Confirmed NUFC team vs Brentford – Saint-Maximin missing & Toney not fit enough to start

Following our 1-1 draw at West Ham last weekend, we take on Brentford in what’s being billed a relegation six-pointer for two clubs scrapping to stay up.

The team news has arrived ahead of the 3pm kick off, seeing us line up as follows:

STARTING 11: Dubravka – Krafth, Schar, Burn, Targett – Shelvey, Willock, Joelinton – Fraser, Wood, Murphy.

SUBS: Darlow, Dummett, Lascelles, Fernandez, Manquillo, Longstaff, Guimaraes, Almiron, Gayle.

So, Eddie Howe has named an unchanged side, fielding the same 11 who started last weekend’s 1-1 draw at West Ham.

Sadly. there’s no Allan Saint-Maximin in the squad, however Javier Manquillo is back on the bench – alongside our new £40m Brazilian Bruno Guimaraes.

Elsewhere, Kieran Trippier (foot), Callum Wilson (calf) and Matt Ritchie (knee) remain out once again,

Here’s the side Thomas Frank has gone with for the hosts, seeing Ivan Toney and former Spurs star Christian Eriksen named on the bench; NOT in the starting 11:
