Newcastle United vs Burnley – Key Players
Salomon Rondon has shown signs of good link-up play with new signing Miguel Almiron, and their combination play will be crucial against a well-drilled Burnley defence.
A solid defensive partnership between Mee and Tarkowski was good enough to keep the Spurs attackers at bay. They will have to be on their toes to keep their side out of harm’s way in the next match as well.
Chris Wood and Ashley Barnes had a very good outing in the last match, and they’ll have to test the Magpies defence with their aerial prowess.
