Michael Owen reveals staggering stat during Brighton vs Newcastle prediction

Michael Owen is predicting a goalless draw ahead of tomorrow’s trip to Brighton – revealing how the Seagulls have failed to score in all of their last SEVEN games.

It must be said that this covers Brighton’s results in their last 7 games in all competitions, but this staggering stat still highlights just how out of form Chris Hughton’s side are – especially in front of goal.

Here’s what Owen’s had to say during his latest prediction piece, revealing why he’s expecting a stalemate tomorrow night:

“Brighton have failed to score in seven successive games in all competitions and I don’t expect to see a goal-fest at the Amex at the weekend.

“The Seagulls have defended stoically in recent games and it is possible that their point at Molineux last weekend might be the difference between survival and relegation.

The Seagulls begin the weekend three points above the drop zone with a superior goal difference to Cardiff.

“A point against Newcastle might be a good result depending on the result at Craven Cottage.”

Owen’s tip: Game to finish 0-0.

Here’s Brighton’s results in their last seven games, showing just how much they’ve struggled to score goals of late:

  • Tottenham 1-0 Brighton
  • Wolves 0-0 Brighton
  • Brighton 0-2 Cardiff
  • Brighton 0-5 Bournemouth
  • Man City 1-0 Brighton
  • Chelsea 3-0 Brighton
  • Brighton 0-1 Southampton

Looking at their results at home this season, they’ve not scored more than 1 goal at the Amex since a 3-1 win over Palace in early December, suggesting we are good value for at least a point if we can find the back of the net in this one.

That said, with Arsenal and Man City to come in their final two games, this is a game they must be pushing to win – especially when they’re still just 3 points clear of third bottom Cardiff.

Here’s what former NUFC boss Chris Hughton has had to say ahead of our trip to the Amex tomorrow night:

“I think they’re a good side and they’ve played a system for a good period of the season and it suits the players they’ve got.

“They’re in very good form. It will be no different to any team coming here who we have to do our homework on and try to look at our strengths and see any areas we can be positive in.”
