Brighton vs Newcastle live stream: How to watch Premier League fixture online and on TV tonight

Saturday night’s Premier League match could prove one of the most crucial of the closing stages of the season in the fight to avoid the drop, as Brighton host Newcastle United.

The two clubs have sat just outside the relegation zone for most of the campaign, with the Seagulls one point better off than the Magpies with 10 matches left to play – though they also have a notably better goal difference.

A win over Southampton last time out ended a run of three straight defeats for Graham Potter’s men, moving them above Newcastle in a timely boost to their survival hopes. Meanwhile, Newcastle themselves have drawn three in a row and are without a win in five – Saints were also the last side they were victorious against.

Both managers have been largely bullish about their chances of staying in the top flight, as might be expected, but that seems to have been misplaced optimism at times given the poor form they have both shown.

Here’s everything you need to know ahead of the game.

What is the team news?

The hosts are still battling against a long list of absences, with Aaron Connolly, Solly March, Adam Webster and Tariq Lamptey all out. Dan Burn is also a doubt.

Newcastle will be without key attacking pair Allan Saint-Maximin and Callum Wilson, but Miguel Almiron should be fit. Fabian Schar is missing in defence.

Predicted line-ups

BRI – Sanchez; Veltman, White, Dunk, Burn; Gross, Lallana, Bissouma, Trossard; Maupay, Welbeck

NEW – Dubravka; Krafth, Lascelles, Clark, Dummett; Willock, Shelvey, Hayden; Joelinton, Murphy, Almiron

Odds

Brighton – 7/10

Draw – 27/10

Newcastle – 29/5

Prediction

Back-to-back wins at a key moment in the season for Brighton would be huge for their chances of staying up – and might just hammer home to Newcastle how poor they have been this term. Brighton 2-1 Newcastle.
