Newcastle vs Brighton Preview

The Premier League clash of Newcastle vs Brighton in the upcoming weekend promises to be a crucial tie for both clubs as they look to close out their season on a high. Newcastle are in the mix for a potential European spot with teams like Chelsea and Man United closely following them in the race. The last few games of the season could be the deciding factor in where the Toons will end up in the Premier table for this season.

On the other hand, Brighton just registered their first league win in a while as they drubbed Aston Villa at home. The Seagulls hit a rough patch as they struggled to win points lately under Roberto De Zerbi, marked by injuries to some of their key squad players. They will be hoping to continue their winning momentum when they take on Newcastle in an away-from-home clash.

The key factor could be the midfield battle when both these teams meet this weekend. While Newcastle has players like Longstaff and Bruno Guimaraes in the middle of the park, Brighton is also well-equipped with players like Billy Gilmour and Pascal Gross. It remains to be seen how things unfold in the fixture.
