Commentary

That's all for now though, goodbye!
The result means that Burnley finish in 18th and are relegated from the Premier League. Newcastle finish 11th.
Burnley are relegated from the Premier League following a 2-1 defeat to Newcastle. Burnley were hit by an early blow when Collins handled in the area, allowing Wilson to score from the spot. Burnley fought hard throughout, but a lack of quality in the final third limited them significantly. And it got worse for them when Saint-Maximin teed Wilson up for his second. The hosts pulled one back through Cornet and threw everything at finding an equaliser, but ultimately they came up just short.
90' + 5' FULL-TIME: BURNLEY 1-2 NEWCASTLE UNITED
90' + 4' There is news of a Leeds winner at Brentford. Burnley are not going to have enough to stay up even if they can equalise in the final seconds.
90' + 3' Cornet and Weghorst force a string of saves from Dubravka, but it wouldn't have counted - the linesman belated raised his flag. Burnley are just starting to run out of time.
90' + 1' Four minutes of stoppage time are added as Burnley continue to throw everything at finding the goal that would keep them up.
M. Ritchie
M. Almirón
89' Almiron is replaced by Ritchie as Newcastle look to tighten their grip on this game.
87' SAVE! Taylor swings in a deep cross and Cornet rises highest to steer a header towards the far corner! However, Dubravka acrobatically leaps to keep it out.
85' MISS! Newcastle waste a glorious opportunity to wrap the game up. Guimaraes wriggles through on goal after excellent work by Wood, but he slips at the vital moment and Burnley clear!
83' Burnley win a succession of corners, but Newcastle repel each one.
82' The Newcastle defence is fighting hard as McNeil and Cork both have shots blocked away.
80' Brentford have equalised against Leeds - Burnley now need just one goal to stay up as things stand.
78' MISS! It's a huge moment for Burnley: Barnes gets to the byline and hammers in a low cross towards the six-yard box, Weghorst lunges to try and tap it in, but he can't make a firm enough contact and trickles wide!
76' Off the line! Cornet rises highest to direct a header at goal, but Lascelles is there to hook it off the line! The resulting corner amounts to nothing.
74' The home fans are roaring Burnley on as they hurl cross after cross into the Newcastle box.
A. Lennon
J. Brownhill
73' Brownhill is replaced by Lennon for the hosts.
C. Wood
A. Saint-Maximin
72' Saint-Maximin heads off with Wood coming on.
71' Well, Burnley have given themselves hope. With Leeds still winning, Burnley require two more goals yet.
M. Cornet
Goal
69' GOAL! CORNET! 2-1. Burnley pull one back. Collins picks out Cornet with a low cross, the attacker fires one shot at Dubravka, before pouncing on the rebound and drilling it in from 10 yards!
68' Another Burnley move grinds to a halt as Murphy snatches possession away from Brownhill.
66' Burnley are still pushing for a way back into this game, but it's going to take something spectacular now.
J. Tarkowski
Yellow Card
65' Tarkowski is booked after a reckless challenge on Wood.
64' Wilson has scored his eighth goal this season today, more than any other Newcastle player in the Premier League.
62' Well, it's looking gloomy for Burnley. Not only are they 2-0 down, but with Leeds going 1-0 up against Brentford, Burnley now need a huge turnaround to stay up.
A. Saint-Maximin
Assist
60' It was a superb assist from Saint-Maximin. He carried it dangerously into the Burnley half, before keeping his composure and finding Wilson for the striker's second goal today.
C. Wilson
Goal
60' And Wilson doubles Newcastle's lead! 2-0. Saint-Maximin leads a counter-attack for the visitors and drives into the area, before drilling it towards the six-yard box where Wilson is on hand to guide a precise finish into the bottom corner!
59' CHANCE! Saint-Maximin sends Almiron clean through on goal and - despite having Wilson for support - the attacker blazes a wild strike over the bar!
58' The second half has continued in the same vein as the first. Burnley are working hard to try and find a route back into this game, but they're lacking quality in the final third.
56' Burn eventually clears Brownhill's corner after a number of attempts.
