Newcastle United Vs Leeds United Prediction, Odds And Team News

Newcastle United will welcome a rowdy Geordie crowd back to St James’ Park when they host Leeds United on Friday evening.

With just one point against newly-promoted side Norwich City, the Magpies sit 19th in the table and are yet to taste victory so far this season.

Meanwhile, the Whites are also winless, having picked up just two points from their first four games and are in 17th place.

Interestingly, Newcastle boss Steve Bruce has brushed off rumours questioning his position as head coach, however, another defeat should increase the pressure already on his shoulders.


Ahead of the game, our tipster Robert Mann takes a look at some of best bets from Newcastle vs Leeds United to get your teeth stuck into it.

Newcastle United vs Leeds United betting tips & predictions

Newcastle United are 2/1 to win, with Leeds United priced at 6/5 to come away with the victory. A draw is priced at 11/4.

Prediction: 1-2 (15/2)

Match Result: Leeds United (6/5)

Bruce’s men are in desperate need of a confidence-boosting win, however, with doubts over the fitness of star striker Callum Wilson, it may be unlikely to come against Friday’s visitors.

Marcelo Bielsa’s side also completed the double over Newcastle last season, winning 5-2 at Elland Road and 2-1 at St James’ Park, and we're backing them to come away with all three points again.

Anytime Goalscorer: Jamaal Lascelles (14/1)

Advert

Leeds had the worst defensive record from set-pieces last season, conceding 15 times - and they have endured the same struggles again this term.

One asset the Magpies do have is height and Jamaal Lascelles - standing at 6ft 2in - will be relishing the chance of taking on a fragile opposition defence.

Newcastle United team news

Newcastle will again be without the services of Martin Dubravka, Jonjo Shelvey and Elliott Anderson on Friday through injury, while Wilson will also miss out due to a thigh problem.

Joe Willock will need to be assessed after picking up a knock at Old Trafford, while the same can also be said for Javier Manquillo and Ciaran Clark.


Leeds United team news

Defensive stalwart Robin Koch is again unavailable due to a groin problem, while Diego Llorente will miss out with the muscular issue that forced him to leave the field against Liverpool.

Pascal Struijk is also suspended after receiving a straight red card for a challenge on Liverpool's Harvey Elliott, meaning that Bielsa has a big decision to make in the middle of his defence.
