Newcastle and Brentford served up a six-goal thriller the last time they met at St James' Park and, with Callum Wilson and Ivan Toney set to line up on the same pitch for the first time since the Bees striker displaced Wilson in the England setup, there may be a slight edge to proceedings today. Read on to find out how to watch a Newcastle vs Brentford live stream and catch the Premier League online, no matter where you are.
Eddie Howe has named the same XI that thrashed Fulham 4-1 a week ago, which means Wilson starts at the center of a three-pronged attack, with the in-form Miguel Almirón on the right, and Jacob Murphy on the left. Allan Saint-Maximin, who hasn't featured since August, is named on the bench.
Brentford skipper Pontus Jansson is out of action, so Ethan Pinnock slots into central defense and Toney wears the captain's armband against his former club. Mikkel Damsgaard and Shandon Baptiste also make way for Aaron Hickey and Josh DaSilva in midfield.
Date: Saturday, October 8
Kick-off time: 3pm BST / 10am ET / 7am PT / 7.30pm IST / 12am AEST / 3am NZDT
Venue: St James' Park, Newcastle

Wilson firmly believes that if he's fit he'll be ahead of Toney in the England pecking order, and Newcastle's big No.9 backed up his words by making a goalscoring return to action last weekend. The Magpies were up against 10 men for more than 80 minutes of the game, but the victory provided a much-needed confidence boost for a team that had grown used to sharing the spoils.
Brentford were in strong form before September's lengthy break in play, and the pause has cost them their momentum. With a tricky run of fixtures ahead, Thomas Frank has his work cut out getting his players back up to speed, and key to their hopes is that man Toney.
He's their top scorer with five goals, but the last-gasp miss at Bournemouth last weekend cost them what would have been their first away win of the season. He's going to be in the spotlight on Tyneside today. Follow our guide to get a Newcastle vs Brentford live stream and watch the Premier League online from anywhere.
