Newcastle United welcome Brighton at the St. James’ Park on Saturday afternoon, with both teams looking to get back to winning ways in the Premier League. Newcastle suffered a 0-1 home loss at the hands of the current leaders Manchester City in midweek, with the visitors scoring the winner just after the half-hour mark. Meanwhile, Brighton lost 2-0 on the road at the reigning champions Chelsea on Tuesday, with Chris Hughton’s men conceding both goals in the second half.

Betting Predictions and Tips

It’s pretty difficult to separate these two sides at the moment. Newcastle have lost each of their last five home games in the Premier League, scoring just twice in the process. Meanwhile, Brighton have suffered defeats in each of their last four away games in the Premier League, scoring none in this term. With both teams in such poor goalscoring form, we expect a low-scoring game here.

Newcastle United Preview

Newcastle United’s form over the past three months has been disappointing, as they have only won twice in their last 15 games in the Premier League. They did well to beat West Ham 2-3 away from home last weekend, but lost 0-1 at the hands of Manchester City on Wednesday. The Magpies haven’t played that bad, but unfortunately they were unable to grab any point from their meeting with the Citizens. This leaves Newcastle 15th in the Premier League table tied on 18 points with Crystal Palace and West Ham, just one point clear of the relegation zone. Their recent form at the St. James’ Park has been terrible as they are currently on a five-game losing streak. The most worrying fact is that Newcastle have only scored once during this abysmal run. The positive thing is that Newcastle beat Brighton 2-0 in front of their own fans in their most recent home meeting with the Seagulls. Head-to-head, Newcastle have won two of their last three home meetings with Brighton across all competitions, scoring at least two goals in each of these.

Newcastle United Team News

Aleksandar Mitrovic and Jesus Gamez are both missing through injury, while Isaac Hayden is a doubt.

Brighton & Hove Albion Preview

Brighton were on a two-game unbeaten streak in the Premier League prior to their 2-0 defeat at Chelsea in midweek. Brighton haven’t conceded too many goals of late, but unfortunately, they were unable to grab some positive results in this term. Their Premier League form over the past month and a half have seen them win just two, draw three and lose five of their last ten league outings. The good news is that the Seagulls still sit on a comfortable 12th spot in the standings with 21 points after 20 rounds, four points clear of the drop zone. Away from home, Brighton are currently on a four-game losing streak in the Premier League, scoring none in the process. Actually, Chris Hughton’s men have failed to score in seven of their last ten away games across all competitions. In addition, they haven’t found the back of the net in their most recent visit to the St. James’ Park. Actually, Brighton hold the third worst attacking record in the division with just 15 goals scored in 2 rounds.

Brighton & Hove Albion Team News

Jonah Ayunga is out through an ankle injury, while Steve Sidwell is a doubt.
