Newcastle will welcome Brentford to St.James’ Park in the 12th round encounter in the Premier League. This is also the debut match of the new coach Eddie Howe and the “prickly” will hope for a first victory this season. In front of a rookie who is on the decline, 3 points is not too difficult a task for Newcastle at the moment.
After being supported by the Saudi royal family, Newcastle is raising its ambition to become a giant of English football. However, that is the story of the future, and at the present time “injection” faces the risk of not being able to play football in the Premier League next season. In the last round, they had to struggle to hold Brighton 1-1 when as a guest of this opponent. Thus, after 11 matches played, Newcastle is the only team that has not yet won a victory in the Premier League in the 2021-2022 season.
They drew 5 and lost 6, bringing back a meager 5 points and standing at the bottom of the table. The distance to the safe area is 5 points and Newcastle must be very careful not to fall into a tragic situation. Newcastle have conceded 24 goals in 11 matches, which is the second worst defensive record in the league. After appointing coach Eddie Howe, Newcastle hope for a makeover of the team. However, in the debut match, the former Bournemouth coach could not directly take the lead because he was infected with Covid-19. This is not a small loss and Newcastle need to overcome to bring home the first victory.
As a rookie of the English Premier League this season, however, Brentford has had an impressive start. Things only really got worse when Brentford was gradually caught playing and they no longer created earthquakes like before. Specifically, Brentford is experiencing a 4-match losing streak in the English Premier League. After 11 matches, Brentford won 3, drew 3 and lost 5. The away team is currently at 14th place on the table with 12 points. They are currently 4 points ahead of the group holding the red light and need to play carefully in the next stage.
The last time Brentford lost 5 games in a row was in 2007 when they were in League Two. The away team lost only 1 time in the last 6 away matches and won 3/4 of the last trip away from home. However, after 5 encounters with Newcastle in the past, Brentford won 1 and lost 4. Brentford certainly want to end their series of bad matches, but things will not be easy before a Newcastle is in a dead end. .
