Leeds United will entertain Newcastle United at Elland Road on Saturday afternoon as both teams look to fight tooth and nail in search of the win. The Whites managed to pick up an impressive 3-2 victory over West Ham United last weekend. However, the Magpies were held to a 1-1 draw by Watford in their last league outing which would make them even more hungry for the three points away at Yorkshire.

Leeds United vs Newcastle United: Talking Tactics

Marcelo Bielsa will probably set his side up in a 4-1-4-1 formation. The Leeds boss could instruct his players to win possession back high up the field and cause all sorts of problems for the Newcastle centre-backs using the pace of Raphinha and Jack Harrison.

Eddie Howe will opt for a 4-5-1 formation and could ask his men to soak in all the pressure and try to catch the Leeds defenders off-guard on the counter.

Newcastle United

Callum Wilson will definitely miss this game because of injury. Furthermore, Ciaran Clark is unlikely to recover in time for this clash.

Newcastle United Predicted XI

Dubravka, Trippier, Schar, Lascelles, Dummett, Fraser, Longstaff, Shelvey, Joelinton, Saint-Maximin, Wood

Key Men

Leeds United

Jack Harrison scored a hattrick versus the Hammers last weekend, so he will be eager to put in another productive performance this Saturday. Both Mateusz Klich and Rodrigo will have to engineer a few clear-cut chances for the Leeds frontmen in the final third if the Yorkshire side are to come out on top versus the Magpies.

Newcastle United

Martin Dubravka can expect a busy afternoon at Elland Road, so he will have to pull off some solid saves if the Magpies are to stand any chance in this game. All eyes will be on Kieran Trippier and Chris Wood as the Newcastle new signings try to impress the traveling supporters with their performance this weekend.
