich.

Elsewhere, there is no new concern for the Magpies boss, whose only safe absence is the injured Paul Dummett.

Dyche will be able to welcome back James Tarkowski and Ashley Westwood from their respective suspensions, which means likely departures from the starting eleven for Nathan Collins and Jack Cork.

Elsewhere, there are no new worries for the Burnley boss, who will once again have to fight without Ashley Barnes, Dale Stephens and Phil Bardsley.

You can read Burnley’s expected lineup here.

The two sides have an almost identical record in terms of their head-to-head statistics. In 110 meetings, Newcastle have won 45 while Burnley have won 44 times (21 draws).

Neither side has really had periods of dominance in the match in recent years, as exemplified by their previous five meetings. Since December 2019, they have drawn once while winning two each – even though one of Burnley’s victories was the above EFL Cup penalty shootout earlier in the season.

In truth, this clash will probably not be a feast for the eyes.

Both sides come into this and need a win and given the six-point atmosphere that will inevitably engulf the occasion, we can look at a cagey one.

Newcastle will surely have a freshness over them, start a new era under Howe and actually play with a lot of heart and courage against Norwich last time. The test for them will be their clinical ability in connection moments – that is, the mentality of finally getting a win on the board.

By comparison, the results may come in very slowly for Burnley, but Dyche’s men clearly have the ability to get them. After showing the collective desire and experienced match play that has enabled them to maintain Premier League status for so long in recent weeks, it really seems that their status as a top team is safer than many other teams right now.

Still, this is a huge draw for both sides – which can only mean that we are in for a boring draw.

Prediction: Newcastle 1-1 Burnley
