Brighton out to halt Magpies' rise
Brighton will be looking to stop in-form Newcastle when the Magpies travel to the south coast on Sunday.

The two promoted sides, who competed fiercely for the Championship title last season, get the chance to go head-to-head in the Premier League for the first time ever this weekend.

Newcastle, on offer at n/a, have had the better start to life in the top flight as, after losing their first two games, Rafa Benitez's men have now won three on the bounce and are up in fourth place in the table. Albion, on the other hand, have won just once, against West Brom a couple of weeks ago, and are in 16th place before this weekend's games.

Despite the two sides' differing early-season form, this clash is likely to be tight as they renew their rivalry from last season but Brighton will need to be better up front if they are to halt Newcastle's charge up the table.

Chris Hughton's side have managed just four goals so far and appear to lack a much-needed goalscorer that threatens their ability to stay up this season. Despite a substantial summer recruitment drive, the Seagulls lack Premier League experience throughout their squad and relying on the likes of veteran Glenn Murray or Chelsea loanee Izzy Brown for goals might not serve them too well.

Brown could be back for Sunday following a hamstring problem, while Bruno and Gaetang Bong are both also in line to return from injuries.

Newcastle have impressed recently with Joselu, Matt Ritchie and captain Jamaal Lascelles, who has scored two goals in two games, all particularly catching the eye. Benitez is without forward Aleksandar Mitrovic on Sunday, while defender Paul Dummett is still sidelined by a hamstring injury.

Brighton, available at n/a, will be backed by a fervent Amex Stadium home crowd and if creative players Jose Izquierdo and Anthony Knockaert perform they will cause Newcastle problems and they will have identified this game as one where three points is very much up for grabs.

Prediction: Home win n/a.
