Two sides that will be looking to bounce back in the Premier League before the international break will lock horns on Saturday. Newcastle come into this game on the road after losing each of their last two in the Premier League. The most recent of those saw them throw away a 1-0 advantage before being beaten 2-1 at St. James’ Park by Liverpool last Sunday.
While the Magpies have lost each of their last two, their overall record in the Premier League remains reliable. Before their defeat against Man City at the Etihad, Newcastle had lost just once in their previous 15. The Magpies haven’t lost three games on the bounce since April 2022. However, Newcastle are without an away win against Brighton since February 2017.
Brighton will also be looking for a response this weekend, as they were swatted aside by West Ham United in their most recent fixture. That 3-1 defeat against the Hammers was their first loss of the season after winning each of their opening two. However, the Seagulls haven’t lost back-to-back Premier League games since October 2022.
Games involving Brighton have been entertaining affairs so far this term, as the Seagulls have recorded the most shots, shots on target, and touches in the opposition box of any side in the Premier League. Brighton are also unbeaten in their last six Premier League home matches against the Magpies.
Brighton vs Newcastle Prediction
This should be an enjoyable fixture in the Premier League on Saturday. Newcastle are a little too short in the betting for our liking considering that they are without an away win against Brighton in six visits. Therefore, we will be siding with a score draw this weekend.
