Draw

Newcastle and Burnley have limped out of the blocks in 2021/22, suffering defeat in each of their first two Premier League matches respectively and with confidence low in both camps, Wednesday’s game could develop into a tentative tussle where both sides emphasise not losing instead of winning. Three of the last five meetings between the clubs at St. James’ Park have ended in stalemate and this week’s Carabao Cup clash could follow a similar pattern.

Both Teams to Score

A both teams to score wager would have landed in each of Newcastle and Burnley’s last two meetings and the same bet could return dividends again on Wednesday. The Magpies and the Clarets’ defending has been worryingly subpar so far this season and a clear sheet looks beyond both backlines’ capabilities at present. We expect gilt-edged chances to be offered up by both faltering rearguards in the north east, so back goals to be notched at either end again.

Burnley Double Chance

The 2021/22 season is still in its infancy, however, the atmosphere at St. James’ Park is already threatening to turn toxic following two defeats in two games for Newcastle. The Clarets – who have avoided defeat in four of their last six trips to play the Magpies – will know that a fast start on Wednesday will crank up the pressure on the under-fire Newcastle players, and Sean Dyche’s men are wily enough to take advantage of the tension.

Newcastle vs Burnley: Match Preview

Newcastle

It’s all doom and gloom again on Tyneside following Newcastle’s dismal start to the Premier League campaign and the Magpies will be desperate to restore some positivity in the Carabao Cup this week. Steve Bruce already looks a man under pressure in the dugout and Newcastle’s showing at Aston Villa at the weekend was alarmingly abject.

Burnley

Burnley were blitzed by Liverpool on Saturday in a 2-0 reverse at Anfield that could have been double that had the hosts been a little more clinical. The Clarets have played without any spark so far this season and their long-ball philosophy under Sean Dyche looks more antiquated than ever against their slick-passing counterparts in the Premier League.
