Newcastle United will lock horns with Leeds United at Elland Road on Saturday afternoon as they try to grind out a good result on their travels. The Magpies were held to a frustrating 1-1 draw by Watford last weekend, so they will be eager to collect all three points this time around.

Eddie Howe will set his team up in a 4-5-1 formation and could keep changes to a minimum for this game. Chris Wood will once again lead the line for Newcastle on his own up top.

Martin Dubravka will retain his place in goal for the Magpies after conceding a goal in his last league appearance. Jamaal Lascelles will resume his partnership with Fabian Schar at the heart of Howe’s defence as they focus on maintaining a solid shape defensively throughout the 90 minutes.

Kieran Trippier will be eager to impress at right-back while Paul Dummett fills in on the other side as the left-back. Both of them will be given the license to express themselves in the Leeds half so that they can offer enough support to the front players.

Emil Krafth and Matt Ritchie will offer cover for the full-back positions on the Newcastle bench.

Joelinton, Jonjo Shelvey and Sean Longstaff will make up Howe’s midfield as they look to make life difficult for the home team at the centre of the park.

Allan Saint-Maximin would try to put his pace to good use as the left-sided winger while Ryan Fraser hopes to put in a tireless display on the right flank. Both Newcastle wide players would have to find ways to stretch the Leeds defence and deliver some decent crosses to Chris Wood up top.

Miguel Almiron will be available for selection on the bench as he waits for his chance to shine in the final quarter of the game if needed.


The Magpies’ big-money January acquisition, Chris Wood will once again act as the focal point of Howe’s attack. The New Zealand international will have to carry most of the goal-scoring workload for the Tyneside giants in the final third.
