Newcastle United made a bright start to their 2022-23 league campaign, defeating the newly promoted Nottingham Forest 2-0 on August 6. And then, a week later, Eddie Howe’s side struggled against Brighton, away from home, but managed to earn a pont. The Magpies were clearly not at their best against the Sea Gulls as they managed to create only four goal-scoring chances, while recording only one shot on target.

And then, after the break, an own goal from Jefferson Lema helped the Cityzens seal the victory.
