Newcastle United v Brentford live stream, Saturday 20 November, 3pm GMT
Eddie Howe will be looking to secure Newcastle’s first victory of the season when Brentford visit St James’ Park on Saturday.
Having failed to lure Unai Emery to the northeast of England, Newcastle confirmed the appointment of Howe as Steve Bruce’s successor before the international break. The former Bournemouth boss watched his new team’s 1-1 draw with Brighton from the stands, and Newcastle’s performance in that match will have underlined the size of the task confronting him.
The Magpies’ bid to avoid relegation will no doubt be aided by significant investment in the squad in January. Before then Howe must try and make the team more inventive in the final third. Newcastle did a decent job of shutting out Brighton two weeks ago, but they created precious few opportunities of their own.
Brentford will be desperate to arrest their slide down the table by beating Newcastle this weekend. Thomas Frank’s charges moved up to seventh after overcoming West Ham last month, but a run of four consecutive defeats since then has left the Bees down in 14th. Brentford were a little unfortunate to lose 2-1 to Norwich last time out, but it is fair to say the honeymoon period is over for the Premier League new boys.
Frank will have to make do without David Raya, Mads Sorensen, Joshua Dasilva and Kristoffer Ajer for the trip to the northeast. Mathias Jorgensen and Yoane Wissa will require late fitness tests, while Shandon Baptiste and Mathias Jensen are expected to be involved.
It will be interesting to see whether Howe retains the three-man backline that Newcastle have used for much of the season to date. Paul Dummett is still out injured and will play no part here, but Ryan Fraser and Miguel Almiron are expected to be involved.
Kick-off is at 3pm GMT on Saturday 20 November. See below for international broadcast options.

Use a VPN to watch Premier league football from outside your country
If you’re out of the country for a round of Premier League fixtures, then annoyingly your domestic on-demand services won’t work – the broadcaster knows where you are because of your IP address (boo!). You'll be blocked from watching it, which is not ideal if you’ve paid up for a subscription and still want to catch the action without resorting to illegal feeds you’ve found on Reddit.
But assistance is on hand. To get around that, all you have to do is get a Virtual Private Network (VPN), assuming it complies with your broadcaster’s T&Cs. A VPN creates a private connection between your device and t'internet, meaning the service can’t work out where you are and won't automatically block the service you've paid for. All the info going between is entirely encrypted – and that's a result.
There are plenty of good-value options out there, including:
ExpressVPN including a 30-day, money-back guarantee