54' The more Burnley push for an equaliser, the more dangerous Saint-Maximin will become. This time, though, Brownhill is able to get back and dispossess him.
52' Taylor gets into a good crossing position but sends it high and wide.
50' Newcastle's recent form is ominous for Burnley. They're unbeaten in their last eight Premier League matches when leading at half-time (W6, D2) dating back to 15th August 2021 against West Ham United (L2-4).
48' Tarkowski requires treatment after being caught by Guimaraes. He should be able to run it off though.
W. Weghorst
C. Roberts
46' Burnley make an attacking change: Weghorst comes on for Roberts.
46' Newcastle kick off the second half.
With Leeds currently drawing, Burnley will know that unless they find a goal in the second half, they'll be facing relegation.
Burnley trail at half-time. This has been a tight, cagey game throughout, but one lapse in concentration gave Newcastle the lead. Pope flapped at Guimaraes' corner and Collins panicked at the back post, handling the cross. VAR intervened to award a penalty and Wilson calmly stepped up to give the visitors the lead. Burnley fought hard from there, but they failed to really open Newcastle up. They have a lot of work to do if they're to overturn the one-goal deficit in the second half.
45' + 5' HALF-TIME: BURNLEY 0-1 NEWCASTLE UNITED
45' + 4' SAVE! Saint-Maximin races away on the break and beats Collins before finding himself through on goal! The attacker places a shot towards the bottom corner from eight yards, but Pope gets down to tip it away.
45' + 2' Five minutes of stoppage time are added on.
45' McNeil dribbles towards the edge of the box before firing a powerful effort straight at Dubravka.
43' Newcastle continue to manage the game well, as they knock it around slowly as we approach half-time.
41' Burnley have still only produced one shot so far today. If they're to turn this around, they'll need to improve significantly.
38' Roberts sends in a low cross but Barnes can't quite get there and Newcastle clear.
36' Burnley have struggled to find any rhythm in this half. They desperately need to get a foothold in this game and soon.
34' Saint-Maximin dribbles ominously into the box, but Collins and Roberts combined to halt his progress.
32' Burnley fly forward with a two-on-two on the break, but Roberts's pass into the six-yard box is cut out by Burn.
30' Almiron wins a promising free-kick near the touchline. Trippier whips it in, but he gets too much power on the cross and it sails away for a throw-in.
28' McNeil's corner is plucked out of the sky by Dubravka in a crowded six-yard box.
26' Tarkowski fires a long ball over the top in search of Cornet, but it's too powerful and it runs behind for a goal kick.
24' It's been a tight game so far, but one lapse in judgement has given Newcastle that all-important lead.
22' Well, it's a very worrying goal for Burnley. Leeds are currently drawing with Brentford, and as things stand, Burnley will be getting relegated.
C. Wilson
Penalty Goal
20' GOALLL! WILSON! 1-0. Wilson steps up confidently and sends Pope the wrong way before rolling it calmly into the back of the net!
19' Penalty to Newcastle! Pope makes a poor contact on his punch from Guimaraes' corner and he flick it to the back post, where Collins appears to push the ball to safety with his hand! The referee doesn't pick up on it initially, but a penalty is awarded after a check with VAR.
17' Save! Guimaraes hits an awkward 20-yard effort towards the bottom corner that Pope anxiously pushes to safety!
15' The pause for Joelinton's injury has taken the pace out of this game - Newcastle are currently gently knocking it around, searching for an opening.
13' That injury's a bitter blow for Joelinton, who had transformed himself for Newcastle this season. Unfortunately, it looks as though it'll keep him out for a long time.
J. Murphy
Joelinton
11' Joelinton is stretchered off with Murphy taking his place.
7' Joelinton goes down in the middle of the pitch after landing awkwardly following an aerial dual. It looks like a serious injury and he won't be able to continue.
5' Newcastle settle into the game with a long spell of defensive possession inside their own half.
3' Taylor almost gets in behind the Newcastle defence following Brownhill's pass down the line, but it just rolls out of play.
1' Burnley kick off the first half.
The players are emerging from the tunnel and kick off is just seconds away!
