Newcastle boss Benitez speaks about his side's top four chances

Rafael Benítez will no doubt see it as another winnable game as United look to establish themselves as top-half contenders.

Ritchie swapped Premier League football with Bournemouth for a season in the Championship with United.

Brighton go into the clash on the south coast having taken four points from their opening five games - their worst start to a league season since 2009.

Newcastle face Brighton at the Amex Stadium this Sunday.

Striker Glenn Murray is back in contention along with captain Bruno after he recovered from a recurring back trouble.

Aleksandar Mitrovic is suspended for the game, while left-back duo Paul Dummett and Massadio Haidara are ruled out with hamstring and knee injuries respectively.

This will be the 15th league meeting between these two clubs, but the first in the English top-flight.

Rafa Benitez will set off for Brighton insisting a revenge mission will the the last thing on opposite number Chris Hughton's mind.

They are also 23/20 (2.15) to score last, which translates to a probability of 47%.

However, owner Mike Ashley revealed last month that the club can not compete with the Premier League's big spenders, even with the additional TV revenue, and Benitez had to settle with just six new additions to a Championship-level squad.

Rafa Benitez's side have won their last three Premier League games and are fourth in the standings, one point behind champions Chelsea.

But Benitez admits there could be little to choose between the teams despite the Magpies now sitting in fourth place with Brighton hovering just above the relegation zone. "And he is using all of those coaching skills to make this United side one of the most organised in the whole of the Premier League". The new deal voids the previous terms of his loan agreement, barring him from performing against Newcastle.

A draw would be a good result for the visitors, they should take that all day long.
