Newcastle United predicted XI vs Brentford as Eddie Howe’s side aim to end three match losing streak

Newcastle United recorded a 5-1 win when they last hosted Brentford at SJP

Newcastle United host Brentford in the first Premier League fixture after the international break. The Magpies are hoping to bounce back from a dip in form which has seen them lose their last three games against Manchester City, Liverpool and Brighton.

Eddie Howe’s side have been handed a difficult start to the season and this upcoming clash at St James’ Park will be Newcastle’s final fixture before their long awaited return to the Champions League against AC Milan at the San Siro.

The Newcastle boss has a number of big selection decisions to make with that game in mind and new signings Harvey Barnes, Lewis Hall and Tino Livramento are all hoping to make their first starts in Black and White.

Howe has made just one change to his entire first XI in the opening four games of the season, but can we expect to see further changes this time around?

Here is our predicted XI for the game against Brentford.
