Brighton is gearing up for a historic season, as they will participate in European football for the first time in their club’s history. Under the leadership of Roberto De Zerbi, who took charge after Graham Potter’s departure to Chelsea, Brighton secured an impressive sixth-place finish last season. They showcased their potential with stunning victories against top-tier teams such as Manchester United, Liverpool, Chelsea, and Arsenal.

Despite a narrow 4-3 defeat to Chelsea in their Summer Series opener, Brighton exhibited their attacking prowess. Even with 10 men on the field after Jan Paul van Hecke’s red card, they kept creating chances and managed to score two goals. Their resilience and attacking style have earned them respect among the Premier League teams. Before their league opener against Luton Town, Brighton will face Rayo Vallecano on their return to the UK next week. They are eager to continue their fine form and make an impact in European competitions.

On the other hand, Newcastle had a thrilling start to their Summer Series, drawing 3-3 with Aston Villa. Eddie Howe’s side displayed resilience, coming back from 2-0 and 3-2 down to secure a draw. However, their defensive performance has been concerning this pre-season. After boasting one of the best defensive records last season, they have already conceded five goals in two games against Gateshead and Aston Villa.

The upcoming season will pose a significant challenge for Newcastle as they juggle the demands of the Premier League and their return to the Champions League after a 20-year absence. They will face tough opponents with European pedigree in the Sela Cup, including Fiorentina and Villarreal. Their league campaign starts with a rematch against Aston Villa, and Newcastle will be eager to improve their form from the end of last season when they won only one of their last five games.
