Newcastle's home goal drought continues - the stats
The Magpies have scored just two goals from 71 shots in their six league games at St James' Park since the start of November (2.8%).
This was the fourth time that Brighton have drawn 0-0 in the Premier League this season, a joint-league-high alongside West Bromwich Albion.
In fact, this was the 11th time that Brighton have failed to score in 21 Premier League games this season; the most in the competition level with Crystal Palace and Swansea City.
Newcastle made seven changes to their starting XI in this match (from their last game vs Man City) - this is the most that a side has made in a Premier League game this season.
This is the fourth successive Premier League game that Newcastle have made at least five changes to their starting line-up from the previous game.
It's a quick turnaround for Newcastle who are in action on 1 January, travelling to Stoke for a 15:00 kick-off.
