Match Preview

  • Brighton and Hove Albion head into their final home game of the season with just two wins since the restart (D2, L3). Just five goals scored in that time highlights a faltering attack that has scored just 1.03 goals per league game on average this season. Still, the ‘Seagulls’ remain hard to beat as their 13 draws is the second most in the division.
  • Looking for just their second home win in eight matches (D3, L4), Brighton have lost three in a row here in ugly fashion, conceding 3.67 goals on average across those, and shipping precisely two in each first half. Each of their five home wins this campaign has, however, been marked by them scoring 2+ goals, while six of their seven losses at the Amex saw them fail to score.
  • Newcastle United, meanwhile, have little to play for in the remaining two Premier League (PL) rounds, and they’ve tellingly lost three in a row – conceding 3.33 goals on average in those. Indeed, goals have flowed in Newcastle games since the resumption, with six of their eight competitive matches in this period featuring over 2.5 goals.
  • Away from home, their three most recent PL matches averaged 4.33 total goals, while the average seen in their away league games this season is 3.06. Newcastle themselves have scored 2+ goals in five PL away matches this season (W4, D1), while failing to score altogether in seven (L7). Seven of their eleven league defeats away from home came after trailing at HT.
  • Players to watch: Leandro Trossard (BRI) has two first-half goals in his last four PL matches. Similarly, Dwight Gayle (NEW) has three in his last six in the league; opening the scoring in all three matches.
  • Stat attack: Five PL H2Hs since 2017 have produced just four goals at 0.8 on average.
  • Eight of Brighton’s 13 PL draws have ended 1-1 (61.54%).
  • There’s been at least one first-half goal in each of Newcastle’s last five PL matches.
