Newcastle vs Brentford 16/09/2023 – Verdict

Eddie Howe’s side took the lead in the 25th minute, just three minutes before Virgil van Dijk was sent off. However, substitute Darwin Nunez scored in the 81st and 90th minute.

There seemed to be a hangover as they started slowly against Brighton, losing 3-1 and rarely troubling the Seasiders. The Toon have lost three consecutive Premier League games for the first time since April 2022.

Many pundits were quick to dismiss Brentford after top scorer Ivan Toney was ruled out, but Bryan Mbuemo has stepped up with four goals in four games this season.

Brentford surged to a top-half finish when winning five of their final six league matches last season, a run which included toppling Champions Man City on the final day.

They’re unbeaten so far this term, winning one and drawing three but the frustration for Frank will be that his side has thrown away more points from winning positions (6) than any other team in the Premier League this season.

Dating back to October 2021, Newcastle have lost just four Premier League matches at home, losing only to Man City, Arsenal and Liverpool.

Brentford have enjoyed their fair share of giant killings in the Premier League, beating Man City (twice), Tottenham, Chelsea, Liverpool and Man Utd since the start of last season.

It would take a brave person to suggest Brentford will win this match, but we know they have the blueprint and the tools to execute it.

We’re expecting an open and end-to-end game with both teams contributing to the scoring.

An away win would mean Newcastle losing four in a row for the first time since January 2021 under Steve Bruce, with Brentford winning three consecutive Premier League away games for the first time in club history.
