Newcastle United v Leeds United Match Predictions & Trends

Will the goals continue to flood in on Tyneside?

Both Newcastle United and Leeds United will bid to halt their runs of disappointing early Premier League form at St. James’ Park on Friday. Leeds United suffered a 3-0 defeat against Liverpool at Elland Road in their last Premier League match, extending their winless start to the season to four, leaving the visitors in 17th spot on two points through four matches. Newcastle United are in 19th place with one point after four matches. Newcastle were defeated 4-1 in their last Premier League match at Old Trafford against Manchester United, also extending their winless season start to four matches.

When the two sides last met in Premier League action, Leeds emerged victorious 2-1 at St. James’ Park last season. Raphinha opened the scoring for the Whites in the 17th minute. Jack Harrison also found the net. Miguel Almirón scored the lone goal for the Magpies in the 57th minute.

Leeds have got the better of Newcastle of late, unbeaten in their last three Premier League matches. Newcastle are looking for their first league win in games between the two teams since November 2016. The Whites have outscored the Magpies 8-4 during their unbeaten streak.
