Brentford Vs New castle Preview
The Bees were agonisingly close to gleaning a point through Kevin Schade, but the German was thwarted one-on-one by David de Gea in the second half as Brentford’s winless run in the top division stretched to three matches, and Frank nevertheless insisted that being disappointed at losing to Man United was a sign of how far Brentford had come.
However, a run of just two wins from eight Premier League matches has dented the hosts’ European aspirations somewhat, as they enter the weekend occupying ninth place in the Premier League table, level on points with eighth-placed Liverpool – who have a game in hand – and one behind Aston Villa in the seventh and potentially final continental spot.
When the going gets tough, Brentford can always turn to their remarkable home record for a healthy dose of inspiration, as the Bees still just have the one league defeat at the Gtech Community Stadium on their notebook this season – a 3-0 reverse to Arsenal in September.
Since being swept aside by the runaway league leaders, Frank’s crop have gone 10 Premier League games without defeat in front of their own fans – scoring in each of their last eight on home soil – but Newcastle have recent when it comes to capital drubbings.
Team news and Injury
Brentford boss Frank was boosted by the return of Vitaly Janelt to training following a knee injury earlier this week, and while the German was unable to return against Man United, he could force his way back into the hosts’ squad for Saturday.
However, fellow midfielder Frank Onyeka also missed the Old Trafford loss with a minor thigh issue and remains sidelined, while neither Kristoffer Ajer (calf) nor Keane Lewis-Potter (knee) are likely to be back for another few weeks yet.
Having been left largely satisfied with what he saw on Wednesday, Frank may see little reason to make significant changes, but Yoane Wissa and Aaron Hickey should feel optimistic of coming back into the starting XI.
As for Newcastle, Willock shook off a thigh concern to come off the bench at the London Stadium in midweek, and Howe has no fresh concerns to report from the thrashing of West Ham.
However, Miguel Almiron (thigh) and Emil Krafth (knee) will both miss out again, while Ryan Fraser remains in exile with the Under-21s, but the former Bournemouth man would have little chance of forcing his way into the first XI either way.
Having featured from the first whistle in all of Newcastle’s four recent wins, Jacob Murphy can look forward to a fifth successive Premier League start this week, as Isak and Anthony Gordon provide impetus from the bench once more.

Brentford vs New castle Prediction
Newcastle United have a robust squad at their disposal and are only a few good results away from securing their place in the top four. Eddie Howe has managed to get the best out of his players and will need his stars to step up yet again this weekend.
Brentford can pack a punch on their day and are particularly impressive on their own turf. Newcastle United are the better team at the moment, however, and should be able to win this game.
