Sean Dyche's side have lost their first two league games of the campaign to Leicester City and Southampton, but Newcastle have picked up four points from their first three top-flight encounters this term.
The Magpies could not build on the win over the Hammers as they suffered a 3-0 home defeat to Brighton & Hove Albion on September 20, but they picked up a point in their last league game at Tottenham Hotspur courtesy of a late penalty from Wilson, which arrived after help from VAR.
Steve Bruce's side have therefore gathered four points from their three fixtures to sit 10th in the table, while they have also triumphed on three occasions in the EFL Cup this season, beating Blackburn Rovers, Morecambe and Newport County to progress to the quarter-finals.
Newcastle will be looking for a positive result this weekend ahead of the international break, particularly considering that their next game after this one is at home to Manchester United.
The Magpies are winless in their last two Premier League games with Burnley, though, suffering a 1-0 loss at Turf Moor last season, while the points were shared in a goalless draw at St James' Park in February.
Burnley, as mentioned, have made a disappointing start to their Premier League season, suffering a 4-2 loss at Leicester City on September 20 before going down 1-0 at home to Southampton last weekend.
The Clarets were also dumped out of the EFL Cup on Wednesday night courtesy of a 3-0 home defeat to Manchester City, meaning that confidence in the squad will not exactly be flying.
Burnley's transfer business this summer has been modest, and it could be a difficult campaign for the club, particularly if they struggle to pick up results over the next few weeks.
Newcastle have lost each of their last three home games in the Premier League, though, while Dyche's side have won three of their last five on their travels, suffering just one defeat in the process.

As for Burnley, Jack Cork, Johann Berg Gudmundsson, Ben Mee and Robbie Brady remain on the sidelines through injury, while Jay Rodriguez is out until after the international break with an ankle issue.
Matthew Lowton is also a doubt with the problem that he picked up against Man City in the EFL Cup, but key defender James Tarkowski made his return against Pep Guardiola's side and should be available.
Newcastle United possible starting lineup:
Darlow; Manquillo, Lascelles, Fernandez, Lewis; Hendrick, Shelvey, Hayden, Saint-Maximin; Joelinton, Wilson
Burnley possible starting lineup:
Pope; Bardsley, Tarkowski, Long, Taylor; Brownhill, Stephens, Westwood, McNeil; Wood, Vydra
We say: Newcastle United 2-1 Burnley
Newcastle have only won one of their last three Premier League games with Burnley, while the Magpies were really disappointing in their last league game at home to Brighton. Burnley are struggling for results and performances at the moment, though, and we expect Bruce's side to collect all three points here.
