Newcastle United will welcome Brentford at St. James’ Park this Saturday afternoon as they look to secure a win at home. The Magpies managed to earn an dominant 4-1 victory away at Fulham recently which will give them some confidence about picking up all three points in the Premier League this weekend.

Eddie Howe is expected to opt for a 4-3-3 formation and could be inclined to make a few changes to his starting XI for this game. Joelinton, Ryan Fraser and Matt Targett could all get a chance to play from the start as Howe looks to name a strong team for this clash versus the Bees.

Nick Pope will play in between the sticks for the Magpies after conceding one goal in his last league appearance. Dan Burn will resume his defensive partnership with Fabian Schar at the centre of Newcastle’s defence as they try to keep a clean sheet against Brentford this weekend.

Kieran Trippier will be a nailed-on starter at right-back while Matt Targett hopes to catch the eye on the other side as the left-back. Both Newcastle full-backs could get the license to get forward and join in on the attack at every chance they get.

Sven Botman will have to settle for a spot on the bench as he offers cover for the defensive positions.

Joelinton, Bruno Guimaraes and Joe Willock will make up the Newcastle midfield as they focus on winning the battle at the centre of the park and orchestrating some meaningful openings in the final third.

Sean Longstaff will be available for selection on the bench as he awaits his chance to make an impact in the second 45 minutes if needed.


Ryan Fraser will function as the left-sided wide player while Miguel Almiron will hope to catch the eye on the right flank. Howe will ask both of them to be more decisive on the attacking third of the pitch.

Almiron managed to find the back of the net twice, so he will be hungry to make a difference this Saturday afternoon.

Callum Wilson will spearhead Newcastle’s attack on his own up top. The English striker is enjoying a good run of form at the moment which will make him Howe’s best hope for a goal this weekend.

Chris Wood will be named on the bench and might come on to make an impact in the latter stages of the contest if needed.
