Pundit thinks Newcastle United will be held to draw by Burnley

Newcastle United are on a positive run in the Premier League given that they are three games unbeaten.

Before the season began, there was concern over the Magpies’ ability to keep up in the survival fight due to a lack of summer signings.

However, Rafael Benitez and his men find themselves in eighth place after nine games, which have consisted of four wins, two draws and three defeats.

As it stands, the club are five points adrift of fourth-placed Chelsea and six above the drop zone.

This evening, the North-East outfit face a team that have just one point fewer than themselves and have picked up some big results.

Sean Dyche has guided the Clarets to wins over Chelsea and Everton, as well as draws against Liverpool and Tottenham Hotspur.

Michael Owen, who played for Newcastle between 2005 and 2009, has given his predictions with BetVictor, backing a draw.

The Chronicle quotes the retired striker as saying:

“The Clarets have drawn 4 of their last 6 and Monday’s game looks to have draw written all over it. Newcastle continue to impress under Rafa Benitez and, although the Magpies are winless in their last four trips to Turf Moor, they should be good value for a point.”
