Improving Newcastle can claim crucial point

348
Newcastle United boss Rafael Benitez

Newcastle United head to Burnley on Monday evening and they can continue their unbeaten run at Turf Moor, but they may have to settle for a point.

Draw @ 21/10

The Magpies are unbeaten in three and have won their last two games, having claimed home wins over Watford and Bournemouth at St James’ Park.

The Clarets’ home form last season was the key factor in their seventh-place finish last term but this year they have picked up just four points from five games at Turf Moor.

Sean Dyche’s men are winless in five but did end a three-game losing run with a point at Leicester last time out.

Goals have been an issue for the hosts too as they have failed to score in three of their last four games, while Newcastle have hardly been prolific in attack either and this could well be a tight affair that ends in a stalemate.

Exact score 1-1 @ 19/4

Rafael Benitez has got his side organised defensively and they have managed clean sheets in two of their last three games, but Burnley – as they did last season – should be able to find a way through even if they are finding goals hard to come by.

Only Chelsea and Manchester United have managed shut-outs at Turf Moor this season and although Newcastle’s defence has been fairly solid away, with three clean sheets in five games, a 1-1 exact score bet looks good value in this match-up.

Burnley Under 3.5 shots on target @ 1/1

Burnley haven’t managed more than three shots on target in any of their last five fixtures – explaining their struggles for goals.

It could be a similar story on Monday night and if you’re looking for a statistics-themed bet this looks a solid option.
