A pair of winners from the opening weekend of the Premier League meet as Brighton host Newcastle United on Saturday afternoon.

The Seagulls condemned Erik ten Hag to a losing debut as Manchester United manager last Sunday with a thoroughly deserved 2-1 win at Old Trafford. Newcastle overcame less lofty opposition in the form of Nottingham Forest but denied the newly promoted outfit a single shot on target.

Here's everything you need to know about the meeting between these two swift starters.

Brighton team news

Brighton showed few signs of missing arguably their two best players from the previous campaign - Yves Bissouma and Marc Cucurella - against Manchester United last weekend. Aside from that departed duo, the only blemish on Brighton's squad is the continued absence of Jakub Moder, who is at the start of his recovery from a "very complex and severe" ACL injury.

Newcastle team news

Jonjo Shelvey is set to be sidelined for three months after undergoing surgery on his hamstring at the start of August.

Otherwise, Eddie Howe is juggling a glut of minor niggles and strains peppered across the squad. While Javier Manquillo has resumed training, Federico Fernandez and Jamal Lewis are on the brink of returning themselves.

Emil Krafth and Jamaal Lascelles (who pulled out during the warm-up) were kept out of the opening day win with thigh injuries that aren't thought to be severe.

Newcastle predicted lineup vs Brighton

Newcastle Starting 11: Pope; Trippier, Schar, Burn, Targett; Willock, Guimaraes, Joelinton; Almiron, Wilson, Saint-Maximin
Bench: Dubravka, Dummett, Murphy, Botman, Longstaff, Fraser, Wood

Brighton vs Newcastle score prediction

Home comforts weren't entirely comforting for Brighton last term - only four teams collected fewer points in front of their own fans - but the Seagulls did end the season with eight points from their final four games at the Amex.

Boasting a brilliantly coached and devilishly flexible squad that comes into the contest on a high, Brighton may be able to outmanoeuvre a Newcastle team that has started solidly but may lack a little punch.

Prediction: Brighton 2-0 Newcastle
