This is the team Eddie Howe has named for tonight’s important game against 6th-placed Brighton at St. James’ Park.
It looks like an unchanged side following last time out at Leeds United, as we had expected.
And here is the team that manager Roberto de Zerbi has selected for Brighton.
Not sure why Alexis Mac Allister is on the bench – maybe slight injury?
Newcastle can make a big leap forward towards Champions League qualification with a win tonight, but we will have to be at our best to beat a Brighton side that took apart Arsenal away 3-0 last weekend and were much the better side.
We have to get two wins in our final 3 games to ensure Champions League football for next season.
The remaining games after tonight’s match are against struggling Leicester City at home next Monday night and then Chelsea away on the final day of the season – a week on Sunday, May 28th.
So even without the win tonight, we can still win our final two games – let’s stay positive.
Only slightly more than 60% of fans think we will win this game tonight, which is a little bit of a surprise.
Howay The Bonnie Lads!

As what was witnessed in the 1st half, Isak and Wilson work because it lends itself to the right shape and press that Eddie wants. If you don’t know what they both did in that 1st half maybe football is not for you! Exceptional the pair of them.

If you were looking for solid folks on here to fight in the trenches you would skip the match day comment bunch.
What a load of cowards. White flag gang.

West Ham will be playing in the final for a step up to Europa League next year. That’s one way of getting there.

I also think that’s me promoted to div 1 in FPL. 🙂 Taco, I can still catch you!
I think that’s the top 5 decided in div 2 if my maths is correct…it’s just a matter of the order. In theory I can be caught by 6th but I’ve got way more overall points so I can’t be overtaken.

Aye Munster, the Hinchcliffe is poor, very poor pal.

Pressure alleviated now. We can enjoy these last 2 games.
If Villa get a draw then we’re laughing.,

TDS, catch me if you can!
I am promoted and as things stand I am remain above you. I also beat you in both H2H games.

Incredible performance tonight, I hope some of the niggles and injuries don’t affect the last 2 games too much.
Very hard to pick a MOTM as they were all fantastically committed and really up for it. HWTL

One of the goalkeeper instructors at one my goalkeeping camps in the summer of ’89 was from Sheffield Wed… Matty Clarke I recall

Really don’t think there can be much of an argument over motm.
Almiron, trippier and Joelinton. Could be any of them.
