After losing their first two Premier League matches of the season, it looked as though Newcastle were going to be in for a long hard slog. That’s all changed just a few weeks later as the Magpies have won three on the bounce and are sitting pretty in fourth. Newcastle have another good opportunity to pick up three points on Sunday afternoon when they travel to the south coast to take on Brighton. The Seagulls have had some tough afternoons since winning promotion but they claimed their first ever Premier League the last time they were at the Amex Stadium and will be targeting another win when Newcastle come to town.

A little over 4,000 fans were in attendance to watch Burton’s win over Fulham on Saturday. The majority of those in the Pirelli Stadium went home happy as Burton secured their second league victory of the season and many of them will also be present at Old Trafford on Wednesday when Burton take on Man Utd in the Carabao Cup. The win over Fulham was a big result for Burton but it would be nothing compared to a win over Man Utd. United won yet another Premier League match 4-0 against Everton on Sunday and we all know how much this competition means to Jose Mourinho. The defending champions are in rude health and ready to get their League Cup campaign off to a winning start.
