Form Guide

In their last five games in all competitions, Brentford have three wins, one draw and one loss.

After a goalless first half, an own goal from Oliver Luke Arblaster opened the scoring for The Bees. Frank Onyeka added another in the 93rd minute to secure the 2 - 0 win for Brentford over Sheffield United, who had just two shots on target.

Yoane Wissa grabbed two goals in the first half to give Brentford the 2 - 0 lead over Luton at halftime. Ethan Pinnock, Keane Lewis-Potter and Kevin Schade all added to the scoreline as Luke Berry grabbed a late consolation goal in the 5 - 1 win for Brentford.

However, the next time out for Brentford saw them slump to defeat against Everton. Idrissa Gueye scored the only goal of the game on the hour mark with Everton’s only shot on target to give The Toffees the 1 - 0 win.

Brentford were unable to find the back of the net again against Fulham. Both sides had just three shots on target and failed to convert any of them as the game ended in a 0 - 0 draw and a point each.

The last time out for Brentford was against Bournemouth. The scoring started late, with Bryan Mbeumo opening the scoring in the 86th minute but Dominic Solanke equalised with one minute to go. However, Wissa popped up with a goal in the fifth minute of extra time to give Brentford the 2 - 1 win.

In their last five games in all competitions, Newcastle have three wins, one draw and one loss.

In a two minute period in the first half, both Alexander Isak and Anthony Gordon picked up a goal to give Newcastle the 2 - 0 lead over Tottenham at halftime. Isak added another goal early in the second half and was joined on the scoresheet by Schar to give Newcastle the 4 - 0 win.

However, following this big win, Newcastle were shocked by Crystal Palace. Jean-Philippe Mateta scored both goals in the second half to give Palace the shock 2 - 0 win.

Newcastle bounced back against Sheffield United. Anel Ahmedhodzic opened the scoring for Sheffield United in the five minute, but a brace from Isak, an own goal from Ben Osborn and goals from Bruno Guimaraes and Callum Wilson gave Newcastle the 5 - 1 win.

Wilson was on the scoresheet again for Newcastle in the first half along with Sean Longstaff and Guimaraes to give Newcastle the 3 - 0 lead over Burnley at halftime. Isak added another as Dara O’Shea scored a consolation goal in the 4 - 1 win for The Magpies.

Joel Veltman opened the scoring for Brighton in the 18th minute but Longstaff equalised just before halftime. Neither side could find another goal as the game finished in a 1 - 1 draw.

Newcastle also take on Manchester United on Wednesday.

FlashPicks Prediction

Newcastle are in need of a win as they fight it out for some level of European football but it’s likely to be a close game with both sides on the scoresheet, Isak a likely suspect to score for The Magpies. Brentford 1 - 2 Newcastle
