Ashley Westwood's landmark goal not enough as Clarets suffer third successive defeat

 Ashley Westwood marked his 100th Premier League appearance for the Clarets with a superb goal but it wasn’t enough to help Burnley earn a first point of the season to take into the international break.

 Westwood volleyed in a classy equaliser as the Clarets looked to repair the damage of a disappointing first-half performance which saw Newcastle lead through Allan Saint-Maximin.

 But rather than set the stage for a successful comeback, Westwood's moment of inspiration proved the high point of a poor night on Tyneside as Newcastle swiftly hit back to seal their first home victory with a Callum Wilson double.

 The Clarets hadn’t won a top-flight game on Tyneside since 1976 and the early omens weren’t good as they looked to amend that record.

 Despite welcoming back both James Tarkowski and Ashley Barnes to Premier League duty, Burnley looked out of sorts bar an early break which saw Dwight McNeil’s low drive pushed around a post by Karl Darlow.
