Follow live coverage as Newcastle United take on Brentford in the Premier League today.

The Magpies have been tough to beat this season even though winning games were hard to come by at the start of the campaign for Eddie Howe’s men, but with a few players now returning from injury, including Callum Wilson and Joelinton, they can optimistically hope as games go by the World Cup break.

While seventh in the table at the start of the game, opponents Brentford are 10th by just one point. The Bees have been entertaining but inconsistent so far and will be hoping to show some more attacking momentum after drawing two blanks in the last two games. A win for either side could propel them into the top six, depending on results elsewhere.

We’ll bring you all of today’s game action and updates in the live blog below:

Guimaraes’ sloppy pass goes straight to Baptiste, who spots Dasilva’s searing run down the left. He sparkles a good center in the area, but there is too much for Mbuemo at the far post.

Pope goes long with his goal kick and Longstaff throws it past Almiron on the right. He is almost at the line when he loses control of it and he claims there was a tug from Pinnock, but nothing is given.

Guimaraes remained on the ground holding his calf and the physio came to treat him. He is recovering quickly and he will be able to continue.

Since making his Premier League debut in February, Guimaraes has scored more goals in the competition than any other Newcastle player (six).

Brentford are falling deeper into their own half and just can’t keep the ball up yet. Jensen’s loose touch goes straight to Almiron, but his first shot hits Henry.

It’s another good Newcastle counter-attack, with Almiron re-launching the charge. It worked through Guimaraes and Willock, who touches it on Murphy, but his low cross is blocked.

Trippier is receiving treatment, and he moves cautiously as he gets to his feet, but he will be able to continue.
