Newcastle United vs Brighton Preview:

Europa-chasing Brighton and Hove Albion travel to St. James’ Park to face third-placed Newcastle in what is an important game for both teams. Eddie Howe’s side were held on to a 2-2 draw at Elland Road in what was a very eventful game for the Neutrals to watch. Patrick Bamford missed a penalty after Ayling had fired the hosts into the lead. Newcastle came back into the game courtesy of two Callum Wilson penalties but a late Kristensen deflected effort meant two points dropped for the Magpies. Two games without a win now keep Newcastle above Manchester United only on goal difference, following the Red Devils’ slip-up against the Hammers. Despite having the joint-best record in the league for goals conceded, Eddie Howe’s side have now conceded in 16 of their last 17 matches in all competitions. Despite the recent slip, the recent form of both of their strikers still keeps the Magpies favorites to finish in the top 4 as they look to earn all three points tonight having lost just twice on home turf.

Brighton meanwhile come into this game on the back of a morale-boosting 3-0 victory against the Gunners, virtually knocking them out of the title challenge. Roberto De Zerbi before the game warned Arsenal about Brighton bouncing back from the 5-1 mauling against Everton, and quite evidently they did. The Seagulls now look to have cemented the sixth position as they look to challenge Liverpool for fifth, currently seven points behind the Reds with two games in hand. De Zerbi’s side have now scored 12 games in a row and the league’s second-highest scorers away from home as they next face a Newcastle side with just 1 clean sheet in their last 17 matches. A lack of clean sheets though could mean a high-scoring encounter tonight with brilliant individual attackers on display from both sides. Contrasting to their present stats, both sides settled for a 0-0 draw in the reverse fixture at the Amex, however, odds would predict a different scoreline otherwise this time around – if not necessarily the result.
