This is the Newcastle United team to face Brighton - predicted XI

Newcastle United go to Brighton this weekend in search of back-to-back victories.

Eddie Howe’s side enjoyed a comfortable opening day win over Nottingham Forest - but they face a tough test against Graham Potter’s side this weekend.

Brighton come into the game on the back of their first ever win at Old Trafford after putting in a complete performance against the Red Devil’s.

Newcastle will need to be on their game if they are to win their first ever Premier League match at the Amex Stadium - but they can travel to the south coast full of confidence in a settled starting side that is continuing the momentum built-up at the end of last season.

But will Howe opt to stick with a tried and tested starting team, or will he change a winning side?

Here, we take a look at the Newcastle United starting side that Howe could select for the trip to face Brighton & Hove Albion:
