It ended Brighton 0 Newcastle 0.

A game which saw Newcastle United record a fourth Premier League game this season where they had only one shot on target, whilst on another three occasions they didn’t have a single one.

Grateful for small mercies then!

Unlike Newcastle, Brighton did at least try to attack, after a fashion.

Martin Dubravka making a few smart saves.

However, with Newcastle defending so deep, for all Brighton dominated with 62% possession (they had 71% in the 0-0 at St James Park) chances at a premium.

Watch the official ‘highlights’ here to see for yourself how it all played out.
