Burnley v Newcastle tips: Spoils set to be shared?

Ahead of the action, we’ve got all the keys odds and talking points…
Newcastle come into this one on the back of two straight wins. They’ve never beaten Burnley in the Premier League, but our traders give them a slight edge at 8/5.
Burnley will be looking to end a five-game run without a win here. They’re 15/8 to get the points.
Newcastle may have the momentum, but neither side is going to risk leaving themselves open. The draw is going for 2/1.
Both side’s tactics are built on keeping things tight defensively. But Burnley haven’t been as solid as usual recently. They’ve shipped at least four goals in three of their last four outings. Salomon Rondon’s physicality could cause real problems for them.
Sean Dyche will hope that Johann Gudmundsson is fit to play a part here. He’s been involved in six of Burnley’s 12 league goals this term.
If the Iceland international isn’t fit to play, Aaron Lennon’s dribbling could target Newcastle’s left side. Rafa Benitez may have to deploy Javier Manquillo there, with Paul Dummett a doubt.
Sam Vokes leads the way as a 5/1 First Goalscorer, with teammates Ashley Barnes and Chris Wood close behind at 11/2.
Jeff Hendrick scored the only goal in this fixture last season. He’s 7/2 to get on the scoresheet again.
