What Trueform says for Newcastle vs Brighton
Newcastle and Brighton are following similar trajectories on our Trueform chart and look evenly matched ahead of Saturday’s Premier League clash at St James’ Park.
Prior to predictable defeats earlier this week, the Magpies secured a stand-out rating for their win at West Ham, while the Seagulls also ranked well for beating Watford.
A Look At Newcastle United’s Betting Odds
Rafael Benitez took an ultra-cautious approach to Wednesday’s 1-0 home loss against runaway leaders Manchester City and was quick to defend his tactics.
He said: “When you play against Manchester City, you have to be aware of the way they are doing things now. You just have to look at what happened when they played against Tottenham, Bournemouth or Swansea.
“We were in the game right until the end, it was very close. Our fans are clever and they know we needed to do things this way.”
However, the Magpies have now suffered five straight defeats in front of their fanatical supporters, scoring in only one of those fixtures.
A Look At Brighton and Hove Albion’s Betting Odds
Brighton showed plenty of resolve to hold out until half-time at Chelsea, only for Alvaro Morata to strike immediately after the break, before Marcos Alonso wrapped up a 2-0 win on the hour mark.
Chris Hughton commented: “When you analyse the game, it wasn’t dramatically different to what you thought it would be. They had a lot of possession, probed, asked questions and we had to defend well.”
That was a fourth straight away loss for the Seagulls, but that sequence also included trips to Tottenham and Manchester United.
Prior to visiting Stamford Bridge, Albion had picked up four points and two clean sheets from home games against Burnley and Watford.
