It’s been a brilliant start from Newcastle who have looked well organised and dangerous going forward.

Sean Dyche looks beside himself on the touchline. 

23 mins: Newcastle in dreamland here.

A corner is quickly taken on the right and Ritchie swings in a left-footed cross into the box where Ciaran Clark is on hand to glance a fine header into the far corner. 

Chris Wood decideds to let one fly form 25 yards and almost catches Martin Dubravka out. 

The forwards powerful effort is straight down the throat of the Burnley stopper who awkwardly palms the ball out in front of him before his defence clears the danger.

Both teams trying to play a passing game at the moment. The visitors find Matt Ritchie in space on the left but his cross is easily headed to safety.

Newcastle doing a good job of pressuring the Clarets when they have the ball.

That goal has really brought the home crowd to life. Turf Moor is rocking as the Burnley fans try to spark a response from their team.

It’s having the desired effect as the hosts continue to push forward but Newcastle are holding firm so far.

4 mins: Huge slice of luck for the visitors gives them the early lead!

The ball falls to Federico Fernandez on the edge of the box and the defender’s side footed effort takes a huge deflection off Ben Mee before flies into the top right corner.Nothing Joe Hart could do about that. The Magpies’ earliest Premier League away goal for six years.

Burnley get us underway.

Kick-off at Turf Moor has been pushed back by half an hour until 8.30pm after referees’ assessor Eddie Wolstenholme collapsed in the tunnel.

Wolstenholme was taken to hospital conscious but referee Anthony Taylor and the Premier League decided to delay the start of the match.

Wolstenholme was formerly a Premier League referee who retired from officiating in 2003.

Both teams are looking to put some breathing space between themselves and the relegation zone tonight.

They each sit just one point above the bottom three with the Magpies higher up the table due to a superior goal difference.

Sean Dyche hopes Burnley can continue the improvement they showed against Leicester before the international break when they resume their campaign at home to Newcastle on Monday.

The Clarets put a three-game losing run, during which they conceded 13 goals, behind them by holding the Foxes to a goalless draw at the King Power Stadium.

Dyche said: ‘I thought the structure of the side was better. I thought it looked more like what we look like on a consistent level of performance. There’s still more to come.

‘I think we showed a lot of signs of continued belief in the growth, and literal growth in performances, last season, that’s stuttered a bit at the beginning of this season, for many different reasons I feel.

‘We know where the team is statistically and we know that still needs adjusting but, for the last number of weeks, we are showing signs of getting back to where we want to be. We know we still need to do more on the offensive side.’

Rafa Benitez insists records are there to be broken after being informed of Newcastle’s 10-match Premier League losing streak in front of the live television cameras on a Monday night.

Benitez said: ‘The records are there to be broken, so we have to change this, it’s as simple as that.

‘The record doesn’t matter. You go there and how many of these players were playing the first game when they lost? Was the league the same or was it different? The numbers change every year, so it’s good for writing something, but it doesn’t change too much for us.’
