Newcastle United Preview – Can Magpies extend unbeaten run?

Newcastle United’s revival under manager, Eddie Howe, has seen The Magpies put together a solid seven-match run without a defeat and the hosts will be keen to extend this run at St James’ Park on Saturday when they play host to Brighton.

Four wins in these last seven games have seen Newcastle record victories over Leeds United, Everton, Aston Villa and Brentford and they’ve also picked up useful points in draws with Manchester United, Watford and West Ham as well.

However, goals may be in short supply as six of Newcastle’s last seven games have been under 2.5 goals.

Our betting suggestion:
Over 2.5 goals

Brighton Preview – Can Seagulls remain in top half?

Brighton had also put together a decent seven-match unbeaten run in the Premier League previously, that is until The Seagulls were subsequently handed three defeats on the trot in the top flight, losing to Manchester United, Burnley and Aston Villa respectively.

Brighton have now dropped down to 10th place as a result but performances away from home continue to be cause for optimism for the south coast club as Brighton have lost just twice away from home all season, while goals have been in short supply – 10 of Brighton’s 13 away games have also been under 2.5 goals.
