After a bit shaky start under the guidance of ex-Real Madrid coach Rafael Benitez, the Magpies are delivering their best performances in the last couple of matches in the Premier League. And with a brilliant performance, they bagged a 2-0 victory in the Newcastle United vs Burnley match at the Premier League last night.
Fabian Schar scored the opener for Newcastle United in the 24th minute of the match. Shortly after, Sean Longstaff scored the second goal for the Magpies to finally seal the 2-0 victory over Burnley. On the other hand, Burnley had quite a few chances to equalize but failed to score any. The second half remained goalless for both the sides even after several nice attempts.

Newcastle United vs Burnley Final Score
Rafael Benitez said, “I was not thinking too much about how many points we could be clear, just to carry on doing what we know we can do well. We went to Spain and trained really well, and we came back and are in the same situation. The players work hard and are keen to do the right things. They want to be solid as a team and be a threat.”
While talking about the performance of Fabian Schar, he said, “He is someone that was training with us and doing well. We knew he would have a chance, he was lucky with our injuries to play sooner than we expected, and he did well, so we kept him in the team.” He then added, “He is working hard and listening to staff and learning, which is the main thing. Having a young lad from the academy is a great example for people to follow. It is ideal for any club to have players through the academy because they are cheaper, and they give you more.”
