Newcastle United vs. Brighton Match Analysis and Prediction

After starting their 2020-21 campaign with a win, Newcastle will extend their lead this weekend. The home side will be playing host to Brighton on Gameweek 2. The match schedules for Sunday at St. James Park with kickoff at 4 pm.

Seagulls started on a low note on the opening fixture after a 3-1 defeat to Chelsea. Despite a powerful show in the first half of the match, a penalty by Jorginho was enough to dismantle the side.

One standout feature during the match was young sensation right-back Lamptey, who was on fire against his former side. Graham Potter will enjoy having secured the services of the young right-back this season.

Brighton managed to shake off the last defeat with an emphatic 4-0 win over Portsmouth in the Carabao Cup. Mac Allister was on the score sheet on their last time out, and this presents a considerable prospect for Potter.

Despite heavy speculations of a move away from St. James Park over the past six months, Steve Bruce looks keen on extending their current form. In two weeks, Steve Bruce managed to produce two impressive results with a win over West Ham and Blackburn Rovers. The weekend will prove a hard one for Steve Bruce, especially with the impressive defensive record with their weekend opponents.
