Brighton team news & predicted XI vs Newcastle United

Roberto De Zerbi’s high-flying Seagulls look to rebound against Newcastle United on the south coast after Brighton suffered a frustrating 3-1 defeat against West Ham United last weekend

Predicted XI

Team News

Roberto De Zerbi could name a relatively unchanged XI at the weekend in a difficult clash against Champions League participant Newcastle United on Saturday despite the Seagulls being checked by West Ham last weekend in what could go down as a shock result given the balance of play last time out.

The Italian tactician will be without two senior members for the weekend fixture as Jakub Moder remains unfit for service, while Paraguayan starlet Julio Enciso is out for a “long period” after suffering a knee injury in training. Expect João Pedro to come into the team behind the center forward, but otherwise, little change is expected.
