Newcastle come into this fixture in a testing period, as they have lost each of their previous three. There have been murmurs that the tide is turning against Eddie Howe, as fans are growing restless about the performances put in by the Toon, as well as the results.
The Magpies were outfought before the international break, as they suffered a 3-1 loss against Brighton. It is the first time since April 2022 that Newcastle have lost three straight matches. They hadn’t lost more than three matches in their final 14 matches last term. Meanwhile, Newcastle haven’t lost four straight Premier League matches since Steve Bruce’s reign in January 2021.
Brentford have made a reliable start to the new season, as they have avoided defeat in each of their opening four matches. However, they have picked up just a single victory to show from their performances to this point. Brentford’s last away win against Newcastle came back in September 1934, and they are winless in their last five visits.
The Bees have been in excellent form in the Premier League this calendar year, as they have lost just once in their last eleven matches. Their only defeat was a 1-0 loss at Anfield at the end of last term.
Newcastle vs Brentford Prediction
This weekend is huge for Newcastle, as the pressure will intensify on Eddie Howe if his side are beaten this weekend. Brentford have been a tough side to beat throughout this season, and we wouldn’t be surprised if a draw is the outcome on Saturday.
