Our football match prediction:
Newcastle United and Brighton, the two relegation-threatened teams, face each other at St. James’ Park on day 21 of the new Premier League campaign. The Magpies have been playing below expectations in the English top flight this term and, no doubt, coach Rafa Benitez feels pressure ahead of the last game of the year. Newcastle United are on a four-game losing run at home, but they are definitely capable of picking up all three points from Saturday’s football match against Brighton. The Seagulls failed to score in previous four away games in the national championship and, taking everything, we predict the visitors are going to return home empty-handed. You should bear in mind that the Magpies recorded their last win at home on October 21 when Mikel Merino broke the deadlock in the dying minutes of the match against Crystal Palace. Anyhow, home win should be considered as Brighton’s displays on the road leave a lot to be desired.
Highlighted Player (Paul Dummet):
Paul Dummett is a product of Newcastle United’s youth school. His main position is left back, but he is capable of playing as a centre back as well. The defender was born on 26 September, 1991 and he played for the likes of Gateshead and St. Mirren on loan in the past. Dummett returned to Newcastle United in 2013 and he featured in 18 games for the Magpies in the 2013/2014 Premier League campaign. On the last day of the season. he made a hard tackle on Liverpool attacker Luis Suarez and, in turn received death threats from Uruguay fans on Twitter. The Newcastle United defender scored one goal in 23 appearances for the club in the 2015/2016 Premier League campaign, but he did not help the St. James’ Park outfit avoid relegation to the Championship. Paul Dummett plays for Wales and he made his debut for the Dragons on June, 2014 against Netherlands. It has to be noted that Dummett won the Scottish League Cup with St. Mirren in the 2012/2013 season.
