Newcastle United vs Brighton & Hove Albion Prediction: Premier League Match on 20.09.2020
The Premier League action continues this weekend with an interesting fixture between Newcastle United and Brighton & Hove Albion. But, will the Magpies be able to win their second consecutive game of the new season?
Premier League Preview
There is a lot of hope of Tyneside ahead of this season, as the club have invested money into the team over the pre-season. There have been some excellent new additions made to the club, with Ryan Fraser, Callum Wilson and Jeff Hendrick brought in. The latter two of those new additions both made their impact on their debuts as they both found the back of the net.
Wilson opened the scoring ten minutes into the second half against West Ham United, before Hendrick doubled the lead with an excellent with three minutes remaining. Steve Bruce opted to play two up front in that season opener with Andy Carroll partnering Wilson, and the new tactic seemed to work. Bruce will likely stick with the same 4-4-2 formation for this second game of the season against Brighton.
Brighton may have been beaten in their season opener but there was no shame in their performance against Chelsea. The Seagulls were excellent against the big-spending Blues. Leandro Trossard pulled Graham Potter’s side level in that game ten minutes into the second half. However, Chelsea were able to raise their game to score two goals in the final 35 minutes.
Regardless, there is promise that Brighton could improve on their league position from last term, as the club have invested wisely. Adam Lallana was brought in from Liverpool, while right-back Tariq Lamptey was the star of the show on his Brighton debut. However, Potter will be keen to get a first three points of the season to separate themselves from the relegation places.
Newcastle United vs Brighton & Hove Albion Head To Head
Newcastle have never beaten Brighton in the top-fight of English football. The Seagulls have won two of the six meetings in the Premier League, with four matches between the sides ending in draws.
Newcastle United vs Brighton & Hove Albion Prediction
This should be an interesting game. Both sides will be aiming for a top-half finish this season after they have both improved their squads over the summer. It is difficult to separate them, which means that the draw could be the most likely result at St James’ Park.
