Dan Burn reflects on defeat to Liverpool ahead of Manchester City clash

Dan Burn will have a new partner in the center of Newcastle’s defense this weekend at the Etihad. With Fabien Schär injured last Saturday after James Milner left a mark on him, Jamaal Lascelles will most likely take the second central position in Sunday’s game.

Lascelles wastes no time in making it abundantly clear that the Toon are in for a real fight this weekend against City, as reported by the chronic and echoed here today. also talking to the chronicBurn was joined by captain Jamaal Lascelles to share his thoughts on the loss to Liverpool last Saturday and the upcoming game against Pep’s Men.

On Liverpool’s 1-0 defeat at St James’ Park, Burn had words of encouragement to say.

“There is no shame in being beaten by Liverpool.”

“[Liverpool] and City are probably the two best teams in the world right now [and] that’s where we want to be, so it was a bit of a measure to see how far we are.

“Only its quality […]Anyone who plays with the five world-class players they have can cause problems for teams.

“[Liverpool] they probably weren’t at their best [on Saturday] but they still add points. We could have given them more trouble than we did, but they are one of the best teams.”

“There is no shame in being beaten by Liverpool.”

Burn also acknowledged the recent change in attitude coming from the Geordie Army at St James’ Park with the team turning their putrid start to the season upside down, saying “[St James’ Park] It’s a good place to play on the minute with the atmosphere, all the flags and everything.”

Burn arrived on Tyneside last January with the Magpies taking advantage of the winter transfer window to bring in defensive reinforcements. That unit, in turn, has become Newcastle’s strongest line through the second half of the season. Since he made his black-and-white debut on February 13, the Magpies have conceded more than a goal just once (0-5 v Tottenham), while Burn has started – and never left the pitch – all 13 games since. .

The defender even assisted Bruno Guimaraes’ game-winning goal against Southampton on March 10. It’s not his calling card, but there is that bonus in case you need it, which, to be honest, the Magpies surely welcomed back then.

Turns out Burn will be celebrating his 30th birthday next Monday so hopefully he ends the weekend with a win over City and has a solid reason to go to a wild party in Manchester tonight before Monday morning. .
