Team News

Leeds
Newcastle
  • Marcelo Bielsa remains without four players for the welcome of Newcastle, with Gaetano Berardi, Robin Koch, Diego Llorente and Adam Forshaw ruled out.
  • The Leeds boss will likely look to rotate, with Helder Costa possibly coming into the XI for Raphinha. Jason Shakleton and Tyler Roberts came off the bench against West Ham on Friday night and are also options for Bielsa.
  • Steve Bruce has confirmed Jamaal Lascelles, Allan Saint-Maximin, Javier Manquillo and Fabian Schar are among those still missing for Newcastle.
  • Isaac Hayden had to fill in at centre-back at the weekend but having only just recovered from COVID-19 he will need assessing ahead of this one.
  • Expect Federico Fernandez to replace Hayden in the side here, as the defender is now available after testing negative for COVID-19.
  • Ryan Fraser's recovery from a hamstring injury was disrupted by the closure of Newcastle's training ground earlier this month but he will be in the squad in midweek.
  • Jacob Murphy could start at right-back at Elland Road, while Dwight Gayle, who came off the bench to score the winner against West Brom, will hope to make his first start of the season.

Prediction

  • Leeds came undone late one against West Ham on Friday night, conceding an 80th-minute Angelo Ogbonna header to make it one win in their last six league outings. Home form has been an issue for Leeds this season having failed to win their last five at Elland Road.
  • Newcastle, meanwhile, bagged a late winner against West Brom on Saturday to make it back-to-back league wins after their meeting with Aston Villa was postponed due to a COVID-19 outbreak in the squad. The Magpies are unbeaten in their last five league visits to Elland Road, including a 2-0 win in Yorkshire back in 2016.
  • Newcastle have lost just the once on the road this season and their solid away form may continue here, though Leeds should have enough to land a point in Wednesday's clash.

  • I'm a Newcastle supporter. I'm glad Leeds won. Bielsa is a proper, ambitious, talented manager. Steve Bruce is a mediocre, weak, satisfied nobody. Mike Ashley needs to leave. This is getting ridiculous. I want to see my club relegated; it's a proper indication of the utter pointlesness of this Arsenal supporter's cluelesness. Get rid of Ashley. Even worse than Ashley are the weak, consumerist fools who keep on going to St. James' to watch this aimless group of mercenaries (bar Shelvey, the only decent player we have). In the 80s we boycotted the club until a decent owner (John Hall) took the club to the next level. Back in the 80s men had balls. Now they have manginas. NUFC is a club for pussies.

  • The time to win for LU.

  • 2-1 Leeds win

  • 0-1 Wilson

  • 2-1

  • 3-1
