Newcastle United’s incredible improvement in form under Eddie Howe continued this weekend at Brentford, as did the ongoing flurry of transfer reports.
United, who have picked up 13 points from a possible 15 in their last five top flight matches, are now 14th in the league table and four points clear of the relegation zone.
After the win in London, Eddie Howe said: “Really, really pleased with our response to the red card, because, as we saw in our game against Norwich earlier in the season, it doesn’t guarantee you anything.
“We knew we’d have a lot of the ball, and it was about our quality and ability to break them down.
