After Newcastle United’s loss, Burnley’s Alan Shearer expressed worry that they were making “the same mistakes.”

Alan Shearer has warned Burnley they must learn from their mistakes and fast after suffering another Premier League defeat.

Vincent Kompany’s men were well beaten on the day, but what was most frustrating was how avoidable both of Newcastle’s goals were.

Discussing the game on Match of the Day, Shearer felt Burnley caused their own downfall as they suffered a fifth defeat in six games, leaving them on just one point and ahead of Sheffield United on goal difference only.

“It was pretty standard and routine win,” he said. “It’s another clean sheet and I thought Newcastle did really well.

“It’s a wonderful finish from Almiron, but he has to expect someone is going to put him under pressure. He can’t turn. He’s up against a fantastic player there in Trippier who is going to close him down.

“[For the first goal] it’s their throw-in, they play it across to their left-hand side to [Aaron] Ramsey. You’re at Newcastle, it’s the first 15 minutes of the game and you’re against [Kieran] Trippier, you’re not going to get that time to take a touch, turn and play as you want to.
