Brighton vs Newcastle Prediction & Match Preview



20 March 2021 20:00 UK/ 21:00 CET Premier League American Express

Amex Stadium will host Saturday’s Premier League game between Brighton and Newcastle United. 

The Seagulls aim to build on a 2-1 win over Southampton, and we are positive that they will leave their hearts on the field in the relegation six-pointer. 

The likes of Connolly, March, Lamptey, and Webster are all sidelined with injuries, while Burn should be fit to face the Magpies. Newcastle United, on the other hand, are only two points clear of bottom three ahead of the trip to Brighton.

The Magpies failed to win the previous five league fixtures, and given Brighton’s display in the triumph over Southampton, we believe that there is a big value in betting on the home team. 

All Wilson, Saint-Maximin, and Schar are all out of contention through injuries, while important midfielder Almiron is a major doubt. In the first half of the season Brighton crushed Newcastle 3-0 at St. James’ Park.

Team News:

Brighton boss Potter revealed at Thursday's press conference that Dan Burn would train on Friday and should be available this weekend, having been forced off at the interval against Southampton with a tight hamstring.

However, the Seagulls will still be without the services of Adam Webster, Aaron Connolly, Florin Andone, Solly March and Tariq Lamptey for the contest.

Brighton could ultimately be unchanged from the side that started last time out, with Adam Lallana and Danny Welbeck both earning spots in the first XI.

Newcastle will again definitely be without the services of Callum Wilson, Fabian Schar and Allan Saint-Maximin through injury, while Miguel Almiron is also expected to miss out despite making progress in his recovery from a knee problem.

Bruce is expected to resist the temptation to make changes from the side that drew with Villa last time out, meaning that Dwight Gayle should again feature in the final third alongside Ryan Fraser and Joelinton.

Jacob Murphy and Andy Carroll are options for change in the final third, but the midfield three, consisting of Joe Willock, Jonjo Shelvey and Isaac Hayden, is unlikely to be altered for the clash at the Amex.

Brighton & Hove Albion possible starting lineup:
Sanchez; Veltman, White, Dunk, Burn; Gross, Lallana, Bissouma, Trossard; Welbeck, Maupay

Newcastle United possible starting lineup:
Dubravka; Krafth, Lascelles, Clark, Dummett; Willock, Shelvey, Hayden; Fraser, Gayle, Joelinton
