The Clarets extended their unbeaten Premier League run to six games as goalkeeper Nick Pope racked up another clean sheet in front of watching England boss Gareth Southgate.

 In truth, Pope has had more demanding games in reaching 11 shut-outs for the season – the highest figure for an individual keeper in the top tier.

 But he was still a model of calmness and serenity as he stood tall to extend Newcastle’s goal drought and make it three games without defeat on the road for the Clarets, who moved up to ninth in the table.

 The big ‘leap’ to 40 points didn’t quite materalise on the year’s extra day.
 
 But another notch up the ladder was still a welcome one as Burnley’s mean streak came to the fore on a day of few real chances – other than that of Pope and his defensive colleagues to show Southgate they remain in top form ahead of the March international dates.  

 It had been 28 years since the Clarets last played on 29 February and 10 years longer since they had been to St James’ Park on a Saturday.

 And rarely in that period have they had it so good as Dyche’s side looked to extend their unbeaten run and reach the landmark that would surely secure a fifth successive season of top-flight football.

Neil Warnock was the SKY pundit covering the game in the studio...did you really drag me all the way up from Cornwall for that?' he grumbled.
Yep and paid him as well.. nice work if you can get it.

Saw that DT he said he could talk more about his chicken mayo sandwich than he could about the game.

Oh dear JRod,you should have finished off that very very easy chance when you was clean through instead of hesitating when the Lino put his flag up thinking you was offside ..VAR proved that the ball was passed back to you ..Please put them in the net in future and let this silly VAR make the decisions .. We have drawn two gámes now and you could have won both for us instead of missing glaring chances.. Promise me you will Buck up against the Spuds.. Another two points dropped.. We could have been in a European slot if we had put them away..
