Brighton 0 Newcastle 0 – Watch official match highlights (don’t laugh) here including all the goals…
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.
