Newcastle United resume their Premier League campaign with a crucial match against Brentford.

The fixture is a direct repeat of Eddie Howe’s first-ever match in charge of Newcastle nearly two years ago, although he was ultimately forced to wait for his welcome due to Covid.

The match in October 2021 was a thrilling 3-3 draw which saw Jamal Lascelles score at both ends of the pitch , while Allan Saint-Maximin earned his side a late equaliser. The result did little favours for Newcastle at the time as they were rooted to the bottom of the table with just six points from 12 games.

Fast forward two seasons and Newcastle are now a Champions League club, while Brentford themselves only narrowly missed out on a place in the Europa Conference League on the final day of last season.

Both sides enter this season with much bigger expectations than they did two years ago and that is a testament to the excellent work of both Eddie Howe and Thomas Frank.

But when is Newcastle’s game with Brentford and how can fans follow all the action?
