Newcastle United round off a season of change on and off the pitch with a visit to Turf Moor on Sunday.

Newcastle United bring down the curtain on an eventful season when they visit relegation-threatened Burnley on Sunday afternoon.

The two sides were viewed as relegation rivals as recently as last month - but the Magpies have soared away from the bottom three with a strong end to the season.

A top-half finish is not out of the question with Eddie Howe’s side currently sat two points adrift of tenth-placed Brighton and Hove Albion, who host West Ham United in their final game of the season.

Burnley remain in relegation trouble as the Clarets head into the game knowing they need to at least match Leeds United’s result in their visit to Brentford to preserve their Premier League status.

What is the team news from both sides?

The Clarets are without midfielder Ashley Westwood and Matej Vydra and have doubts over Ben Mee, Jay Rodriguez and Johann Berg Gudmundsson.

Matt Lowton is suspended following the red card he received in Thursday night’s draw at Aston Villa.

The visitors are without midfield duo Joe Willock and Jonjo Shelvey and Chris Wood and Fabian Schär both returned to training on Thursday.

Eddie Howe will make a late decision on both players, with the latter still under concussion protocol after he was injured in Monday’s home win against Arsenal.

What are the managers saying ahead of the game?

Burnley caretaker manager Mike Jackson said: “It would be a huge achievement from where we were.

“To win three games in 20-odd, that’s not good enough, that’s relegation staring at you. The lads have done well to turn it around and hopefully now we can get this final win at the weekend, get out of there and be safe.”

Newcastle manager Eddie Howe: “We’ll pick our strongest team and try to win the game. There’s no let up from our perspective and we are determined to end the season on a high.

“Tactically, we will try and get it right. We know Burnley is a very difficult game - a totally different challenge because of what is at stake.

What are the latest odds?

Brentford are marginal favourites to claim a win as The Clarets are rated at 6/5 to secure three points and preserve their top tier status.

Newcastle are set at 11/5 with SkyBet and the draw is 12/5.

Where is the game being broadcast?

However, highlights will also be shown on Match of the Day, which will be broadcast on BBC One at 10.30pm on Sunday night.

Prediction

The only pressure on Newcastle is what they put on themselves as they look to round off a spectacular second half to the season with a win at Turf Moor.

The Magpies have already written their names into Premier League history by becoming the first club to remain in the top tier despite not winning in their opening 13 games of the season.

The motivation of securing a top half finish is clear and it would be a fitting reward for Eddie Howe, his coaching staff and the Magpies squad if they were to achieve that with a win on Sunday.

But it can not be ignored they will face a Burnley side still deep in relegation trouble and that could become a key factor in the outcome of the game.

The Clarets will have one eye on events at Brentford as relegation rivals Leeds United have one last throw of the dice in a survival battle that has taken a number of blows in recent weeks.

Prediction: Burnley 2-2 Newcastle United
