PREVIEW: KNOCKAERT BACK IN THE FOLD FOR NEWCASTLE

25 April 2019

Anthony Knockaert returns from his three-match suspension.

Brighton & Hove Albion play their penultimate home game of the season against Newcastle United on Saturday, kick-off 5.30pm — the first of three crucial matches for the Seagulls in their battle to avoid relegation from the Premier League.

Cardiff City will have finished their match at Fulham by the time Albion and the Magpies take to the field at the Amex Stadium, which means Chris Hughton’s side could find themselves level on points with the Bluebirds.

Albion were just minutes away from securing a precious point at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium on Tuesday evening, but Christian Eriksen’s 88th-minute goal snatched maximum points for Spurs in north London.

Newcastle head to the Amex on the back of consecutive victories over Leicester City and Southampton, which secured their Premier League status for another season.

The match will be shown live on BT Sport, with the pre-match coverage getting underway at 5pm.

TEAM NEWS

Hughton confirmed that Davy Propper will miss Saturday's match due to a hamstring injury, but Anthony Knockaert returns from his three-match suspension and could be included in Albion's 18-man squad that takes on the Magpies.

Miguel Almiron suffered a hamstring injury in Newcastle’s win against Southampton and will remain sidelined for the remainder of the season.

Fabian Schar and Isaac Hayden are slight doubts for the Magpies, while Florian Lejeune and Sean Longstaff will both miss this weekend’s game at the Amex.

FORM

After taking a point from a hard-fought 0-0 draw against Wolverhampton Wanderers last Saturday, the Seagulls came agonisingly close to repeating the feat against Spurs on Tuesday night.

Albion have proven themselves hard to beat in recent away fixtures, but three consecutive defeats at the Amex have increased the need for a positive result on the south coast.

The Magpies lost their opening two matches in April against Arsenal and Crystal Palace respectively, but back-to-back wins over Leicester and Southampton have made amends.

Newcastle have won just three away matches in the Premier League this season — 15 teams have won more on the road than Benitez’s team.

LAST TIME WE MET

Albion’s 1-0 victory at St James’ Park back in October came in the middle of three consecutive victories for the Seagulls, all by the same narrow scoreline.

However, there was drama after just 15 minutes of the match when Glenn Murray clashed heads with Federico Fernandez, which saw the Albion frontman leave the field on a stretcher.

The deadlock was broken just before the half-hour mark when Jose Izquierdo fired towards goal from the edge of the penalty area, and the ball deflected off Beram Kayal for the Israeli’s first Premier League goal.

The hosts pushed for an equaliser but couldn’t break down Albion’s stubborn defence, as they claimed their first away clean sheet of the season.

PLAYER TO WATCH: Ayoze Perez

The forward has hit double figures (10) in the Premier League for the first time in his Newcastle career, most recently firing a hat-trick against Southampton at St James’ Park.

The 25-year-old has featured in 34 of Newcastle’s 35 league games so far this season, proving to be an integral part of Benitez’s side that secure their top-flight status with three games to spare.

Perez also scored the winning goal in their 1-0 win at the King Power Stadium earlier this month, which came after having involvement in all three of Newcastle’s goals in their 3-2 win against Everton.

REPORT: ALBION CLAIM HARD-EARNED POINT IN PUSH FOR SURVIVAL

Glenn Murray and Pascal Gross celebrate Albion's equalising goal against Newcastle at the Amex.
  • Ayoze Perez opens the scoring for Newcastle
  • Pascal Gross heads important equaliser for Albion
  • Albion move four points clear of Cardiff City
  • The Seagulls are next in action away at Arsenal

Brighton & Hove Albion secured another point in their battle for Premier League survival after a hard-fought 1-1 draw against Newcastle United at the Amex Stadium.

A second-half header from Pascal Gross cancelled out Ayoze Perez’s opener to move Albion four points clear of the bottom three with two games left, after Cardiff City were beaten 1-0 at Fulham earlier in the day.

Chris Hughton made four changes to the side that lost 1-0 to Tottenham Hotspur on Tuesday, as Bruno, Beram Kayal, Jose Izquierdo and Glenn Murray all came into the starting line-up.

There was little that seperated the sides in the opening quarter of an hour, but Newcastle struck first with 18 minutes played through Perez, after Salomon Rondon chested the ball down to the former, who fired past Maty Ryan from close range.

Chances were otherwise few and far between in a very cagey opening half hour, as Albion struggled to make inroads into the Newcastle defence.

The visitors were dealt a blow after being forced into an early change, when goalscorer Perez was replaced by Kenedy.

Maty Ryan was called into action to keep the deficit at just one moments later, when Fabian Schar was allowed to work his way into the box, but the shot-stopper managed to claim the ball.

Hughton freshened up his forward options by bringing on Solly March in place of Florin Andone, but it was Murray that had Albion’s first chance after the re-start. Gross floated in a free kick towards the Seagulls frontman, whose glancing header went wide.

Albion were then forced into making a change of their own, as Kayal came off after receiving treatment and Yves Bissouma entered to partner Dale Stephens in midfield.

March looked to work his way into a shooting position after cutting in off the right flank, but the winger saw his shot blocked. Then, from the resulting corner, Shane Duffy rose highest in the box to meet Gross’s delivery and saw his header go just wide.

March cut in off the right again to find Gross inside the box, and the German’s back-heeled cut-back just missed Murray at the far post.

But Albion were rewarded for their improved display after the break as Bruno’s cross was headed down by Murray into the path of Gross, and the German headed past Martin Dubravka to level the scores.

There were still nervy moments for the Seagulls, after Javier Manquillo flashed a delivery across the face of goal with Ryan at full stretch.

Murray had a golden opportunity to get the winner late on after meeting Knockaert’s inswinging cross, but his header from deep inside the box went over the bar and the points were shared.

ALBION: Ryan; Bruno, Duffy, Dunk, Bernardo; Gross, Stephens, Kayal (Bissouma 49); Izquierdo (Knockaert 66), Murray, Andone (March 46).

SUBS NOT USED: Button (GK), Bong, Burn, Locadia.
