Tip Reasoning

  • Both teams have scored in six of these teams’ combined eight Premier League games this season.
  • Newcastle have seen goals at both ends in 13 of their last 16 home league games.
  • Newcastle and Leeds have both played out 2-2 draws already this season.

Pressure builds on winless Newcastle

Newcastle returned from the international break to play a supporting role in the Cristiano Ronaldo show last weekend as they were hammered at Old Trafford and after four games of the new season the pressure is already mounting on unpopular manager Steve Bruce.

The Magpies are yet to win a Premier League game this season and, with one draw and three defeats to their name, find themselves just one point off the bottom of the table and harbouring the worst defensive record in the league.

Disappointing start for Bielsa’s Leeds

The home fans may be able to muster just a tiny bit of hope, though, as the face a Leeds side that have also suffered a disappointing start to the campaign.

Marcelo Bielsa’s side – like Newcastle – find themselves without a win after four top-flight matches and along with Norwich they have the joint second-worst defensive record in the Premier League. Sitting two positions and one point above their hosts, there is certainly no guarantee that the visitors can get a result at St James’ Park.

Expect goals at St James’ Park

What we can expect from these sides is plenty of goals, mainly thanks to their seemingly incapable back lines. They have conceded 23 goals between them this term and both Newcastle and Leeds are yet to keep a clean sheet, with both teams scoring in six of their eight combined matches.

Newcastle have shipped two or more goals in all four of their games and, with both sides playing out high-scoring 2-2 draws already this season, a bet of both teams to score alongside a 2-2 correct score prediction is appealing.

Newcastle predicted lineup: Woodman; Manquillo, Fernandez, Lascelles, Schar; Almiron, Willock, Hayden, Saint-Maximin; Wilson

Leeds predicted lineup: Meslier; Dallas, Ayling, Cooper, Firpo; Raphinha, Rodrigo, Phillips, Klich, Harrison; Bamford
