Dan Burn is a pal of mine when it comes to overpriced centre-backs throughout a wide range of markets. He’s not fairly on my dream centre-back banquet listing simply but (Shane Duffy, Harry Maguire, Gareth McAuley, Yerry Mina and Craig Dawson in case you are asking) however which will change if he delivers this weekend.
The Geordie boy has been sensational since becoming a member of from Brighton however what would put the cherry on the cake can be a objective at St James’ Park – each fan’s dream. I believe Sunday could possibly be the day for Burn up towards this Leicester defence which have improved with the return of Jonny Evans and Wesley Fofana however nonetheless don’t persuade me when defending set-pieces. The Foxes have conceded 16 Premier League objectives from set-pieces (excluding penalties) this season – the joint-most with Leeds.
Good high quality probabilities have fallen Burn’s approach in his 9 begins for Newcastle, which have equated to an anticipated objectives determine of 0.73. Should the tallest participant within the Premier League who has scored a header already this season and performs for a team which have scored 13 of their 34 objectives this season from set-pieces, actually be 25/1 to rating one other? I might argue no. He’s the worth participant to rating a header in a good affair.
SCORE PREDICTION: 1-1 | BETTING ANGLE: Dan Burn to score a header (25/1 with Sky Bet – Bet Here!)
- Newcastle have misplaced 9 of their final 12 Premier League video games towards Leicester (W3). Their earlier 9 league defeats towards the Foxes got here throughout a interval of 39 video games (W19 D11) between 1979 and 2014.

Jones Knows prediction
If this was a run chase, Burnley have fallen approach behind on their required run charge. They can not block and push for singles. It’s time for the manager-less Clarets to swing for the boundaries if they’re to catch Everton and Leeds above them.
Draws will not do. They should add to their pathetic tally of simply 4 wins – and this sport will likely be seen as a chance to accomplish that with West Ham’s Europa League commitments inflicting points with their Premier League kind.
This change of mentality to taking part in “must-win” soccer within the final two matches has seen a constructive impact on Burnley’s attacking metrics – one thing that can proceed to spike over the following few weeks. Games have been rather more open affairs with their previous two video games seeing 5 objectives scored and a complete anticipated objectives determine of 8.71 when collating each groups.
Travelling to face a West Ham facet whose video games on the London Stadium common 3.13 objectives and have seen each groups rating 75 per cent of the time this season, does give this sport the look of a goals-heavy one. The markets have the objective line round 2.5 objectives, which I believe is simply too low. This means we should assault the overs with confidence at Evens.
I additionally need to throw Burnley’s nook rely into the combination. They gained 9 towards Everton and seven of their defeat to Norwich – one other signal their attacking intent has gone up a notch. Only Aston Villa and Southampton have gained extra corners within the Premier League since March 1 than Burnley and that included a fixture with Manchester City the place they gained only one. Take that sport out and they’re averaging 7.2 corners per 90 minutes.
Therefore, Sky Bet’s strains on Burnley corners are value backing. Those that like thumping into quick costs ought to check out Burnley to win 4 corners at 4/6 with Sky Bet as West Ham have conceded a minimum of 4 corners of their 9 Premier League video games however I’m pushing the boat out slightly additional by attacking the six or extra nook line at a big 3/1 with Sky Bet.
SCORE PREDICTION: 1-2 | BETTING ANGLE: Burnley to win six or more corners (3/1 with Sky Bet – Bet Here!)
JONES KNOWS BEST BET: Over 2.5 goals and six or more Burnley corners (13/2 with Sky Bet – Bet Here!)
- West Ham have failed to rating in 5 of their final eight Premier League video games towards Burnley (W3 D1 L4), having discovered the online in every of their first seven towards the Clarets (W5 D1 L1).
- Burnley have gained two of their final 4 Premier League away video games towards West Ham, as many as that they had of their earlier 21 league visits to Upton Park/London Stadium (D4 L15).
- West Ham have earned 25 factors from their final 27 accessible in dwelling video games towards sides within the relegation zone (W8 D1 L0), successful every of the final six in a row. Their final such defeat was towards Newcastle in December 2017.
- West Ham have scored in every of their final 17 Premier League dwelling video games, with the Hammers final having an extended such run within the top-flight between October 1985 and January 1987 (27 video games).
