Newcastle United fans gear up for Burnley showdown

The final game of the Premier League weekend belongs to Burnley and Newcastle United, as the pair prepare to go head to head at Turf Moor.

Rafael Benitez’s side are in good shape heading into the fixture as they are unbeaten in their last three top-flight outings.

In fact, the North-East outfit have been on the losing side just once in their last seven matches in the league.

The most recent meeting was against bottom side Crystal Palace at St James’ Park, which witnessed a 1-0 win for the hosts.

The last match between Newcastle and Burnley was on New Year’s Day in 2015, and the contest ended in a dramatic 3-3 draw.

The Magpies had the lead three times, but failed to hold on as George Boyd found an 86th-minute equaliser.

Ahead of this evening’s match, the fans are keeping their fingers crossed that Benitez’s men will come away with all three points.

Joselu, who joined Newcastle in the summer, also took to Twitter to express his excitement for the match, and understandably, the fans are backing him to score.
