Leeds are hoping to get back to winning ways when they welcome Newcastle to Elland Road in the Premier League on Wednesday. 

Marcelo Bielsa’s side have lost their last two top flight fixtures, first at Chelsea before a 2-1 loss against West Ham, and are currently six points clear of the relegation zone in 14th. 

Bielsa has promised not to name his starting line-up in advance of tonight’s fixture, claiming it caused a distraction prior to his side’s defeat last weekend, but a resurgent Newcastle side are unlikely to throw up any surprises. 

Despite the coronavirus outbreak at their training ground, Steve Bruce’s side have battled to back-to-back victories against Crystal Palace and West Brom, seeing the Magpies rise into 12th, three points clear of their opponents.

Leeds remain favourites to take the three points, though, and will be relying on Patrick Bamford’s cutting edge after such a spectacular start to the season, in which the striker has already scored eight goals.
