And we are underway.
Brighton certainly stand out in their green shirts, hopefully they can stand out when the game kicks off.
The teams are in the tunnel and on their way out to the St James pitch.
It could be a special day for Glenn Murray today, with him being just one goal off bringing up a 100 goals for Brighton.
Newcastle lineup also looks strong, but Dummett could be in for a tough reintroduction to the team having to deal with March/Jahanbakhsh with both of them swapping roles throughout the game.
A very attacking lineup from The Seagulls with Jose Izquierdo coming back into the side for Knockaert, looks as if March and Jahanbakhsh will switch between the number ten role and right wing.
Newcastle makes two changes from the side that lost to Manchester United with Paul Dummett and Federico Fernandez coming in for Ciaran Clark and Javier Manquillo.
Brighton make two changes from the side that beat West Ham prior to the international break with Dale Stephens and Jose Izquierdo coming for the injured Davy Propper and Anthony Knockaert, who is on the bench.
Hello everyone, only five minutes till the highly-anticipated team news is released and it will be interesting to see how both sides lineup.
The other key player is The Seagulls main man, Glenn Murray. 

Last season's top scorer for Brighton, has continued to impress with him scoring his fifth goal of the season in the win over West Ham.

Murray now has 99 goals to his name for Albion in two stints at the club and will be hoping to bring up the 100 against Newcastle.

The first of these is record-signing, Alireza Jahanbakhsh. The Iranian winger made his first Premier League star against West Ham with him impressing with his attacking flair and creativity he added.

Also many fans were impressed with the way he wanted to get at the West Ham defence early on.

Jahanbakhsh will be even more confident after returning from international duty with Iran, where he scored the first goal in a 2-1 win over Bolivia in a friendly.
Then we have a couple of key players for the visitors, Brighton.
The second key player is summer signing, Yoshinori Muto. The Japanese striker has been key since joining from Mainz in the summer. 

Muto got his first goal for Newcastle against Manchester United to give them a shock 2-0 lead ten minutes into the game.

The first is on-loan Chelsea Winger, Kenedy who has carried on the brilliant form he showed last season. The Brazilian winger scored the opening goal in the 3-2 defeat to Manchester United, so Brighton full-back Bruno will have a tough afternoon ahead of him.
Starting with the host's Newcastle, who will have two key players that will be key to how they do.
Let's move onto the players that will be key in the game for both side.
With Newcastle's current form and the lack of money Ashley is willing to put into the club at the moment due to him wanting to sell the club, it appears the situation is becoming toxic and the game against Brighton is a must win for The Magpies.
In Newcastle's home game against Leicester at the end of last month, the chant ringing round St James' was 'stand up if you hate Ashley' which shows exactly what the fans think of the owner.
The big headlines heading into the game is the tension on Tyneside with a fresh set of protests against owner Mike Ashley, set to be voiced by the St James' faithful.
The previous meetings between the two clubs last season saw Brighton win 1-0 at The Amex, thanks to a goal from Tomer Hemed and a stalemate at St James Park in December.
The worrying thing is that Newcastle have only scored six goals this season and conceded over double the amount of goals they have scored.
Newcastle are yet to win a game this season having drawn two and lost six of their opening eight games of this season.


However, The Seagulls have faced Liverpool, Watford and Manchester City in three of those away games, who have all started the season well.
Whereas, The Seagulls sit in 13th place and five points clear of the relegation zone despite having only picked up one point from their first four away games this season.
Both Newcastle and Brighton have enjoyed differing starts to the season, with the home side Newcastle 19th and only not bottom of the Premier League due to the goal difference.
Brighton return to Premier League, 15 days since their victory over West Ham United in the Premier League.
Brighton return to Premier League action, 15 days after they beat West Ham United at The Amex 1-0.
