4 weeks ago

The Leeds team v Newcastle has just been confirmed.

Marcelo Bielsa’s side hoping to improve on their really poor start to the season.

Not quite as bad as Steve Bruce’s Newcastle who have one point, Leeds have two points from their opening four Premier League matches.

Leeds have had a tough set of fixtures, having played three of the current top four.

Marcelo Bielsa has seen his side lose 3-0 at home to Liverpool and 5-1 at Man Utd.

The two points coming from a 2-2 home draw at home to Everton and 1-1 away at Burnley.

However, whilst Newcastle exited the League Cup at the first attempt, Leeds have at least progress to round three via a 3-0 win over Crewe.

The confirmed Leeds team v Newcastle :

Meslier, Ayling, Firpo, Cooper, Dallas, Phillips, Klich, James, Raphinha, Rodrigo, Bamford

So two changes for Leeds after their home defeat to Liverpool.


Klich, James


Llorente, Harrison


Klaessen, Cresswell, Shackleton, Kenneh, McCarron, Summerville, McKinstry, Greenwood, Roberts

The confirmed Newcastle United team and subs are below :

Darlow, Manquillo, Hayden, Lascelles, Clark, Ritchie, Sean Longstaff, Almiron, Willock, Saint-Maximin, Joelinton


Gillespie, Schar, Lewis, Hendrick, Krafth, Fernandez, Murphy, Fraser, Gayle
