Newcastle vs Leeds Prediction & Match Preview

Newcastle vs Leeds United
England – Premier League
Date: Tuesday, 26 January 2021
Kick-off at 18:00 UK/ 19:00 CET
Venue: St. James’ Park.

Out-of-sorts Newcastle United will be aiming to put an end to their three-game losing run in the Premier League when they take on Leeds United on Matchday 20. 

The Magpies failed to find the net in the previous four games in all competitions, and, no doubt, they are eager to put an end to the negative trend. 

Federico Fernadnez remains in the recovery room, while fellow defender Ciaran Clark should recover in time to face the Whites.

Leeds United aim to make amends for a 1-0 loss to Brighton. The Whites have been struggling in front of goal of late as well, but they should take advantage of Newcastle United’s form in 2021. 

Even though Koch, Forshaw, and Grot are out of contention with injuries, we are tempted to put our money on Marcelo Bielsa’s troops this time out.

Team News:

Newcastle will be without Paul Dummett and Federico Fernandez for this match, while fellow defender Ciaran Clark is also a fitness doubt.

However, Bruce has Allan Saint-Maximin back involved after the French winger made his first appearance in two months as a second-half substitute against Villa.

Scoring goals may be an issue for Newcastle, but Callum Wilson - who has gone six full games without finding the net - seems likely to lead the line once again.

As for Leeds, Gaetano Berardi, Adam Forshaw, Robin Koch and Illan Meslier are all expected to miss out on this midweek trip to St James' Park.

Kalvin Phillips is back available after serving a ban, though, and is expected to take over from Pascal Struijk in holding midfield.

Striker Patrick Bamford scored seven goals from his first 29 shots in the league this season, but he has since netted three times from his last 36 attempts.

Newcastle United possible starting lineup:
Darlow; Yedlin, Clark, Lascelles, Schar, Lewis; Almiron, Shelvey, Hayden, Saint-Maximin; Wilson

Leeds United possible starting lineup:
Casilla; Dallas, Ayling, Cooper, Alioski; Raphinha, Rodrigo, Phillips, Klich, Harrison; Bamford
