The Brentford vs Newcastle live stream will see two teams in contrasting form meet. Life in the Premier League started well for the Bees, but the side are currently on a run of seven matches without a win. 

Meanwhile, Newcastle United endured a horrific first half of the season, but after splashing the cash in January are now six games undefeated and looking to move clear of the relegation zone.  

Brentford vs Newcastle live stream, date, time, channels

The Brentford vs Newcastle live stream takes place today (Saturday, February 26).
Time 3 p.m. GMT / 10 a.m. ET / 8 a.m. PT
• U.S. — Watch on Peacock (requires Premium or Premium Plus subscription)
• Watch anywhere — try ExpressVPN 100% risk free

The form table would certainly suggest that Brentford are verging on serious trouble. No wins in six, with five defeats in that time, is a run that would have any side in the division concerned. However, context is key, and in that span of games Brentford have faced Liverpool, Manchester United, Wolves, Manchester City and Arsenal.

That’s why securing a positive result in fixtures like this are so crucial if Brentford are to retain their Premier League status next season. It’s permissible losing to the likes of Liverpool and Manchester City, so long as you win your games against the teams around you. 

The side will be seriously boosted by the potential return of ex-Magpie Ivan Toney (who scored in the reverse fixture) and central-defender Mathias Jorgensen. Both are on the bench today after spells on the sideline.

This match could also see Christian Eriksen make an emotional return after seven-months out following a cardiac arrest during a Euro 2020 group stage match between Denmark and Finland. 

The 30-year-old hasn’t played a competitive match since, but has featured in a pair of behind-closed-doors friendlies and will start on the bench today. Regardless of the on-field result, the Dane making a comeback will be warmly received by the entire footballing world. 

While Brentford are being boosted by players returning from injury, Newcastle United are being decimated by a growing list of absentees. Key players Callum Wilson and Kieran Trippier will be out for several weeks more, while Allan Saint-Maximin and Javier Manquillo missed the West Ham game last week. Manquillo is on the bench today, but Saint-Maximin is still out. On the plus side, winger Ryan Fraser has recovered from injury and will start. 

Newcastle have been in fine form recently, picking up three wins in their last four games, but with so many injuries to key players, a result here might be a tall order for Eddie Howe’s remaining men. Brentford are fortunate to be playing Newcastle at almost the ideal time, and will relish the opportunity to face the Toon Army while they lack their most important troops. 

Here's how they line up:

Brentford: Raya, Ajer, Jansson, Pinnock, Vitelt, Henry, Dasilva, Norgaard, Jensen, Mbeumo, Wissa. 

Newcastle: Dubravka, Schar, Burn, Targett, Krafth, Shelvey, Willock, Joelinton, Fraser, Murphy, Wood.
