Tip Reasoning

  • Newcastle are seeking to extend a five-game unbeaten run and have three wins in their last four.
  • Brentford have lost seven of their last eight games, with one draw.
  • The Magpies have only managed one clean sheet in 11 trips in the Premier League.
  • Joe Willock scored his first goal of the season last weekend.

Newcastle can drag Brentford into danger

A five-game unbeaten run has seen Newcastle haul themselves out of the bottom three and they can drag Brentford right into the relegation scrap if they can take all three points in West London on Saturday.

The Magpies sit 17th with 22 points on the board, just two behind their hosts in 14th ahead of this weekend’s round of fixtures.

Newcastle do have a number of injury concerns and key duo Kieran Trippier and Allan Saint-Maximin are among seven players expected to miss Saturday’s game. Brentford are faring better in that regard, although forward Ivan Toney may well miss a fifth straight game
with a calf injury.

Resurgent Newcastle can claim key win

Newcastle are unbeaten in their last five games and have won three of their last four. Eddie Howe’s men were held at West Ham last time out but this trip to an out-of-sorts Brentford looks like a great opportunity to put some distance between themselves and the bottom three.

The Bees are winless in their last eight competitive games and they’ve lost seven of those. Thomas Frank’s side have been putting in better performances than their results suggest, but Newcastle are the team with the momentum behind them and at a big price I think they are worth backing to win this clash rather than take the safer option of a bet on the visitors in the double chance market.

Bees can still sting visitors

Brentford may be in poor form, but they have still been scoring and I’m not expecting Newcastle to escape with a clean sheet on Saturday.

The hosts have only failed to score in two of their last five games and one of those was against Manchester City, with their other blank coming in a 0-0 draw with Crystal Palace. Newcastle have managed just one clean sheet in 11 attempts on their travels so Brentford should at least be able to grab a goal.

Newcastle do have the second worst away record in the league with just seven points on their travels so far. However, they have picked up four in their last two trips and as such I’m going for a 2-1 win for the visitors as the correct score bet. Brentford have conceded at least twice in seven of their last eight games, while Newcastle have conceded exactly one goal in five of their last seven.

Callum Wilson is Newcastle’s top scorer with six goals but he is set to miss out on Saturday due to a calf injury. Joe Willock could be worth a small stake for a goal at anytime after finally opening his account for the season at West Ham. The midfielder managed eight goals in 14 appearances last season for Newcastle but has struggled going forward this term, and that strike against the Hammers may provide the boost he needed to regain his composure in front of goal.
