Newcastle United vs. Leeds United Match Analysis and Prediction

Two out-of-form teams go head to head this week in the Premier League as Newcastle welcomes Leeds United at St. James Park. The match schedules for Tuesday with kickoff at 9 pm.

Newcastle lost five games in a row in all competitions and remain winless in ten competitions. On the other hand, have lost three without scoring a goal.

Even after their disastrous run of form, Steve Bruce will remain in the job with owner Mike Ashley waiting for a club takeover. The main area of concern for Newcastle fans will be their exit from both cups over the recent weeks. Furthermore, the side keeps sliding down the table and could face a relegation battle.

Saturday’s 2-0 loss to Aston Villa marked the fourth consecutive game in which the Magpies failed to score. The last three losses came in the league. Bruce’s men are currently seven points from the drop zone. Furthermore, an improving Fulham side has a game in hand to make up for the deficit.

The situation at Leeds is not worse when it comes to the goal-scoring output. However, creativity has gone down since the turn of the New Year. Leeds went down 3-0 to Tottenham and Crawley Town in Premier League and FA Cup. They only managed seven shots to Brighton, marking the fourth-lowest in a game under Marco Bielsa.

Steve Bruce heads into the clash without services from Paul Dummett and Federico Fernandez. Also, fellow defender Ciaran Clark remains a fitness doubt. A major boost for Steve Bruce is the return of Saint-Maximin after two months of no-action due to coronavirus.
