Newcastle United failed to maintain their good run of form on Sunday evening, as they lost to Brighton and Hove Albion away from home.

The Magpies headed into the Premier League game at the American Express Community Stadium on the back of a 2-1 victory over Stoke City at St. James’ Park in the league.

Rafael Benitez’s side were in great form ahead of the match against the Seagulls on Sunday evening, having won all of their previous three league fixtures.

It was going to be hard for Newcastle to win at Brighton, and they failed to pick up even a point from Sunday’s encounter.

Tomer Hemed’s goal in the 51st minute proved to be the difference between the two sides at the American Express Community Stadium.

Newcastle legend Alan Shearer was following the match, and he was far from impressed with the performance of Benitez’s team.

Former Brighton player Adam Virgo has praised the display produced by the Seagulls on Twitter.
