Paul Merson's predictions

I watched Newcastle three weeks ago against Leicester and they had one shot on target from 60 yards. Then they go to Manchester United and they should have got something from the game. They'll be kicking themselves that they didn't get a positive result at Old Trafford. That defeat will have hurt but they can take positives from what was, on the whole, a good performance.

Brighton are not the best side away from the Amex Stadium. If I'm being totally honest they are very, very poor on the road. For that reason I'm going to side with Newcastle in what will be like a cup final for them. It's a must win for Rafael Benitez and his side.
