Brighton & Hove Albion welcome fellow newly-promoted club Newcastle United at the Amex Stadium on Sunday night. While Brighton currently sit one place above the relegation zone in 17th spot, Newcastle are flying high on the back of 3 consecutive wins and are currently placed 7th in the league table.
Brighton lost 2-1 to Bournemouth last Friday with Solly March getting on the scoresheet for the Seagulls. Newcastle, on the other hand, beat Stoke City 2-1 with Christian Atsu and Jamaal Lascelles scoring for the Magpies and Matt Ritchie grabbing two assists.
