Brentford team news

Midfielders Vitaly Janelt and Frank Onyeka could make their returns from respective injuries on Saturday, while Kristoffer Ajer is also close to making a recovery from a calf problem.

Keane Lewis-Potter is Brentford’s only long-term worry, with a return expected towards the end of the season.

Brentford predicted lineup (3-4-3): Raya; Jansson, Pinnock, Mee; Roerslev, Norgaard, Jensen, Henry; Mbeumo, Toney, Wissa.

Newcastle team news

Eddie Howe made a couple of notable changes – enforced or otherwise – to the side that started Wednesday’s win at West Ham, but could keep the same XI to keep momentum rolling.

Joe Willock was dropped to the bench after picking up a thigh injury, with his replacement in the starting lineup – Joelinton – scoring twice in the 5-1 triumph.

Alexander Isak may come back into the team despite Callum Wilson’s hot run of form.

Emil Krafth and Miguel Almiron are still a few weeks away from returning.

Newcastle predicted lineup (4-3-3): Pope; Trippier, Schar, Botman, Burn; Guimaraes, Longstaff, Joelinton; Murphy, Isak, Saint-Maximin,

In what’s been an almost universally positive season for Brentford, one of their only blips came when they were thrashed 5-1 in the reverse fixture.

It’s likely to be a much closer affair this time around with the Bees often competitive in these bigger games.

That said, Newcastle have demonstrated over the past week that they’re capable of unleashing their attacking talent as much as they can dig in deep and master the dark arts. They should just about take the points.
