No goal glut at Turf Moor

Burnley can make home advantage count on Monday by beating Newcastle United in a low-scoring match at Turf Moor.

The Clarets, so good on home soil last term, have only won one top-flight match on their own ground so far this season, but have triumphed at Chelsea and Everton as well as drawing with Liverpool and Tottenham on their travels.

What a difference to last season when Sean Dyche’s side only won one Premier League match away from home – and that was not until late April at Crystal Palace.

All four of Burnley’s Premier League home wins in 2017 have been by a 1-0 scoreline and the odds on that result occurring again on Monday are good value at 27/4.

Matches at Turf Moor have produced only four goals this season, the fewest in the division, so the chances of a goal glut seem extremely unlikely with a 0-0 draw available at tempting odds of 19/4.

Newcastle start the match eighth in the table despite only scoring ten goals in their first nine Premier League matches of the campaign.

Rafa Benitez will have his side well-organised but the Magpies lack flair and no player has scored more than two goals for them this season.

However, it may be worth a punt on Jamaal Lascelles at 35/4 to score at any time for the visitors while the Clarets’ Ashley Barnes is 7/1 to net the opening goal in the encounter.

Dwight Gayle looks set to return from injury for Newcastle and is 6/4 to score at any time in the match but Burnley have injury concerns over strike duo Chris Wood and Sam Vokes.
