Allan Saint-Maximin, Kieran Trippier and Joelinton latest: Newcastle United injury list in full ahead of Brighton clash

Newcastle United are looking to extend their Premier League unbeaten run to eight matches when they host Brighton & Hove Albion at St James’s Park on Saturday (3pm kick-off).

The Magpies are yet to lose a league match in 2022 and boast the best defensive record in the English top flight since the turn of the year. The turnaround in form has seen Eddie Howe’s side climb up to 14th in the table, four points clear of the relegation zone.

But in order to continue their good form, they will have to get a result against a Brighton side they have notoriously struggled against since the two sides were promoted to the Premier League in 2017.

Brighton are the only current top-flight side Newcastle have never beaten in the Premier League.

And they will host Brighton this weekend without some key players once again with Kieran Trippier and Callum Wilson ruled out but Allan Saint-Maximin potentially back in contention.
