Brighton vs Newcastle Predictions and Betting Tips
Brighton vs Newcastle Key Stats:
- Brighton beat Newcastle home and away in the Premier League last season.
- Newcastle are winless after ten Premier League fixtures this term.
- Brighton have only lost two of their ten league assignments in 2021/22.
- Brighton scored six times over two meetings with Newcastle last season.
Brighton impress at Anfield
Brighton added to their ever-growing reputation last weekend when they clawed their way back from two goals down to parity in a pulsating 2-2 draw with title-hopefuls Liverpool at Anfield.
Efforts from Enock Mwepu and Leandro Trossard allowed the Seagulls to claim a share of the spoils on Merseyside and though the tie pushed Albion’s winless run in the Premier League to five fixtures, the reaction to their performance has been unanimously positive.
On Saturday, Brighton have a huge opportunity to post their fifth win of the season however, when a Newcastle side they beat 3-0 both home and away last term visit the Amex Stadium.
Newcastle continue to flounder
The January transfer window cannot come quickly enough for Newcastle and their beleaguered supporters, though the Toon Army are certain to have further disappointment to endure before they can splash all of their new cash on recruits early next year.
Newcastle were beaten 3-0 in routine fashion by Chelsea last weekend, suffering their sixth defeat in ten Premier League fixtures along the way. Only whipping boys Norwich have collected fewer points than United since the summer and the Canaries are the only club between Newcastle and bottom spot.
In their last away test, Newcastle stole an undeserved point at Crystal Palace, though they cannot rely on luck alone against Graham Potter’s impressive Seagulls on Saturday evening.
Brighton vs Newcastle Predictions
Brighton have been playing like a potential top eight finisher in the Premier League this term and their performance against Liverpool at Anfield last weekend highlighted just how potent a force they can be.
Newcastle meanwhile are still winless this season after ten rounds of fixtures and having lost heavily to the Seagulls twice last term, we recommend opposing the Magpies again on their latest trip to the Amex Stadium and the odds on a home win are too good to pass up.
In addition, Brighton rattled the net six times without reply in their successive 3-0 victories over Newcastle in 2020/21 and Albion could be worth backing in the over 1.5 team goals market against the hapless Magpies again on Saturday.
Only Norwich (25) have shipped more Premier League goals than United (23) since the campaign kicked off and Brighton should be able to hit a brace past that porous backline.
