Newcastle almost condemns Burnley, Nottingham Forest breathes

In England, this is becoming a bit of a habit at the end of the season. Last week, Newcastle made Sheffield United’s descent into the Championship official by inflicting a scathing 5-1 on the Blades. This Saturday, the Magpies had Burnley on their way. 19th, Vincent Kompany’s men absolutely needed a victory at home to maintain their slim hopes of remaining. And in front of a disgusted Turf Moor, Newcastle rolled over their opponent, giving him no respite. While Callum Wilson opened the scoring in the 19th minute (0-1), Burnley gave in just before the break with two goals from Sean Longstaff (35th) and Bruno Guimaraes (40th).

Returning from the locker room, Eddie Howe’s gang continued their mission of destruction and gunner Alexander Isak scored his goal (0-4, 55th) to allow his team to climb to sixth place. O’Shea’s reduction of the gap at the end of the match changed nothing (1-4, 87th). With this defeat, Burnley is five points behind the first non-relegation place, Nottingham Forest, who won this Saturday in Sheffield (1-3). Two days from the end, this victory for the Trees, acquired thanks in particular to a double from Callum Hudson-Odoi, offers them a nice breath of fresh air. In the last meeting at 4 p.m. across the Channel, there was no winner between Brentford and Fulham (0-0).

4 p.m. matches in the Premier League:

  • Burnley 1-4 Newcastle : O’Shea (87th) / Wilson (19th), Longstaff (35th), Guimaraes (40th), Isak (55th)
  • Brentford 0-0 Fulham
  • Sheffield 1-3 Nottingham Forest : Brereton Diaz (17th, sp) / Hudson-Odoi (27th, 65th), Yates (51st)
