Is this the Newcastle United side Eddie Howe will pick to face Brentford?

Following their 5-1 hammering of West Ham on Wednesday night, Newcastle United have another game in the capital when they face Thomas Frank’s high-flying Bees.

Currently sitting in 9th place, Brentford have left any worries about ‘second season syndrome’ firmly in the past and have a shot at qualifying for European football.

Newcastle meanwhile, know they must continue their great momentum if they are to solidify their claims for a spot in next season’s Champions League.

Here, we take a look at the starting XI Howe could name when his side visit the Gtech Community Stadium.
