Newcastle United welcomes Brighton & Hove Albion in a game from the 9th round
Newcastle is having a very difficult start of the season. The Magpies are currently in the relegation zone, being 19th in the league with just 2 points won so far. They are still without a win in the league, having a record of 2 draws and 6 defeats. It’s really a tough time for Rafa Benitez’ team.
In their last game, Newcastle conceded another defeat, losing with 2-3 against Manchester United at the Old Trafford. Newcastle got an early lead of two goals, thanks to the strikes of Kenedy and Yoshinori Muto, but in the last 20 minutes, United managed to score three goals and won the game. It was disappointing for the Magpies, but at least we saw some courage from them. At least in the first half.
Brighton & Hove Albion are 13th in the Premier League standings with 8 points won so far and a record of 2 wins, 2 draws and 4 losses. In their last match, Brighton enjoyed a win, beating West Ham United with 1-0. The big hero of the day was Glenn Murray, who put the ball behind Lukasz Fabianski’s back after 25 minutes of play.
Brighton & Hove are doing much better than Newcastle since the start of the season, but it doesn’t mean that the Magpies won’t try to win this one. Especially at home. In the first half against Manchester, United Newcastle showed their strength. But can they do it again? And this time – for the whole match?
That’s what we had to say about the Premier League clash between Newcastle United and Brighton & Hove Albion.
