Did you know?

Brighton & Hove Albion have won 16 points already this season (W4 D4 L2), their most ever after 10 top-flight matches in a campaign. Two defeats is their joint-fewest at this stage of a top-flight season, equalling their record in 1981/82.

Brighton are unbeaten in their eight Premier League meetings with Newcastle United (W4 D4), conceding just one goal across those contests. The Seagulls won both of last season's meetings 3-0.

Newcastle striker Callum Wilson averages a goal or assist every 50 minutes at the Amex Stadium in the Premier League (two goals, two assists), scoring in both starts there when he played for AFC Bournemouth. Among the 152 players to have played at least 200 minutes at the Amex, Wilson has the best minutes-per-goal or assist ratio at the stadium.

Newcastle have failed to win any of their opening 10 league matches this season (D4 L6). They have never had a longer winless start to a league campaign. They last went more than 10 league matches without a win between December 2007 and March 2008 (13 matches).
