Brighton v Newcastle United - Is it on TV? When is kick-off and what's the latest team news?

Newcastle United will look to make it back-to-back victories to start the season when they face Brighton this weekend.

Both teams come into this game on the back of a winning start to the season after Graham Potter’s side spoiled Erik ten Hag’s first game in charge of Manchester United.

The Seagulls were very impressive at Old Trafford and will be eyeing a repeat performance in their first outing in-front of their home support.
