Benitez issues stark warning for Almiron after impressive home debut

Newcastle midfielder Jonjo Shelvey gives the thumbs

In the previous meeting, Burnley was seriously threatened by relegation as they found themselves in the bottom three, but now they are a side that just defeated Tottenham and drew with Manchester United at Old Trafford.

They report that so far Newcastle have only guaranteed £16m for the striker.

Miguel Almiron, making his first start for Newcastle after his club record 20 million-pound ($26.1 million) move from Atlanta United, received a standing ovation at St James' Park when he came off after tormenting Huddersfield's defence for 80 minutes. Saturday's 2-1 victory over title contenders Spurs made it eight games unbeaten for Sean Dyche's men, five of which have been won. This game suited his attacking tendencies and he made the most of it. Newcastle's odds of winning will increase significantly if they can score in the first half hour.

"The priority is to stay up and focus on the team".

DeAndre Yedlin (Newcastle): With Huddersfield offering little in the way of attacking threat, the American was able to get forward at will and was central in both goals, feeding the ball into unsafe areas where it was asking to be finished.

That's been the case in exactly half (7 of 14) of Burnley's away games this season, which is pretty remarkable when you consider how poor they were defensively earlier in the campaign.

One change for Burnley as well.

A wonderful counter-attack nearly saw Almiron claim a goal early on, his dinked finish over Jonas Lossl striking the left-hand post, which Rondon then rattled on the follow up.

- Newcastle mustered 29 shots, their most in a Premier League game since attempting 32 against Swansea City in November 2012.

52' - GOAL! Newcastle 2-0 Huddersfield (Perez).

While Burnley look sure to provide him with a stiffer test, the forward shouldn't be 9/1 to open the scoring when you consider he's playing for the home team, who are close to even-money favourites.
