Newcastle United and Brentford will lock horns with each other in the Premier League this coming weekend. The match between the Magpies and the Bees will be held at St. James’ Park and is scheduled to kick off at 5:30pm UK time on Saturday.

Newcastle United

Newcastle United did extremely well last season and exceeded expectations. Not many expected Newcastle to end up in the top four of the Premier League table last season, but they did just that. To finish ahead of the likes of Liverpool and Chelsea in the league table was a massive achievement.

While Newcastle will be looking forward to playing in the group stage of the UEFA Champions League this season, they are not having the best of times in the Premier League. Eddie Howe’s side are as low as 14th in the league table at the moment with three points from four matches. Newcastle are only two points above the bottom three and seven points behind West Ham United in fourth. Defending champions and league leaders Manchester City are already nine points ahead of them.

Newcastle kicked off their Premier League campaign with a 5-1 hammering of Aston Villa at St. James’ Park in the Premier League. It was one of the best performances in the league of that weekend. However, they then lost 1-0 to Manchester City at the Etihad Stadium in the Premier League. Then came the 2-1 loss to Liverpool at home in the league, and it was followed by 3-1 defeat to Brighton and Hove Albion away from home in the Premier League.

Team News:

Newcastle United manager Eddie Howe is likely to field a 4-3-3 formation. Pope will be the goalkeeper. Trippier, Schar, Burn and Targett will be the four defenders. Tonali, Bruno and Joelinton will be the three midfielders and will have Almiron, Isak and Gordon upfront.


Like Newcastle United, Brentford also did extremely well and exceeded expectations. While the Bees did not qualify for the UEFA Champions League, they did not have to worry about a relegation battle at all and comfortably ended up ninth in the Premier League table this season. The challenge this season is to make sure that things stay just the same.

Brentford have started the new season relatively well. The Bees are eighth in the Premier League table with six points from four matches. Thomas Frank’s side are four points behind West Ham United in fourth and are already five points above the bottom three.

The Bees started their new Premier League campaign with a 2-2 draw with Tottenham Hotspur at home in the London derby. Then came a 3-0 hammering of Fulham at Craven Cottage in another London derby. The following match ended in a 1-1 draw with Crystal Palace at the Gtech Community Stadium in another London derby. After defeating Newport County on penalties in the EFL Cup, Brentford were held to a 2-2 draw with Bournemouth in front of their own fans in the Premier League just before the international break.

Team News:

Brentford manager Thomas Frank is likely to line up his team in a 4-3-3 formation. Flekken will be in goal. Hickey, Pinnock, Mee and Henry will be the four defenders. Jensen, Norgaard and Janelt will be the three midfielders. Mbeumo, Wissa and Schade will be the three players upfront.

Key Factors to Consider

  • Newcastle United have lost their last three Premier League matches.
  • Newcastle United have scored 7 goals in 4 Premier League matches
  • Newcastle United have conceded 7 goals in 4 Premier League matches.
  • Brentford have scored 8 goals in 4 Premier League games.
  • Brentford have conceded 5 goals in 4 Premier League games.


While Brentford are a good side and are in better form than Newcastle United at the moment, the Magpies have better players. And they are also at home. It is hard to see Newcastle drop all three points. A narrow home win is the most likely outcome in this game.
