Brighton and Hove Albion vs Newcastle United

, KO: 17:30 Sep 3, 2023, AMEX Stadium
Newcastle United

BRIGHTON and NewcastleUnited both suffered chastising home defeats last week and will both be desperate to put matters right when they meet in a Saturday night showdown.

Newcastle were one of the most talked-about teams last season after an excellent campaign under Eddie Howe and they opened their campaign with a sensational 5-1 home annihilation of Aston Villa.

But they've been brought down to earth with defeat at champions Manchester City, which certainly could be excused. And far worse was to follow when they somehow chucked away a one-goal lead at home to ten-men Liverpool to lose 2-1, despite Virgil van Dijk being sent off after just 28 minutes. There were no excuses for that.

The manner of that defeat must have been a serious jolt to their confidence and should never have happened.

But Brighton were also stunned by a 3-1 home defeat to improving West Ham United where they were three goals down after just over an hour.

They were well and truly outdone by the Hammers' counter-attacking style and it ended a fine start to the season after a pair of 4-1 wins in a row against Luton Town and Wolves.

So both teams will be desperate to get back to winning ways when they meet on the south coast.

How the bookies view it

There's the proverbial Rizla paper between them in the betting with both teams hovering around the 6/4 mark generally.

Brighton can be backed at 31/20 with bet365, while there is 13/8 available for Newcastle United with William Hill. The draw is 11/4 with Paddy Power.

Recent head to heads

The last two meetings at the Amex have finished in draws, although Newcastle thumped Brighton at St James' Park last season in a 4-1 win.

Players to watch

Solly March has already scored three goals for three games this season for the Seagulls and he is 4/1 to score anytime with UniBet.

Anthony Gordon scored a fine goal last week against Liverpool and the ex-Everton man is an increasing threat for Newcastle. He is 27/5 to score anytime on Saturday night with UniBet.

Anything else catch the eye?

Both teams will be bruised after last week's setbacks and the call here is a third draw in a row between the clubs at the Amex.

Out of the six games both sides have played combined this season, both teams to score has obliged on five occasions. Brighton in particular seems to have goals as a gimme with over 2.5 goals in eight of their last nine games.

So although over 2.5 goals and both teams to score is a tad short at 4/6 with bet365, it looks nailed on.
