Brighton host Newcastle in the Premier League at The Amex on Monday night. The Seagulls are 15th with, six points clear of the relegation zone with two games to play. They have a nine-goal advantage over Bournemouth even if the Cherries were to make up the points deficit. They welcome a Newcastle side that is currently 13th in the table. The Magpies could still finish as high as 11th. Brighton boss Graham Potter will be confident that his side can avoid defeat as they have done on the last five occasions they have played Newcastle. The reverse fixture earlier in the season was a forgettable goalless draw. Potter would take that now, for it would be a result that would end a run of three consecutive home defeats. Newcastle aren’t nearly as impressive away from home as those sides and they have lost four of their last six matches away.
Neal Maupay got on the scoresheet on the last occasion that Brighton won at home, 2-1 against Arsenal, and he was among the goals during their 1-1 draw at Southampton. He is Brighton’s top goalscorer with 10 and would be a decent first-goalscorer bet here. Four of the last five matches between these two teams have featured fewer than two goals.
