Albion boss Chris Hughton is after a win not revenge against Newcastle

Last weekend, Newcastle wasted a host of chances, particularly Joselu who could and should have had a hat-trick, and you have to feel that Rafa's players won't often be as lucky this season if so wasteful again in front of goal.

Newcastle United travel to Brighton and Hove Albion on Sunday, hoping to make it four straight wins in the Premier League.

"At the moment I am only thinking about getting three points at Brighton and that's it".

The 24-year-old Nigeria global joined the Etihad Stadium outfit from Austrian Wien this summer after notching 17 goals in 33 games in the Austrian Bundesliga last campaign.

Asked if the move had strengthened a Premier League rival, Benitez added: "We have enough goalkeepers in terms of numbers".

"Hopefully, we can continue to perform well". You have to use the tools you have - we have a hard-working team with a good spirit. Yes, I have seen the table, but I am not really concerned about that.

"As a side and a way that they play, they're reasonably similar to ourselves and perhaps that's why they were close games last season".

"I said after the last game that we still have plenty of room for improvement and we are trying to improve in attack and defence". Last year was last year, it was another competition, everything will be different.

"My main responsibility is to ensure they approach each game with the same intensity". "The mentality is the same as it always is for every game". Their competitors duly took advantage, having done the double over the Seagulls, and on Sunday, they are 19/10 (2.90) with SportPesa to beat them for the third time in little over a year. I'm sure that Chris will try to win against us and I will try to win next week.

"I know it can be about your form, fortune and luck on the day, but for whatever points we get, you'd think that on the law of averages they'll be against the teams outside that top seven".
