The English Premier League returns this weekend before the third international break of the season, with Brighton and Hove Albion hosting Newcastle United on Saturday.
Brighton and Hove Albion began the campaign in a brilliant manner as they won all but one of their first seven games across all competitions.
The Seagulls have derailed their campaign since then as they are winless in their last six games. However, Brighton and Hove Albion picked up an impressive 2-2 draw against Liverpool last time out and will be looking to build on that.
Brighton and Hove Albion sit eighth in the league table with 16 points from 10 games. They will be looking to return to winning ways when they host Newcastle United at the weekend.
Newcastle United are one of two teams yet to win a Premier League game this campaign. Chelsea comfortably beat them 3-0 on home turf in their last game, with Newcastle struggling to test the visitors.
Newcastle United sit 19th in the Premier League table, two points above Norwich City at the bottom of the pile. They will be looking to quickly get a good run of results to preserve their top-flight status.
