Newcastle United take on Brighton and Hove Albion in the Premier League tomorrow, and the Magpies are under pressure to pick up all three points.

Steve Bruce’s team have failed to win their last five league matches and are in danger of losing their top-flight status.

The Magpies have failed to score in six of their last eight away league games and are missing key attackers like Callum Wilson and Allan Saint-Maximin for this fixture.

The visitors will need a bit of luck the score against a well-organised Brighton defence, especially without their top forwards.

Brighton have an impressive record against Newcastle, keeping a clean sheet in six of their last seven matches against the Magpies in all competitions.

The home side will be hoping for another shut-out given how poor Newcastle have been in attack recently.

Bruce will also be without defender Fabian Schar who is injured, but Miguel Almiron has a chance of returning to action, and it will be a huge boost if he is declared fit to play.

Ryan Fraser is expected to make way for 26-year-old Jacob Murphy after failing to impress against Aston Villa last time out.

Predicted Newcastle starting line-up: Dubravka, Krafth, Lascelles, Clark, Dummett, Willock, Shelvey, Hayden, Joelinton, Murphy, Gayle.
