Is Newcastle vs Leeds on TV tonight? Kick-off time, channel and how to watch Premier League fixture



Two of the Premier League’s winless teams will look to secure their first victories of the season as Leeds travel to meet Newcastle.

Each was well-beaten last time out by two of the Premier League’s ostensible title contenders, with Newcastle conceding four to a Cristiano Ronaldo inspired Manchester United.

Leeds, meanwhile, were lucky not to concede more than three against Liverpool and saw Pascal Struijk dismissed after a challenge on Harvey Elliott.

Both sides find themselves with major selection decisions and could each deploy a back five at St James’ Park on Friday evening.

Team news

Arsenal loanee Joe Willock will be assessed by the Newcastle medical team before the game after suffering a knock during his side’s defeat to Manchester United.

Ciaran Clark and Javier Manquillo are also doubts, while Callum Wilson is expected to again miss out with a thigh injury. Karl Darlow could return in goal.

Leeds are confronting a central defensive crisis after Strujik’s red card was held up on appeal. Robin Koch and Diego Llorente will be absent for Friday’s clash, leaving Liam Cooper fighting a lone battle as Marcelo Bielsa’s sole specialist fit senior centre-half.

That may mean a reshuffle with Luke Ayling perhaps forming part of a back three, though Junior Firpo could also be used in a similar role.

Predicted line-ups

Newcastle: Darlow; Manquillo, Fernandez, Lascelles, Schar, Richie; Willock, Hayden; Almiron, Joelinton, Saint-Maximin

Leeds: Meslier; Dallas, Cresswell, Ayling, Cooper, Firpo; Phillips, Raphinha, Roberts, Harrison; Bamford

Odds

Newcastle – 2/1

Draw – 5/2

Leeds – 5/4

Prediction

Leeds’ lack of defensive resources and general intensity with and without the ball suggests this could be an open affair, but with both sides keen for early season points, a cagier clash could play out. Newcastle 1-1 Leeds
