After their draw against West Ham on Saturday, Eddie Howe’s side are set to make their second appearance in the capital in as many weeks when they take on Thomas Frank’s Brentford.

The Bees haven’t tasted victory in any of their last eight games in all competitions and after a very good start to life in the Premier League, they have slipped slowly towards relegation danger in recent months.

When the two sides met in November, they were separated by seven points and five places in the league table, however, this time around, a victory for the Magpies would see them leapfrog their opponents.
