With a convincing 4-1 victory over Brighton & Hove Albion at St. James’ Park, Newcastle United made strides towards achieving Champions League status. 

Callum Wilson, who assisted Bruno Guimaraes and scored a late goal, was essential to the victory. With the victory, Newcastle moved up to third position in the Premier League rankings, putting them just outside of the top-tier participation in European football.

As a result of crosses from Kieran Trippier that resulted in an own goal by Deniz Undav and a goal by Dan Burn, the Magpies had a comfortable 2-0 lead at the break.

Undav scored a goal for Brighton early in the second half, demonstrating their tenacity. The Seagulls surged forward, opening up gaps in their defence in an effort to score an equaliser. In the closing moments of the game, Wilson scored for Newcastle as a result of a counterattack. Wilson, who was not satisfied with only one goal, switched roles and set up Guimaraes to make it 4-1.

The team’s performance, especially in the first half, was praised by manager Eddie Howe. He lamented squandered opportunities but said that attention must now turn to forthcoming games, starting with the contest against Leicester City.

Newcastle is tantalisingly close to earning a Champions League spot, but Howe advised caution since there is still much work to be done.

Newcastle’s victory has also improved their chances of finishing in the top four, with the extra benefit of maybe skipping a game if Liverpool loses to Aston Villa. Despite the loss, Brighton is still in the running to play in the Europa League the following year. Following their great victory over Arsenal, manager Roberto De Zerbi made a number of lineup adjustments to keep the team fresh.

As Newcastle maintained their early lead in the game, Undav unintentionally headed the ball from a Trippier corner into his own goal. Burn overcame the Brighton defence in first-half stoppage time to score a headed goal after a Trippier free-kick, extending Newcastle’s lead.

With Miguel Almiron’s close-range shot saved by Jason Steele early in the second half, the Magpies may have won with greater ease. Undav then quickly responded and took advantage of Billy Gilmour’s through-ball to give Brighton some hope.

Wilson’s goal in the 89th minute and his following assist for Guimaraes in extra time gave Newcastle the victory, though.

The Newcastle supporters were overjoyed with the outcome as their club moved closer to a coveted Champions League position.
