Chris Sutton Predictions

Some Brighton fans were complaining it wasn’t mentioned in the discussion about what happened manchester united on sunday But they did.

The Seagulls are a really good team under Graham Potter and a really good watch as well.

But so is Newcastle.loved the way they started the season vs Nottingham Forest.

Forest didn’t do well, but Newcastle showed enough willingness to move forward.

I love watching Eddie Howe’s team and expect this to be a very expansive game.
