Newcastle Eye Victory over Brentford

Arlo Gibbons


Newcastle United‘s recent performance in Europe has been impressive, but their form in the Premier League has been disappointing. They are hoping to bounce back in their upcoming match against Brentford. The Bees have shown resilience and remain unbeaten in their last four matches, despite three draws. The match will take place at St. James’ Park on Saturday, September 16th.

In terms of recent encounters, Newcastle has won three times against Brentford, with one win for Brentford and one draw. Their most recent duel ended in a 2-1 victory for Newcastle in April 2023.

Newcastle’s form in the Premier League has been poor, with three consecutive defeats leading up to the international break. They have slipped from their European aspirations and are in need of a win to regain their confidence. On the other hand, Brentford has been consistent, with a form guide of DWDD.

Newcastle will have some concerns when it comes to their team. Key player Sandro Tonali, along with Joe Willock, Emil Krafth, and Javier Manquillo, is in the medical room due to injuries. However, there is hope for Tonali’s return against his former club AC Milan. Sven Botman’s return to training after a ligament setback also offers a glimmer of hope for Newcastle.

Brentford, on the other hand, has their own injury woes. Josh Dasilva and Shandon Baptiste are sidelined with injuries, while there is anticipation surrounding Mikel Damsgaard’s return. In attack, the trio of Bryan Mbeumo, Kevin Schade, and Yoane Wissa is expected to lead the team.

Newcastle’s prowess as a team is undeniable, and they have the ability to dismantle any opponent on their day. With the added break thanks to the international window, Newcastle is likely to set up pragmatically, without underestimating Brentford but also keeping an eye on their upcoming match against AC Milan.

In terms of a match prediction, it is expected to be a close encounter with Newcastle winning 2-1 against Brentford.
