Newcastle cruised to a big win over Brentford thanks to goals from Guimaraes

Newcastle United's Bruno Guimaraes scores the opening goal during the Premier League match between Newcastle United and Brentford FC at St. James Park on October 8, 2022 in Newcastle upon Tyne, United Kingdom.

In honour of a year since their takeover, Newcastle obliterated Brentford 4-0, according to manager Eddie Howe. 

Bruno Guimaraes was outstanding, according to Howe, who praised him after the match. The midfielder scored the first goal for Newcastle, which was assisted by Jacob Murphy. 

David Raya committed an error that assisted Newcastle's second goal. After Ivan Toney scored against his old club, Guimaraes netted again less than two minutes later. Miguel Almiron and Ethan Pinnock also scored.

Brentford were first to have the ball in the back of the net, Bryan Mbeumo running on to a Shandon Baptiste flick and slamming through Nick Pope’s legs. However Toney was ruled to be interfering with play as he moved out the way of the ball while offside, and the effort was ruled out by VAR.

Instead Newcastle took the lead, Kieran Trippier brilliantly curling in a far-post cross from deep after a short corner with Guimaraes heading home.

Newcastle boss Howe, speaking to Match of the Day, said of Guimaraes: “He was outstanding. We really missed him when he was out [as he is] a quality player who helps us in every phase.”

United doubled their lead thanks to a howler from Raya, who passed straight to Callum Wilson. He played square for Murphy to strike past covering defender Ben Mee.

Toney made it 2-1 from the spot after Aaron Hickey headed against Dan Burn’s raised arm, but one minute and 57 seconds later Guimaraes restored the two-goal advantage as he won the ball from Hickey near the halfway line, drove forward and struck to Raya’s right from 25 yards.

Brentford were their own worst enemies as they were caught playing out from the back again, Pinnock selling Raya short with an under-hit pass that Almiron burst on to and slammed home.

Pinnock was again at fault for number five, sticking a boot out right in front of Raya to deflect a low cross from the left past his own goalkeeper.
