The Leeds United vs Newcastle United live stream could be an important game for the Premier League relegation picture. While Leeds have managed to pull away from the drop zone after back-to-back victories, Newcastle are in serious trouble after a string of poor performances.

The reports of Leeds’ demise have been greatly exaggerated. While the team have certainly not been able to replicate the form they enjoyed last season, recent victories against Burnley and Champions League-chasing West Ham have showcased the side at their energetic best.

The less positive news is that Patrick Bamford is confirmed to miss this game. The forward had been tipped to return this weekend, but a fresh injury setback means that won’t be the case. Adding to this, Leeds are still without Kalvin Phillips, Liam Cooper, Charlie Cresswell and Jamie Shackleton. Despite these absentees, Leeds will still feel confident they have enough to put Newcastle to the sword at Elland Road. 

There’s very little reason to think the Magpies will be able to claim anything from this game. The North-Eastern side have managed just a single win all season and appear to be destined for the second tier based on form. Adding to their woes, last weekend Newcastle were hit with a sucker punch by a late Watford equalizer in a crucial fixture. This latest disappointing result has further soured the mood on Tyneside. 

New signings Kieran Trippier and Chris Wood are still bedding in, but are expected to start here. Fans had hoped that the team’s leaky defense would be improved in the January transfer window, but that’s yet to happen. Newcastle have conceded 43 goals in just 20 games, a stat that will have surely have the Leeds faithful feeling confident of all three points. 

Here's how they line up:

Leeds United: Meslier, Ayling, Llorente, Struijk, Dallas, Koch, Raphinha, Klich, Rodrigo, Harrison, James.

Newcastle United: Dubravka, Trippier, Lascelles, Schar, Dummett, Willock, Shelvey, Joelinton, Fraser, Wood, Saint-Maximin.
