Monday night’s Premier League action comes from Turf Moor, where Burnley take on Newcastle United.

Sean Dyche’s side head in to the game just a place above the bottom three, after both Crystal Palace and Huddersfield Town leapfrogged them at the weekend due to positive results at Manchester United and Wolverhampton Wanderers respectively.

A win for the Clarets would see them move up to fourteenth, or even thirteenth if they triumph by five goals or more.

James Tarkowski is a doubt after undergoing hernia surgery during the international break while Steven Defour could be available despite fears that he had re-injured his knee and Johann Berg Gudmunsson is back after a calf problem.

Sam Vokes is priced at 7.5 (13/2) to get the first goal of the game, ahead of Jeff Hendrick, who is widely available at 13.0 (12/1).

The home win can be backed at 3.1 (21/10) with Bet Victor, with the visitors as highly priced as the 2.7 (17/10) on offer from several firms. The draw can be backed at 3.15 (28/13) with Unibet.

Like their opponents, the visitors have nine points to their name, with seven of those coming in their last three games.
They have a superior goal difference to the rest of the sides in the bottom eight of the division so will rise to thirteenth with what would be a third straight victory here, something they haven’t achieved since April.

Paul Dummet is unavailable after picking up a calf injury on international duty while Jamaal Lascelles, Jonjo Shelvey and Yoshinori Muto all face late fitness tests ahead of the game.

Salomon Rondon is 7.5 (13/2) to open the scoring, with Ayoze Perez a 9.5 (17/2) shot with some companies.

Jeff Hendrick scored the only goal of the game in last season’s corresponding fixture while a late own goal from Karl Darlow gave Burnley a share of the spoils when they met at St James’s Park in January.

There has been fewer than three goals in five of the last six meetings between the sides so you many be tempted to back that outcome this time around at 1.62 (8/13) while William Hill offer a price of 2.0 (1/1) for both teams to score.
