The match between Brighton & Hove Albion v Newcastle United.

The two automatically-promoted sides play at the Amex Stadium with Newcastle, who have won three in a row, are five points ahead of a home side that lost from a leading position at Bournemouth last time out. Has their impressive form merely masked Rafael Benítez’s transfer window frustrations or is something significant gathering speed? Their former manager, Chris Hughton, will put that to the test and Brighton will need to beknow his side need to be as good as they were in their last home game, when Pascal Gross inspired them to a 3-1 win over West Brom.
