Brighton will assess the fitness of defender Dan Burn, who missed the draw at

Anfield with a knee problem.

Forward Aaron Connolly could be fit after a minor heel injury but Danny Welbeck and Steven Alzate

are long-term absentees.

Newcastle United’s interim head coach Graeme Jones has a fully-fit squad to choose from apart from
injured defender Paul Dummett.

Goalkeeper Freddie Woodman is available again after a muscle problem.

Newcastle’s new owners found out the hard way that they should not do their negotiations in public when

their interest in Villarreal boss Unai Emery was leaked this week – and he chose to stay put.

It looks like Eddie Howe is their main managerial target now and he would fit the bill because he is used to

fighting a relegation battle, which is what they are in.

The sooner the new manager is in place, the better, because this is a big month for Newcastle.

After the international break, three of their next four games are at home against Brentford, Norwich and Burnley.

Brighton are unbeaten in all eight Premier League meetings won four and drew four and have conceded just

one goal in those games.

Newcastle have faced Brighton without recording a top-flight victory more times than against any other side..

The Magpies have won only two of their past 16 matches against Brighton in all competitions.

Brighton’s tally of 16 points is their most after 10 games of a top-flight season.

Failure to win would make this Newcastle’s worst ever start to a league season.

Only Norwich have conceded more top-flight goals than the 23 by Newcastle this season, while Watford are the only

side other than the Magpies to fail to keep a clean sheet so far this season around.
