Newcastle vs Leeds: Predictions
Once again Newcastle find themselves in a torrid run of form, with displeasure surrounding the management both at team level and in the board room. On the pitch, results just have not been coming, with the Mapgies now 10 games without a win across all competitions, a run which included an EFL Cup exit to Championship side Brentford.
Their form has left Newcastle in 16th and, despite a seven-point gap, back in the relegation battle. Steve Bruce’s side are currently living on their better start to the season than those around them, but Newcastle need something to change or they will be caught by Fulham.
Leeds are also in bad form, though their run of winless games is a lot shorter than Newcastle’s. Since closing 2020 with a 5-0 win over West Brom, Leeds have lost their last three games across all competitions without scoring. This has led to questions being asked already on Marcelo Bielsa’s tactics and the tiredness it is known to cause, though some of the comments are slightly tongue-in-cheek.
But there is no denying The Whites are in a slump conceding seven goals in their past three games including three against League Two side Crawley Town, being knocked out of the FA Cup at the third round. However, Leeds are still fairly comfortable in 11th, four points clear of their hosts this week with a game in hand.

Newcastle vs Leeds: Match Stats
Leeds may not be in good goalscoring form going into this game, but Newcastle have been worse at the attacking end of the pitch. Bruce’s side have failed to score in their past four games across all competitions including a 1-0 defeat to winless Sheffield United in the league. And their problems have gone further than that, with Newcastle only scoring in one of their past eight games.
Despite the last meeting between these two sides bringing goals, Newcastle have been poor in front of goal, and their woes often carry over to their opponents. Of their 19 Premier League games so far, 11 have seen under 2.5 goals scored, including one 0-0.
16 December 2020 – Leeds 5-2 Newcastle – Premier League
14 April 2017 – Newcastle 1-1 Leeds – Championship
20 November 2016 – Leeds 0-2 Newcastle – Championship
25 September 2013 – Newcastle 2-0 Leeds – League Cup
7 January 2004 – Newcastle 1-0 Leeds – Premier League
Leeds’ 5-2 win over Newcastle just before Christmas was an excellent game, which also brought a winless run to an end. Prior to the victory, Leeds had gone six games without victory over Newcastle, though games had been few and far between since the Whites were relegated from the Premier League in 2004.
