Description: NEW Vs BHA Team Probable Playing 11 And Match Report: Intriguing contest on our hands today as Brighton look to push Newcastle United all the way.
After seeing their club’s takeover collapse prior to the new season of the Premier League, Newcastle United’s ardent supporters were left miffed. This looked set to be another long and stretched out season, one where a lack of spending and investment in the squad would lead to the side dishing out mediocre results.
However, in this backdrop, the two goal win against West Ham in the side’s league opener is exactly what everyone needed. Albeit far from a perfect display, the fact that Newcastle got the job done with all their new signings shining in the triumph is all that matters, a performance which managed to silence the noise engulfing the club prior to the start of the season.
It’s a showing which the side will be looking to build on as it looks to accrue early points in the season. And up against a Brighton side which was been way too vulnerable defensively, Newcastle United know they can extend their winning spree to two matches come this Sunday.
However, Newcastle United will not take this clash easily. Equipped with a new look defensive setup, Brighton showed glimpses of what they can offer this season by staving off Chelsea’s attacking threat for a large part of their showdown in gameweek one.
However, the 3-1 defeat for them exulted the work the club needs to carry out before they can embark on a winning run. And its this wavering backline which will see Newcastle United register a win today.

CHE vs LIV Picks
Matthew Ryan was far from his best the last time around but the Brighton man will still be snagged by us as our goal-keeper for today. The goal-keeper is usually a safe pair of hands, someone whose expertise have traditionally served the side well.
There was hefty talk about Jamal Lewis and Newcastle United’s new signing showed exactly why the club reposed such faith in him. The leftback pulled off an impressive shift, one which saw him make his presence felt all across the park to see him end up with an assist on the day.
Managing to keep West Ham at bay in their season opener, Newcastle United will see two more names be ingrained in our side from the club. Both Jamaal Lascelles and Javier Manquillo took centrestage in that cleansheet to see us opt for the duo from the side.
Elsewhere, Brighton see us unearth fullback Tariq Lamptey for this fixture. Entrusted by the club over Veltman, Lamptey showed why he’s held in such high esteem as he managed to stave off Chelsea’s attack along with pulling off an assist for his club.
When Burnley decided to let go off Jeff Hendrick, questions were raised over the club’s decision. And Jeff’s showing the last time around showed exactly why with the new Newcastle United signing pulling off a goal and assist in his debut for the club.
Jonjo Shelvey, the club’s top scorer from last year with seven goals to his name will be our second pick from the club. We also have Allan Saint-Maxim be snared by us with his searing speed always making him a threat for the side going forward.
Another new entrant who hit the ground running immediately for Newcastle United was striker Callum Wilson. After enduing a torrid second half last term, he will be looking to redeem himself and show everyone what he’s capable of.
Brighton meanwhile will see us opt for a duo over here. We begin with Leandro Trossard who scored for the club against Chelsea with last season’s leading scorer, Maupay partnering up with him.
Captain And Vice-Captain
Wilson’s goal against West Ham sees him be our captain for today while Hendrick is the vice-captain.
