Newcastle Boss Under Pressure Ahead of Meeting with Leeds

We have a full selection of fixtures to look forward to in the English Premier League this week and on Tuesday night Newcastle United meet Leeds United at St. James' Park. The hosts begin the week in 16th place on 19 points while the visitors are in 12th place on 23 points.

Newcastle United come into the match having suffered a 2-0 defeat at Aston Villa on Saturday night. Aston Villa were in complete control of the game throughout the 90 minutes and it was another disappointing performance from The Magpies.

That result means Newcastle United have lost each of their last 5 games in all competitions and have failed to win any of their 10 most recent matches.

You must go back to the 12th of December to find the last time Newcastle United recorded a victory and they defeated West Bromwich Albion 2-1 at home. Since then, Newcastle United have picked up just 2 points from a possible 12 available in the Premier League, including a 5-2 defeat at Leeds United.

Trends show Newcastle United are on a run of 4 straight defeats in the Premier League and they have failed to score a single goal in each of their last 4 matches in all competitions. However, they have not always been easy to beat at home and Newcastle United are undefeated in 3 of their last 4 home Premier League games.

Much like their opponents, Leeds United have been on a poor run of form which has seen them lose each of their last 3 matches in all competitions. They lost 3-0 away against Tottenham Hotspur in the Premier League before being dumped out of the FA Cup by Crawley Town, a match which also ended in a 3-0 scoreline.

Leeds United most recent game came at home in the Premier League against Brighton and Hove Albion which ended in a 1-0 defeat and a disappointing performance.

Away form in the Premier League shows Leeds United have lost 3 of their 4 most recent away games in the competition. The defeats came at Chelsea, Manchester United, and Tottenham Hotspur but there was a convincing 5-0 win over West Bromwich Albion.

Trends show that Leeds United's last 5 away games in all competitions have been high-scoring, with over 2.5 goals scored.

Team news and Newcastle United will be without the injured duo of Paul Dummett and Federico Fernandez. There are doubts over the fitness of Ciaran Clark but Allan Saint-Maximin and Ryan Fraser could come into the starting XI.

Leeds United travel without the injured Robin Koch, Adam Forshaw, and Gaetano Berardi. Illan Meslier could return in goal for the visitors.

Both teams need a victory and have little option but to go for the win, which could lead to over 2.5 goals being scored in this match. It is now or never for Steve Bruce and Newcastle United could come out on top to take maximum points.
