Newcastle vs Brighton preview & prediction 

Match preview

The stakes are high for both Newcastle United and Brighton & Hove Albion as they square off at St. James’ Park on Thursday.

Last Saturday, Leeds United held Newcastle United to a 2-2 draw as Callum Wilson’s two penalty kick goals weren’t enough. Luke Ayling gave Leeds United the advantage in the seventh minute.

The Magpies’ third-place standing in the Premier League standings appears precarious after their recent two losses. On a point-for-point basis, they are tied with fourth-place Manchester United. Despite having played one more game, Liverpool is only one point behind them.

In their last eight Premier League games, Newcastle United has failed to keep a clean sheet, reflecting a recent decline in their defensive fortitude.

On Sunday, Brighton & Hove Albion effectively put an end to Arsenal’s title defence. The Seagulls kept their chances of making it to Europe alive by scoring three goals in a row against the Gunners.

With Tottenham Hotspur now behind them, Brighton has moved up to sixth place in the Premier League and will be eager for another strong showing against Eddie Howe’s team on Thursday.

Newcastle vs Brighton prediction

This one is set up to be a thriller. There will be a lot of pressure on both teams because there is so much at stake. The Magpies have struggled defensively this season, and Brighton has performed admirably on the road.

After defeating Arsenal 3-0 at the Emirates, the Seagulls will also be more motivated than usual, and they might surprise Newcastle United on Thursday.
