Brighton & Hove Albion vs Newcastle United betting tips: Premier League preview, predictions and odds

Match preview

Having enjoyed a statement victory on the opening day, will Brighton & Hove Albion make it two wins out of two?

Last Sunday, the Seagulls stunned Old Trafford, racing into a 2-0 first half lead through Pascal Groß's double.

Graham Potter’s side dominated and, even after Manchester United halved the deficit, saw out the victory relatively comfortably.

This was much to the relief of goalkeeper Robert Sánchez, who’s trajectory misjudgement of a corner led to an Alexis Mac Allister own goal.

Four of the five times Brighton have beaten Man United have featured Groß goals, the other coming nine years before the German was born.

Having won at Old Trafford for the very first time, there is optimism that Graham Potter’s side can better last season’s ninth-place finish, the best in the club’s history, so far.

Another very happy set of supporters are those of Newcastle United; they also saw their team make a winning start a week ago.

The Toon Army saw off Nottingham Forest at St James’ Park 2-0, thanks to Fabian Schär’s rocket and then Callum Wilson’s deft flick.

Centre-back Sven Botman came off the bench for his debut in that one, but could come into the starting XI here.

So, this one could certainly go either-way at the Amex.
