Newcastle United will welcome Brentford at St. James’ Park on Saturday afternoon as they try to secure maximum points at home under the stewardship of their new manager Eddie Howe. The Magpies managed to grind out a 1-1 draw versus Brighton and Hove Albion before the international break. The Tyneside outfit are still looking for their first win of this campaign, so this game could be a good opportunity for them to collect all three points in front of their home supporters.
Howe will set his team up in a 4-4-1-1 formation with the hope that his players can keep a good shape at the back and create enough chances to win this clash. Both Joelinton and Joe Willock will play from the start but the Newcastle boss will be sweating on the fitness of Ryan Fraser who is recovering from a knock.
4-4-1-1 Newcastle United Predicted Lineup To Face Brentford
Martin Dubravka will feature in between the sticks for the Magpies as he looks to secure a clean sheet at home. Ciaran Clark will operate alongside Jamaal Lascelles in central defence as they try to keep things tidy at the back throughout the game.
Javier Manquillo will be expected to be a solid presence at right-back while Matt Ritchie hopes to put in an impressive display as a makeshift left-back. Both of them will have to stop the Brentford wide players from creating too many chances from the flanks.
Isaac Hayden and Joe Willock will assume the duties of the holding midfielders for the Magpies. Joelinton could get a chance to impress as the left-sided winger while Miguel Almiron focuses on putting his pace to good use on the right flank.
Allan Saint-Maximin will get the freedom to express himself as a free-flowing, attacking midfielder. He is expected to carry most of the creative burden for Newcastle this Saturday afternoon.
Callum Wilson will lead the line for Eddie Howe’s team in the final third. The English striker will be keen on getting his name on the scoresheet so that he can get some confidence back in his game ahead of the busy winter months in the Premier League.
Dwight Gayle will be available for selection on the Magpies bench but could come on to make an impact in the latter stages of the game if needed.
