Newcastle United and Brighton and Hove Albion will face each other in the Premier League this coming weekend. The match between the Magpies and the Seagulls will be held at St. James’ Park and is scheduled to kick off at 3 pm UK time on Saturday.

Newcastle United

Newcastle United are in form now and could end up having a good season in the end. The Magpies finished in the top four of the Premier League table last season, and although they are not going to do as well in this campaign, they are certainly in with a chance of clinching a European spot.

Eddie Howe’s side are sixth in the Premier League table at the moment with 56 points from 35 matches. Newcastle are four points behind Tottenham Hotspur, who are fifth. The Magpies could finish sixth or even fifth.

Newcastle will head into the Premier League match against Brighton and Hove Albion at St. James’ Park this coming weekend on the back of a 4-1 victory over Burnley away from home at Turf Moor in the league. It came after a 5-1 hammering of Sheffield United at St. James’ Park in the Premier League which followed a 2-0 loss at the hands of Crystal Palace at Selhurst Park in London in the league.

Team News:

Newcastle United are likely to line up in a 4-4-2 formation against Brighton and Hove Albion. Martin Dúbravka will be in goal for the Magpies and will have Tino Livramento, Emil Krafth, Dan Burn and Lewis Hall in front of him in defence. Sean Longstaff and Bruno Guimaraes will be the two holding midfielders. Jacob Murphy and Anthony Gordon will be the two wingers. Callum Wilson and Alexander Isak will lead the line for the Magpies.

Brighton and Hove Albion

Brighton and Hove Albion did extremely well last season. Roberto De Zerbi’s side ended up as high as sixth in the Premier League table and were expected to push on in this campaign. However, things have not been great for the Seagulls this campaign, and there is a distinct possibility that they will not even end up in the top half of the standings.

De Zerbi’s side are as low as 11th in the Premier League table at the moment with 47 points from 35 matches. Brighton have been really dire this season, and it will be interesting to see what they do in the summer, whether they change their manager and/or make new signings.

Brighton will head into the Premier League match against Newcastle United at St. James’ Park this coming weekend on the back of a 1-0 victory over Aston Villa at home in the league. It came after a 3-0 defeat at the hands of Bournemouth on the road in the Premier League which followed a 4-0 loss to Manchester City in front of their fans.
