Seagulls Survive with Clipped Wings
Brighton may be safe but the prospect of finishing consecutive seasons with under 40pts looms large.
The pressure is off all round at the Amex Stadium with both teams now assured of Premier League football for another year. Newcastle have known this for a little while and are a stretch at 17/5 with BetVictor, even allowing for their injury problems.
The Magpies have been a bit better than their hosts this season and Brighton need to be opposed after a run of just 2 wins in 14 league matches. That those successes came against Norwich, and in the 95th minute against a rusty Arsenal, tells the story of a team struggling on the whole.
The Seagulls have lost their last three at home, conceding three in each outing. Without the fans, it doesn’t resemble a fortress by any standards.
