A fortunate midweek draw against Aston Villa could be the catalyst for Burnley’s survival. That results puts them in the driver's seat going into the final round of Premier League fixtures for this season. 

Burnley and Leeds are currently level on 35 points, but Leeds’ significantly worse goal difference means Burnley have their fate in their own hands. If they can match or better Leeds’ result against Brentford, they will stay up. It’s that simple. 

The decision to sack Sean Dyche last month was controversial, but if interim appointment Michael Jackson can keep the Clarets in the Premier League it will be viewed as a risk that paid off handsomely. Expect a cracking atmosphere at Turf Moor as the fans attempt to spur the players over the line. 

However, Newcastle won’t be merely making up the numbers. The Magpies are long since safe themselves but have an outside chance of finishing in the top 10 if they secure a victory. As their last fixture against Arsenal proved, Newcastle’s players are most definitely not already on their holidays and will come into this fixture hungry for the three points. 

Here's how they line up:

Burnley: Pope, Taylor, Tarkowski, Collins, Long, Cork, Roberts, McNeil, Brownhill, Barnes, Cornet.

Newcastle: Dubravka, Trippier, Lascelles, Burn, Targett, Longstaff, Guimaraes, Joelinton, Almiron, Wilson, Saint-Maximin.

This year’s Premier League relegation battle has been filled with twists and turns, and there are likely to be a few more on the final day.
