Brentford striker Ivan Toney made two Premier League appearances for Newcastle United in the 2015/16 campaign. In Premier League history, Newcastle have conceded more goals to players who used to play for them in the competition than any other side (49). 

Newcastle are the only side without a win in the Premier League this season, with 11 matches being their longest run without victory from the start of any league campaign. However, the last two winless sides in the Premier League this season got their first victory against Brentford (Burnley in Matchweek 10 and Norwich City in Matchweek 11). 

Along with Watford, Newcastle are one of two sides without a clean sheet in the Premier League so far this season, while only Norwich City (26) have conceded more than the Magpies so far (24).

Brentford have lost each of their last four Premier League matches. They last lost five consecutive league outings back in December 2007 in League Two.
