Newcastle United ‘leading’ Juventus in attacker pursuit, Man City ‘deny’ Erling Haaland rumours
Newcastle United could make it six home matches unbeaten in the Premier League this weekend.
Newcastle United haven’t suffered defeat on home turf since a 1-0 loss to Liverpool back in April.
The Magpies are set to host Brentford this weekend and will be confident of another victory after thrashing Fulham 4-1 last time out.
A win for Eddie Howe’s side could potentially move them to a top four spot - making their following trip to Old Trafford even bigger.
Newcastle will also be relieved that both Joelinton and Allan Saint-Maximin could return to the side after recovering from injuries, however Alexander Isak is likely to remain sidelined.
Here are today’s rumours...
