Newcastle United still doesn’t have its new boss and now faces an up-and-coming Brighton and Hove Albion managed by one of the brighter minds in the game (start time 1:30pm ET Saturday on NBC and online via NBCSports.com).
Graham Potter and Brighton are on 16 points, just four back of the top four, but they’ll be looking to Newcastle as a route out of a slump.
The Seagulls have played Newcastle well over the years and now meet a team that is winless and has been decidedly outplayed in two matches under interim boss Graeme Jones.
Brighton is winless in five but four of those are draws and the loss was to Man City. Draws came against Arsenal, Liverpool, Norwich City, and Crystal Palace.
Here’s everything you need to know ahead of Brighton vs Newcastle.

Honestly? There’s always a chance with Allan Saint-Maximin, Callum Wilson, and Co. in the Newcastle lineup but Graeme Jones didn’t look like he wanted his men to go for it against Palace and obviously played it safe versus Chelsea. Will he try to go out with a win for his boyhood club, or let Brighton move the ball around and hope for a draw? Either way, Brighton 3-1 Newcastle.
