Newcastle News and Form – Can Magpies pick up three points at St James’ Park?

Newcastle will head back to the northeast this week after a 3-1 loss at Liverpool last weekend. Their defeat there left them with a W1 D1 L3 return from their league efforts this season. Their lone victory happened out on their travels as they produced a shock win at Spurs at the end of August. They backed that up with a draw in their following game against Watford. But they are winless with a D1 L1 record on home soil though. They are looking for their first home clean sheet as well.

Under 1.5 goals

William Hill

Newcastle have seen under 2.5 goals in 7 of their last 8 matches against Brighton in all competitions. This may not be a high scoring affair. It has been just one home win from Newcastle in their last five played. They have failed to take a clean sheet there as well in six. The two home games of the Magpies this season in the EPL have both been sat level at the halftime break. Newcastle have conceded the opening goal in three of their fixtures this season. No Newcastle player has scored more than one goal this season.

Brighton News and Form

Brighton have claimed one point more than what Newcastle have managed this season. It is a W1 D2 L2 record that they have taken. However, the Seagulls have now failed to win 13 of their last 14 top-flight games. They did almost bag one last weekend at home against Burnley but were denied at the death in settling for a 1-1 draw. The one win that Brighton did take in that sequence of form, was out at Watford on the opening weekend of the 2019/20 campaign.

Their other away games this season was at Man City. Brighton lost that 4-0. They are playing well and are looking to be positive. Brighton have scored 80% of their league goals this season in the second half of fixtures. 75% of their goals conceded have been in the second half of fixtures. The Seagulls have conceded the opening goal in three games this season. Because of injury, they are looking a little light up front, notably with Leandro Trossard missing. Both of their defeats this season have been by a margin of at least two goals.

Newcastle v Brighton Predictions

Newcastle to win: This just has a draw written all over it in our opinion. The Magpies have been better since their poor start to the season, but still, look a long way from being great. Brighton are playing a positive game, but it’s a tricky road trip up north. Draw.
