Burnley welcome Newcastle to Turf Moor in the Premier League today with the away side looking to end a run of seven games without a win.

Newcastle claimed a surprise point against Tottenham Hotspur last Sunday but the result did little to ease their relegation fears with just eight games to go this season.

Sean Dyche’s Burnley are also in need of three points and are just four points clear of Newcastle following a run of just one win in seven Premier league fixtures.

Steve Bruce’s side beat Burnley 3-1 at St James Park back in October and their match at Turf Moor precedes a run of five games against West Ham, Liverpool, Arsenal, Leicester and Manchester City.

Here’s everything you need to know ahead of today’s match.

What time is it on?

The match kicks off at 12:00 pm GMT on Sunday 11 April.

What is the team news?

Eric Pieters is fit for the hosts after recovering from an injury picked up in Burnley’s 3-2 defeat to Southampton last weekend, while fellow defenders Phil Bardsley and Charlie Taylor are available for selection. Burnley will be without striker Ashley Barnes, winger Robbie Brady and defender Kevin Long.

Steve Bruce has confirmed that Jamaal Lascelles is set to miss the next few weeks with a foot injury but Newcastle could be handed a major boost with Callum Wilson in contention to start following a lengthy spell out on the side-lines with a hamstring tear. Andy Carroll, Federico Fernandez and Ciaran Clark are all in line to return to the team but Ryan Fraser, Fabian Schar and Isaac Hayden remain out.
