both Newcastle And Brighton As the two come together, they will want to finish their campaign strong. Premier League the season is about to end.
The home team seemed in a good position to secure a top-four break, but a defeat to Arsenal and a draw against Leeds means Eddie Howe’s team cannot afford to stumble home as Liverpool is fast closing.
Newcastle have a game on hand in fifth place, but are currently just one point ahead in third place.
Meanwhile, Brighton also have European ambitions of their own – they have four more games to play and a win here will solidify their place in the Europa League qualifiers.

Newcastle is unlikely to have any new injury concerns as Matt Ritchie, Emil Krafth, Sean Longstaff and Jamaal Lascelles are not included in Eddie Howe’s squad. The manager has paired Alexander Isak and Callum Wilson against Leeds and can deploy the pair in forward tandem again.
Roberto De Zerbi is dealing with a series of injuries and the Brighton manager doesn’t have many options, especially on the right side of his defence. However, there are no new complaints following the win over Arsenal, due to Julio Enciso’s issue at the end of the match which caused De Zerbi to be taken out of the game late in the match.
Newcastle XI: Pope; Trippier, Schar, Botman, Burn; Joelinton, Guimaraes, Willock; Almiron, Wilson, Isak.
Brighton XI: Steel; Caicedo, Dunk, Colwill, Estupinan; Gross, Gilmour; Mitoma, Mac Allister, Enciso; Ferguson
