EPL: Newcastle boost survival bid as Man United eye Tottenham revenge-Newcastle did a great job of defending their lives in the Premier League with a crucial 2-1 win at Burnley, while Manchester United prepared for revenge against Tottenham on Sunday.

Matej Vydra put Burnley ahead in the first half, but Jacob Murphy pulled away and Allan Saint-Maximin won an expensive winner.

Fourth-placed Newcastle are currently six points adrift of the relegation zone and extended the game to third in Fulham.

Burnley are seven points adrift of the bottom three, but are unsure of their survival after just one win from their last eight games.

The hosts took the lead in the 18th minute when Ashley Westwood stopped with a head injury from Newcastle defender Ciaran Clark.

Westwood played with Chris Wood pulling the ball out of the mark for Vydra to be an average from close range.

But French Saint-Maximin changed the game when it came as the 57th minute.

Saint-Maximin went down to his right and pulled three defenders in front of him before firing the ball back for Murphy to equalize in the 59th minute.

Five minutes later, Saint-Maximin made an incredible effort as he ran in Burnley’s defense before heading over to Bailey Peacock-Farrell.
