Given the venerable traditions of both clubs, their meetings have been infrequent and Burnley have to go all the way back to 1976 since they last won in Newcastle, a 1-0 victory earned by virtue of Peter Noble.

James Tarkowski and Ben Mee are recognisable again as the pair who did so well last season, while up front Dyche has finally found a partnership to work for him with Chris Wood and Ashley Barnes both excellent against Tottenham.

With their lack of goal power, Newcastle - [2.14] for victory - may well struggle to break down a Burnley side who look a lot more organised than they did a few months back.

But asked about supporters' concerns, he said: "I think they will be happy if we get three points against Burnley".

Newcastle may have had those recent home wins but I remain unconvinced by their creativity against better opposition - their win against Man City hardly saw them churning out regular chances - and I can see them foundering on the defensive rock of Burnley. 13 and a half years, to be exact.

"Now he has to learn in the Premier League to understand what the physicality of the game means here, but I think he has the right mentality". He swiftly plays it inside, where Perez and Hayden get in one anther's way, but the ball runs to Rondon and he fires home.

A wonderful counter-attack nearly saw Almiron claim a goal early on, his dinked finish over Jonas Lossl striking the left-hand post, which Rondon then rattled on the follow up.

Newcastle extended their lead six minutes later when Perez beat Lossl from Rondon's knock-down to leave the visitors in deep trouble.

Just over five minutes later the points were effectively sealed as Yedlin and Rondon combined after Almiron's pass and Perez volleyed into the bottom-left corner.

The Spurs striker almost marked his return with a goal as he cut in from the right before drilling a left-footed effort just wide of the upright on 15 minutes.
