Ofcom received six complaints about BT Sport’s coverage of the Newcastle v Chelsea match January, making it one of the most complained about matches of the last five years. The BT Sport broadcast was when Rio Ferdinand gave his thoughts about Mike Ashley’s stewardship of Newcastle United – which prompted derision from fans and also, apparently, six complaints from viewers.

All six of the complaints were that the program was “materially misleading.” The regulator didn’t pursue any of the complaints.

The message was clear: the home crowd do not want their star man tempted away by Real Madrid this or any other transfer window.

Newcastle United make the trip to Burnley on November 26 as they look to stretch their winning run to three matches. Rafa Benitez's side went 10 games without a win before securing back-to-back home victories against Watford and Bournemouth in recent weeks. Remarkably, the Magpies have moved up to 14th in the Premier League table, however do hold just a one-point advantage over the drop zone. A win at last season's surprise package will only increase their chances of pulling away from danger and in the process, mark their first away win since April 15. What time is kick off? Kick-off at Turf Moor is at 8pm on Monday, November 26, 2018. Can I watch it on a live stream? Is the match on TV? The game is live on Sky Sports Main Event and Football.
