With just one defeat at home all season, Brighton currently have the best home record of any side in the Championship.

The Seagulls have won 13 of their 17 games at the AMEX Stadium this term, with Brentford the only side winning there all the way back on September 10.

Since then, only Preston, Aston Villa, and Ipswich Town have taken points off Hughton’s men, which equates to a return of 36 points from a possible 42 – an unbeaten run of 14 matches.

Their 3-0 success over promotion-hopefuls Reading on Saturday further demonstrated their title credentials, and they certainly won’t be afraid of Benitez’s Newcastle this evening.
