In the postponed match of the 25th day of the Premier League, Thursday evening, Newcastle beat Brighton (4-1), to take a good option in the race for the top 4.
This 4-1 win Newcastle on Brighton, Thursday evening, in the match postponed from the 25th day of the Premier League, has a huge impact in the race for European places.
Before the last two days of the championship, Newcastle is 3rd with 3 points ahead of Manchester United, who still have 3 games to play. But the Magpies are above all 4 lengths ahead of Liverpool, the 5th.
For his part, Brighton, 6th in the standings, misses a great opportunity to come back to 4 points behind the Reds. The Seagulls still have one game less and can however hope to afford 6th place ahead of Tottenham.
The residents of St James’ Park, who remained two games without a win before facing the untenable team of Roberto De Zerbi, came out with a game of great efficiency to win.
A corner from Kieran Trippier provoked the csc of Deniz Undav (22nd), then a new cross from the English side allowed Dan Burn to double the lead with a fine header just before half-time (45th + 4).
Undav revived the suspense (51st), but Newcastle held on and Callum Wilson made a carnage against at the very end of the match, scoring the 3rd goal (90th), before serving Bruno Guimaraes for the 4th (91st). In an atmosphere of madness.
