Newcastle United Prediction – Can Newcastle pull out of bottom three?

It’s still very early days of course but I can’t help feeling that this fixture and the outcome of this evening’s clash in the north-east could well contribute to the final placings come May as Newcastle United seek all three points to lift themselves out of the bottom three and alleviate some of the early pressure on Magpies boss, Steve Bruce.

Bruce’s appointment wasn’t greeted unanimously with open arms at St James’ Park and as the hosts have still yet to register a win at home this season in the Premier League, the pressure is firmly on Bruce to deliver a win against fellow strugglers, Brighton, this evening.

So far, Newcastle have picked up just 1 point on home turf this season which was thanks to a 1-1 draw with Watford last time out at St James’ Park, but The Magpies had previously been handed a 1-0 defeat by Arsenal in their opening home game of the new season.

Newcastle’s only success so far in this campaign came in the shape of a surprising 1-0 win away at Tottenham, but they’ve gained only 2 wins out of their last 8 matches in the Premier League, and the natives are starting to get restless already.

Brighton Prediction – Can Brighton move up table?

Saturday evening’s visitors, Brighton, make the long trek up to the north-east having failed to win any of their last 4 matches overall in the Premier League although they have picked up points at home with draws against West Ham and Burnley, both at home and both in 1-1 draws.

A 2-0 loss at home to Southampton was a tough result to take especially as Brighton would consider themselves to be on par with The Saints in terms of pecking order in the top flight, but Brighton’s last match away from home ended in a resounding 4-0 loss to Manchester United at Old Trafford.

Brighton’s results away from home in the Premier League have been poor for some time as The Seagulls have registered just 2 away wins out of their last 13 matches on their travels, a sequence that includes 8 defeats, so Brighton manager, Graham Potter, will be desperate to see his side avoid defeat here.

The glimmer of hope is that Brighton have avoided defeat in their last 2 visits to St James’ Park and the longer they can contain Newcastle here, the greater the pressure will be on the players from their fans’ expectations.


Key-Facts – Newcastle United v Brighton

  • Newcastle United have won just 2 of their last 8 matches overall in the EPL
  • 7 of the previous 8 meetings between these two sides have ended under 2.5 goals
  • Brighton are unbeaten in their last 2 visits to St James’ Park v Newcastle Utd


Betting Tips Verdict

Newcastle United should win this one but the level of expectancy might work against them if Brighton can put up stubborn resistance.
