Burnley 1-4 Newcastle: Magpies roll through Clarets

Alexander Isak scored his 20th goal of the Premier League season and Jacob Murphy set up two goals as Newcastle United smashed Burnley 4-1 at Turf Moor on Saturday.

The safety-chasing Clarets fired out of the gates but Newcastle found its footing in the 20th minute and never looked back in a decisive away win that boosting their top-six hopes and increased Burnley’s relegation worries.


Callum Wilson, Sean Longstaff, and Bruno Guimaraes also scored for the Magpies, who move into sixth with 56 points before Manchester United (54 points) play Monday at Crystal Palace.

Dara O’Shea scored in the 86th minute for Burnley, who had only lost once in their last eight Premier League outings, with two wins and six draws helping Vincent Kompany’s Clarets collect 12 of their 24 season points since early March.

But Saturday’s loss leaves them on 24 points in 19th place, five points behind 17th-place Forest — who won at Sheffield United — and two behind 18th-place Luton Town.

Burnley now have to win at Tottenham and home to Forest, while hoping Forest lose at home to Chelsea and Luton struggle at West Ham and home to Fulham.

Newcastle a total vibes team at the right time

The laundry list of injuries hoisted upon Eddie Howe’s Magpies this made a European return feel unlikely at points this season, but the attacking quality is so good that the points have piled up.

It sure helps that Manchester United and West Ham United have wildly underachieved in the second half of the season, but that disclaimer needs to be followed in bold by the world-class talent of Alexander Isak and Bruno Guimaraes (and, perhaps, an emerging superstar in young Anthony Gordon). The duo will be recruited hard this summer but are electric and capable of performing on the highest stages.

Their goals and playmaking have helped overcome injuries to key pieces like Sven Botman, Kieran Trippier, Joelinton, and Callum Wilson. The last two names were back on the pitch by the end of the game Saturday — Wilson started and played so well with his goal and would-be assist — and reminded everyone that Newcastle’s project might’ve been ahead of schedule last season, but look on that initial schedule now with a possible Europa League qualification.

Too little, too late for Burnley, who are in good Kompany

Will the Clarets, now very likely to go down given Forest’s win over Sheffield United, be able to bounce right back up next season in the Championship? You’d bet on it if they keep manager Vincent Kompany, who will be in demand next season whether Burnley miraculously stay up or go down to the Championship. He’s got good plans but his pieces are good enough. Lorenz Assignon and Maxime Esteve were good additions in January but really needed to come over the summer. Will Kompany stay if a bigger job comes calling?
