Please reload the page for new updates – this page does not automatically refresh.

A point that Burnley will be very happy with. Newcastle less so having missed a penalty and created a few decent openings. The Burnley goal is being given as an OG to Karl Darlow, incidentally.

Final Score: Newcastle United 1-1 Burnley

90+3 mins – Last chance for Burnley to load the ball into the box but it’s cleared

89 mins – All Burnley now as we head for 4 added minutes

84 mins – Dwight Gayle is on for Ayoze Perez.


Sam Vokes heads in from an inswinging corner. There’s some debate about whether it should have been a corner but it was poorly defended

81 mins – Final Burnley substitution, with N’Koudou replacing Gudmundsson

77 mins – It’s a much more open game now. Paul Dummett fires over from a corner

72 mins – Vokes is booked after a clash from a long ball 71 mins – This is why Newcastle are trying to get Slimani. Joselu has a clear sight of goal but he screws his shot wide.

70 mins – Second BUrnley sub, with Sam Vokes replacing Ashley Westwood. Shortly afterwards Newcastle replace Kenedy with Matt Ritchie.

65 mins – Burnley have never won when they concede the first goal in the Premier League under Sean Dyche 64 mins – GOAL FOR NEWCASTLE CAPTAIN FANTASTIC! Lascelles leaps to head in a corner from the right. Newcastle lead!

63 mins – Jacob Murphy replaces Atsu for Newcastle

62 mins – Looks like an elbow from Ashley Barnes but it’s just a yellow card 58 mins – Aaron Lennon is on for Scott Arfield 56 mins – Updates whilst I can. Barnes blazed over a great chance for Burnley, Newcastle looking the more positive otherwise KICK OFF – Second half back underway I’m off inside but I’ll be back to resume wifi battle in 15. Joselu’s penalty was poor

HALF TIME – Newcastle 0–0 Burnley

45+1 mins – Crikey, what a hit. Burnley nearly score with the last kick of the half but it’s inches wide from fully 30 yards

45 mins – 1 added minute

41 mins – Newcastle, like my wifi, are finishing the half strongly. Diame tries a ridiculous overhead and misses

38 mins – Good tip over from Pope to deny Clark, who got free with a back post header.

33 minsPENALTY SAVED (Joselu) Low to the keeper’s left, easy save from Nick Pope

33 minsPENALTY TO NEWCASTLE Kenedy is tripped by Phil Bardsley and it’s a stonewall penalty. Newcastle’s first of the season. Joselu has the ball…

30 minsYELLOW CARD DeAndre Yedlin goes in the book for a late one on

23 mins – Carnage as Burnley want a penalty then Ashley Barnes has one disallowed for a push. It all started with a free kick into the box which Kevin Long fails to connect properly with when well placed to score. Moments later Barnes finishes neatly from a little chip into the box but he’s pushed his man and it’s ruled out. Doesn’t stop him celebrating before he is pulled up to ironic cheers.

17 mins – Hits the post! Kenedy on his debut cuts in from the right but his shot is tipped on to the post by Pope.

15 mins – Clumsy tackle from Joselu but no card given. He’s always kind of clumsy

10 mins – You’ve missed nothing but wifi problems

19:45 We’re off!

19:40 Here come the teams, both in reality and on paper

19:35 DEADLINE DAY It is of course bi-annual yellow tie day, and Newcastle are looking to wrap up moves for Islam Slimani and Martin Dubravka on loan, having already signed Kenedy on loan from Chelsea who makes his debut tonight. Burnley moved for Aaron Lennon and Georges-Kevin N’Koudou, also both on loan and the pair are substitutes tonight 19:30 15 minutes to kick off. Both teams are out warming up, which seems like a brilliant idea. 19:25 It’s not exactly brilliant for Burnley either. They haven’t won yet this year and could lose their opening five competitive matches of a calendar year for the first time since 1932. If you’re a fan of omens, which let’s face it we have to cling to, Burnley are winless in all 50 PL matches with Sean Dyche as manager when they have conceded first. So score first. 19:20 Some highlights:

  • Newcastle are winless in 7 Premier League home games
  • Newcastle have failed to score in 5 of those matches
  • Newcastle have won only one point out of a possible 33 in PL matches this season against teams that begin this round of fixtures in the top half.

19:15 I’ve been given a lovely match pack here, which makes the notes I made last night largely redundant. However, it is full of stats that look like bad news for Newcastle. They also back up why I’m not expecting a classic here tonight. Let me regail you with a few… 19:10 So that’s 8 changes from Newcastle’s FA Cup defeat to Chelsea, with only Darlow, Lascelles and Clark surviving. Burnley make two changes, with Westwood and Long in for Defour and Tarkowski

19:00 Better late than never (I’m new to press boxes. Cut me some slack) here are the teams:

NUFC: Darlow, Clark, Dummett, Lascelles (c), Yedlin, Kenedy, Atsu, Diame, Merino, Perez, Joselu. Subs: Murphy, Shelvey, Gayle, Ritchie, Hayden, Manquillo, Woodman

BFC: Pope, Bardsley, Taylor, Mee (c), Long, Gudmundsson, Arfield, Hendrick, Westwood, Cork, Barnes. Subs: Lowton, N’Koudou, Vokes, Ulvestad, Wells, Lindegaard, Lennon

18:45 I’m live at St. James’ Park to bring you Newcastle United vs Burnley. It might* be a classic
