Confirmed NUFC team vs Burnley – Howe makes TWO changes as four January signings start

Following our 2-0 win over Arsenal on Monday night, we face a trip to Burnley in today’s season finale at Turf Moor!

The teams are in ahead of the 4pm kick off, seeing us line up as follos:

STARTING 11: Dubravka, Trippier, Lascelles, Burn, Targett, S Longstaff, Guimaraes, Joelinton, Almiron, Wilson, Saint-Maximin

SUBS: Darlow, Schar, Fernandez, Dummett, Krafth, Ritchie, Murphy, Gayle, Wood.

So, Eddie Howe has made TWO changes from the side that won so impressively earlier this week, seeing Kieran Trippier and Jamaal Lascelles come in for Emil Krafth and Fabian Schar.

Wilson leads the line once again and Almiron keeps his place, with Fraser not fit enough to make the squad after suffering a hamstring niggle in midweek.

Wood is back in the squad after missing Monday’s game at SJP, however Willock and Shelvey remain out with injuries.

Here’s the side the hosts have gone with, seeing Mike Jackson go with a five-man defence and no Wout Weghorst – the man who replaced Chris Wood in January:
