The second half is underway. 
Brighton haven’t been at their best, with the changes to the side not really helping their rhythm. They do have some good options on the bench, however, such as Mac Allister, Enciso and Ferguson. 
The first half comes to an end and Newcastle fully merit their two-goal lead which was given to them by an own goal from Deniz Undav and a header from Dan Burn. Eddie Howe’s side seem to be on their way to what could be an important win in terms of Champions League qualification.

The game is underway. 
The teams are in the tunnel at St James’ Park, with kick-off rapidly approaching. 
Deniz Undav came off the bench to make a major impact against Arsenal with a goal and the forward will now be looking to impress from the start. 
Newcastle need six points from their last three games in order to guarantee a place in the Champions League. 
Meanwhile, six points from four games would see Brighton get into the Europa League. 
After their shock 5-1 defeat to Everton, Brighton responded in emphatic style by beating Arsenal 3-0 last weekend. They now take on another side in the top four as they look to finish the season strongly. 
This is an intriguing battle between two teams who have different European aspirations.
Newcastle are in third place and are pushing for Champions League qualification, while Brighton, who are sixth, are aiming to qualify for the Europa League. 
Goalkeeper Robert Sanchez is again not involved for Brighton, which according to manager Roberto De Zerbi is at his own request.
Jason Steele keeps his place in goal for the Seagulls. 
Newcastle persist with the same team that drew against Leeds.
There are four changes for Brighton, with Facundo Buonanotte, Deniz Undav, Danny Welbeck and Jan Paul Van Hecke starting in place of Alexis Mac Allister, Julio Enciso, Evan Ferguson and Levi Colwill, with the latter not in the matchday squad. 
Steele, Caicedo, Van Hecke, Dunk, Estupinan, Gross, Gilmour, Buonanotte, Undav, Mitoma, Welbeck.
Subs: McGill, Mac Allister, Enciso, Ayari, Ferguson, Offiah, Moran, Peupion, Samuels. 
Pope, Trippier, Schar, Botman, Burn, Joelinton, Bruno Guimaraes, Willock, Almiron, Wilson, Isak.
