A quick peek at the odds suggests anything but a win for Brighton will come as a surprise when they take on Newcastle Utd at The American Express Community Stadium on Saturday in the Premier League.

Brighton arrive at The American Express Community Stadium with three points to their name after opening the new Premier League campaign with a solid win.Newcastle Utd got what they hoped for in their first match of the season, as they came through the premiere with flying colours by collecting three points.

It is early days yet, anything can happen and both Brighton and Newcastle Utd are still highly motivated of getting off to a good start. They both have talented squads, and we expect a cracking affair at The American Express Community Stadium as the teams look to get one over each other.

When it comes to goal-scoring Brighton could be more prolific, scoring 18 times in their previous ten games. That is an average of 1.8 goals per game in which, they conceded nine times. This is an average of 0.9 a game, achieving a clean sheet four times.

Newcastle Utd are currently decent goalscorers, as they managed a bearable 14 goals in the past ten outings for an average of 1.4 goals a game. Their opponents scored a total of 13 goals, and while Newcastle Utd claimed five clean sheets, they conceded an average of 1.3 goals per match.

Brighton vs Newcastle Utd Prediction

Brighton claimed a modest two wins in their past six home matches in the Premier League. They also drew two and lost two, scored nine goals and conceded seven.

European qualification is the ideal scenario Brighton hope to accomplish by the end of the season, but everything needs to click for this to happen.

Newcastle Utd, meanwhile, won twice, while they've drawn zero and lost four in their last six away in the Premier League.

In a season where everything runs absolutely smoothly Newcastle Utd might be able to surprise. However, a finish inside the top half of the Premier League looks the most realistic scenario.

For whatever reason, Newcastle Utd and Brighton usually find goals tough to come by, when facing each other, and history makes under 2.5 goals our call here.
