Newcastle United will clash heads with Brighton and Hove Albion at the American Express Community Stadium on Saturday evening as they try to grind out a result on the road. The Magpies suffered a poor 3-0 defeat against Chelsea last weekend, so they will be desperate to secure their win of this Premier League campaign versus the Seagulls.

The Tyneside outfit could set themselves up in a 3-5-2 formation and are expected to make some changes to his first XI for this game. Martin Dubravka might get a start in this game at the expense of Karl Darlow who would drop to the bench.

Martin Dubravka could operate in goal for the Magpies as he looks to keep things solid at the back this weekend. Newcastle United could opt for a back three of Ciaran Clark, Jamaal Lascelles and Emil Krafth for this game. All three centre-backs would have to find a way to maintain a good defensive shape at the back if they are to stand a chance of securing a clean sheet away at Brighton this Saturday evening.

Fabian Schar will offer cover for the defensive positions on the bench. Paul Dummett won’t be available for selection this weekend.

Miguel Almiron, Isaac Hayden and Joe Willock will function as the Magpies’ central midfielders as they focus on making life difficult for Brighton at the centre of the park. Matt Ritchie will function as the left wing-back while Javier Manquillo fills in down the right flank.

Jonjo Shelvey and Joelinton will have to settle for a place on the bench but could come on to make an impact in the second half if needed.


Allan Saint-Maximin and Callum Wilson will get a chance to impress as the centre-forwards for the Tyneside giants up top. Both of them will be responsible for collectively producing a fruitful display in front of the Brighton goal.

Dwight Gayle will be named on the bench as he waits for his chance to shine in the second 45 minutes if required.
