Prediction: Leeds United vs Newcastle United

Prediction: Leeds United to win 1-0

Best Odds: 13/1

Bookmaker: Betfair

Leeds United and Newcastle United will face each other in the Premier League this coming weekend. The match between the West Yorkshire club and the Magpies will be held at Elland Road and is scheduled to kick off at 12:30pm UK time on Saturday.

Leeds United

Leeds United are one of the biggest clubs in England, but the West Yorkshire outfit are in real danger of getting relegated from the Premier League at the end of the season. Sam Allardyce is the third manager of the Whites now, and the former West Ham United and Newcastle United manager has got now just three matches to prevent the club from the dreaded drop to the Championship.

The Whites are second from bottom in the Premier League table at the moment with 30 points from 35 matches. Leeds are two points behind 17th-placed Everton and have a distinct possibility of going down to the Championship. Things are looking really bad for Leeds at the moment.

Leeds have lost 19 out of 35 Premier League matches so far this season. The Whites will head into the Premier League match against Newcastle United at Elland Road this coming weekend on the back of a 2-1 defeat to defending champions Manchester City away from home at Etihad Stadium in the league. It was Sam Allardyce’s first game in charge of the Whites.

Team News:

Leeds United interim-manager Sam Allardyce is unlikely to change the team that started against Manchester City this past weekend. Illan Meslier will start out of the team like he did against the defending Premier League champions. Joel Robles will start in goal. English striker Patrick Bamford will lead the line for the Whites.

Newcastle United

Newcastle United are having a wonderful season, and the fans will want to see their team get over the line. Things did not go well for the Magpies this past weekend, but Newcastle have recovered from defeats before, and the players will be confident of getting it over the line in the final weeks of the season.

Eddie Howe’s side are third in the Premier League table at the moment with 65 points from 34 matches. Newcastle are two points ahead of fourth-placed Manchester United, while Liverpool in fifth have picked up 62 points from 35 games. Newcastle have to be careful now to slip up in their final three Premier League games of the season.

Newcastle will head into the Premier League game against Leeds United away from home at Elland Road this coming weekend on the back of a 2-0 defeat to Arsenal at St. James’ Park in the league. It came after a 3-1 victory over Southampton at home in the Premier League and followed a 4-1 hammering of relegation-threatened Everton at Goodison Park in the league.

Team News:

Newcastle United head coach Eddie Howe will field a 4-3-3 formation. Callum Wilson will lead the line for the Magpies. Nick Pope will be in goal. Joelinton will keep his place in the Magpies’ field, while Sven Botman will be at the back.

Key Factors to Consider

  • Leeds United have lost 5 of their last 6 Premier League matches.
  • Leeds United have conceded 69 goals in 35 Premier League matches.
  • Newcastle United have lost 2 of their last 6 Premier League games.
  • Newcastle United have conceded 29 goals in 34 Premier League games.
  • Callum Wilson has scored 15 goals and given 4 assists in 27 Premier League matches for Newcastle United.


Leeds United may have lost against Manchester City this past weekend, but that the West Yorkshire club did not lose by a massive margin shows the impact that new interim manager Sam Allardyce has already made at the club. Newcastle United are doing well this season, but former Magpies manager Allardyce will be determined to pick up all three points for the Whites. Leeds will be tight at the back and are likely to end out a narrow 1-0 win.
