      TEAM NEWS


      Brighton captain Bruno has overcome the back problem that caused him to miss last week's defeat by Bournemouth.

      Glenn Murray and Gaetan Bong are both fit, while Izzy Brown could return from a hamstring injury.

      Newcastle will be without suspended forward Aleksandar Mitrovic, while Paul Dummett is still sidelined by a hamstring injury.

      French full-back Massadio Haidara remains unavailable because of a long-term knee problem.


      MOTD COMMENTATOR'S NOTES

      Jonathan Pearce: "Mo Diame's equalising goal at Brighton in February was a complete fluke. But it was significant.

      "The Geordies went on to win that in the dying seconds and from then they've had a psychological advantage over the Seagulls. They pipped them for the Championship title and they've looked the more comfortable top-flight team.

      "But this is where the worm can turn. Brighton deserved far more from their two games against Bournemouth. The pace and movement of Jose Izquierdo, Anthony Knockaert and Solly March can unsettle Newcastle.

      "With the loud Amex crowd also playing a major role, I'll go for a desperately-needed home win."


      WHAT THE MANAGERS SAY

      Brighton & Hove Albion manager Chris Hughton: "As a side and a way that they play, Newcastle are reasonably similar to ourselves and perhaps that is why they were close games last season...

      "We are at home and we have to try and capitalise on our home form, but we know that we are up against a very good Newcastle side that are in good form."[/b]

      Newcastle manager Rafael Benitez: "We are in a good position, we have momentum. We have confidence that we can get three points and Brighton will have the same feeling."

      MATCH FACTS

      Head-to-head

      • Newcastle were the only team to do the double over the Seagulls in last season's Championship, including scoring two goals in the last 10 minutes to win 2-1 at Brighton.
      • This is the first-ever top-flight meeting between the clubs.


      Brighton

      • Brighton's only Premier League victory so far this season came in their last home game, when they beat West Brom 3-1.
      • The Seagulls have used 16 players in this season's Premier League, fewer than any other side.
      • Pascal Gross has been involved in all four of Brighton's Premier League goals this season, with two goals and two assists.
      • Chris Hughton has not won any of his six league matches as a manager against his former club Newcastle (D2, L4).


      Newcastle

      • After beginning the Premier League season with back-to-back defeats, Newcastle have now won their last three matches.
      • Matt Ritchie has provided four assists in those three games. His total of 11 assists in the league since the start of last season is more than any other Newcastle player.
      • If Newcastle win, their tally of 12 points would be the third best by a promoted club after six matches of a Premier League season. The two clubs to beat this - Blackburn Rovers (14 in 1992-93) and Nottingham Forest (14 in 1994-95) - went on to finish fourth and third respectively.
      • Jamaal Lascelles could become the first Newcastle defender to score in three top-flight games in a row since 2011. All four of his Premier League goals have been headers from corners.
      • Newcastle have had the youngest average starting XI in the Premier League this season, aged 25 years and 208 days.
      ● A 21-year-old man from Shoreham was arrested at the Amex stadium on suspicion of throwing a pie at Wilfried Zaha ●

      Massive game - getting a win ahead of the bottom three even at this stage ups the pressure on the bottom 3 more.

      Just another magic Sunday
      I surrender all control
      To the desire that consumes me whole
      Leads me by the hand to infinity
      Lies in wait at the heart of me - the Albion of course !
