Leeds United will be looking to escape the Premier League relegation zone when they face Newcastle United in round 36. The Whites are having a forgettable season, but a win over Newcastle will keep their survival hopes alive. Rodrigo is pushing for a starting spot after scoring as a substitute in a 2-1 loss to Manchester City, while Cooper, Dallas, Sinisterra, and Dallas are all still out.
The Magpies, on the other hand, are desperate to keep their place in the Champions League. Eddie Howe’s team failed to impress in a 2-0 loss to Arsenal, but given Leeds’ shaky defense, we predict the visitors will take all three points on Saturday. Both Miguel Almiron and Allan Saint-Maximin are pushing for a start, while Lascelles and Krafth are still out. Sean Longstaff is a major question mark.
Leeds United and Newcastle United will face off in the Premier League on 13th May 2023 at the St James’ Park.
