The premier league positions are slowly taking a solid shape. For instance, we have teams like Newcastle fighting to get away from relegation and Brentford resisting the pressure to head back to the lower league. Brentford was promoted last season and their campaign was quite the best for a new side. They were more like Leeds United last year, but haven’t kept up with the top tier class. After showing a great deal of bravery and determination to be among the best EPL side, Brentford’s form is now going downhill.
Newcastle has remained quite the weak side even after the acquisition and all the hype associated with richer owners taking over football clubs. The deal is good, but maybe the talent or inspiration in players is just missing.
Newcastle vs Brentford analysis
Newcastle United has only picked 5 points this season and they rest 19th on the PL table. They are currently five points away from safety, meaning they really need to win this match and get a draw in the next one to increase their chance of exiting the relegation zone.
Brentford is not safe either as they are only 2 points clear from the 17th side, Watford, and 4 points away from Burnley. Therefore, they could possibly slide into the red zone anytime. Brentford will fight to survive this season while Newcastle United will be determined to get out of the danger. This could be a draw, but Brentford still holds a better winning possibility despite the four consecutive losses in previous games.
