Chris Wood is aiming to score in a fourth straight Premier League match within a single season for the first time.

Burnley have scored a higher share of their PL goals in the opening 15 minutes this season than any other side, with 33 per cent (eight goals out of 24). But they have also conceded a league-high share in the same period, with 25 per cent (10 goals out of 40).

Newcastle United can claim their second PL double over Burnley, after last doing so in 2018/19.

The Magpies have avoided defeat in four of their last five PL matches, and last time out against Spurs they had 22 shots, their joint-highest tally in a PL match this season.
