Newcastle head into this weekend’s return of the Premier League desperate to turn their fortunes around having lost their last three games.
The Magpies started the season fantastically with an emphatic 5-1 win over Aston Villa, but have since fallen to consecutive defeats against Manchester City, Liverpool and Brighton.
Eddie Howe’s side were dealt with an unfortunate opening month of Premier League fixtures, with all of their first four games coming against teams who finished last season in the top seven.
Their tough start to the new season has left the Magpies lying down in 14th ahead of this weekend’s action, though they can now look forward to a run of games against less imposing opposition.
Brentford have continued their rise up the ranks after last season’s impressive top half finish, and head into this weekend’s match unbeaten this season in all competitions despite being without their banned star player Ivan Toney.
Thomas Frank’s side won 3-0 at Fulham in the West London derby while all three of their other matches have ended in draws, collecting points off Tottenham, Crystal Palace and Bournemouth.
The Bees spent the international break sitting in eighth place in the league with their six points so far, and have the chance to break into the top six with a win on Saturday.
The Magpies did the double over the Bees last season, and have won the last three meetings between the two sides, and Howe has won three of his four previous meetings against Frank, drawing the other.
Brentford have beaten Newcastle just once in all competitions since 1948.
