This (see below) is how the Premier League form table looks ahead of the latest round of fixtures, which includes Newcastle United taking on Leeds United.

The two clubs meeting at Elland Road, 3pm Saturday afternoon (22 January).

Eddie Howe looking to bounce back from that 88th minute Watford equaliser. when yet again individual players made really poor mistakes to deny Newcastle United a win, this time Miguel Almiron and Jamaal Lascelles the pair who shouldered the blame for some really poor defending.

Here is the Premier League form table which covers the past six matches for all teams:

The last six results for Leeds with latest one listed first:

West Ham 2 Leeds 3

Leeds 3 Burnley 1

Leeds 1 Arsenal 4

Man City 7 Leeds 0

Newcastle’s last six results also listed with the latest result first:

Newcastle 1 Watford 1

Newcastle 1 Man Utd 1

Newcastle 0 Man City 4

Liverpool 3 Newcastle 1

Leicester 4 Newcastle 0

Newcastle 1 Burnley 0

This is how the Premier League table currently looks ahead of this weekend’s matches:

Premier League Table 2021/22

When analysing the info above, the Premier League form table makes for interesting reading.

Leeds lifting themselves to 14th in the form table and 15th in the overall PL table, with those two wins against Burnley and West Ham. Two wins that followed only one point from the previous four PL games AND only three wins in their opening 18 PL matches of the season.

Newcastle United only one place behind Leeds United in the Premier League form table BUT those two wins helping the Yorkshire club stretch four places and ten points ahead of NUFC.

Whilst Leeds have finally found a way to win matches again, the thread of hope for Newcastle on Saturday is that even when winning, Bielsa’s team continue to concede goals. These last six games alone seeing 19 conceded.

Whether Newcastle can take advantage of that defensive weakness remains to be seen.

This weekend could see Newcastle United facing a double whammy of falling to the bottom of both the Premier League table AND the Premier League form table.

If Watford win tonight (Friday) at home to Norwich (we could really do with this one being a draw I think!) and Newcastle lose at Leeds, then NUFC would be guaranteed to be bottom of the Premier League form table.

Whilst if Newcastle lose at Elland Road and Burnley avoid defeat at Arsenal, NUFC fall to the bottom of the Premier League table.

With a 17 days gap between this match at Leeds and then playing at home to Everton, Newcastle United could really do with an uplifting performance AND especially result, at Elland Road on Saturday.

Here’s hoping.
