Newcastle United has had a terrible start to the new Premier League season, and Eddie Howe’s future has been the subject of rumors. The Toon have lost three in a row heading into Saturday’s game against Brentford, and a fourth loss would put significant pressure on the coach.
After a promising start to the season with a resounding victory against Aston Villa, Newcastle has dropped three straight matches to Man City, Liverpool, and Brighton. They have scored twice in that span while letting in six goals against.
They lost their last game before the international break by a score of 3-1 to Brighton. The Toon were not at their best that day; they only managed two shots on goal and didn’t score until the 92nd minute.
Brentford is one of several clubs that has yet to experience a loss this season, but they have progressed only somewhat due to their three draws. That consists of a draw in their previous two. But if they can get back to winning ways this weekend, they may end up in sixth place.
The Bees’ most recent match ended in a disappointing 2-2 draw against Bournemouth in front of their home fans. Bryan Mbeumo scored a remarkable equalizer in the final minute of that match, saving their blushes.
Including last season’s 5-1 rout, Newcastle has won each of its past three Premier League encounters against Brentford. Only in the 2020–21 EFL Cup did Brentford finally beat Newcastle for the first time in six tries.
This weekend’s match might be a must-win for Howe’s Newcastle, so the pressure is on. A lot of people are expecting them to put on a show for their home fans and win by at least a couple of goals against the Bees because of their fantastic record against them.
