Tip Reasoning

  • Brentford have conceded seven goals across their last three games
  • Callum Wilson has scored in three of his four home appearances this term
  • Newcastle have conceded in all of their matches so far
  • Nine of the Magpies’ 11 games have seen both teams score

Magpies need a response

After going without a win in their opening 11 games of the season, Newcastle are under pressure as Eddie Howe makes his debut. The Magpies sit five points shy of safety thanks to their awful start under Steve Bruce, so Howe has a massive job to do.

He kicks off his reign in what is just the ninth league meeting between these two sides. During his time at Bournemouth Howe wasn’t known for defensive solidity, so he might not be the man to quickly sort out Newcastle’s defence. With Brentford struggling at the back too, it’s worth backing goals in this encounter.

Wilson to make an impact

With Brentford heading into this game having conceded seven times across their last three league games, Callum Wilson has to be one to watch here. The Newcastle frontman has scored four times in seven appearances for the Magpies this term.

He’s been effective at home this term, averaging 1.3 shots on target per game at St James’ Park. Wilson has scored in three of his four home starts this season and he’s good value to punish a struggling Brentford defence.

Debut win for Howe

Brentford have a poor defence, but Newcastle have failed to keep a clean sheet all season. The hosts have shipped 2.6 goals per game at home this term, while they’ve seen both teams score in nine of their 11 matches.

The only side to stop Newcastle from scoring at home this term are Chelsea – the best defence in the division. Brentford are far from that, they’ve conceded in each of their last seven. Both teams have scored in six of those, so that’s our main prediction in this clash.

Brentford have lost each of their last four Premier League games and they look vulnerable in this visit to a Newcastle side who need a win. I’m backing the new manager bounce to extend Brentford’s losing streak, with a 2-1 home win my correct score prediction.

Newcastle predicted lineup: Dubravka; Krafth, Lascelles, Clark, Ritchie; Hayden, Shelvey; Fraser, Almiron, Saint-Maximin; Wilson

Brentford predicted lineup: Fernandez; Goode, Jansson, Pinnock; Canos, Janelt, Norgaard, Jensen, Henry; Toney, Mbeumo
