Better stuff from Newcastle, they give it a try and Hayden wins a corner Leeds clears his lines from the set piece and the counterattack, they have a lot of men up front and the move ends with Harrison’s cross going long and the whistle for the break goes

Murphy, turning and walking away from the gate in Leeds, has a shot from out of range It goes far but at least it was positive from the hosts

Free kick to Leeds, 40 yards away, right. It comes in and Bamford looks at it far. On the replay it is clear that this was a better chance than it originally looked

Rodrigo is up first when he cuts in and saves his shot, then Raphinha comes to the sideline and doesn’t pull the ball back to shoot Bamford and hits the post

Great throughball with the outside of his right foot by Schar for Murphy and a corner for Newcastle. From the resulting set piece, Meslier almost drops it

Better in the final minutes for Newcastle, they’re a little more up front, Fraser sees the ball more and he hits a shot over the bar

3 – Raphinha becomes the first Leeds United player to score each of his first three Premier League goals for the club since Michael Bridges in August 1999 Adventurer BildTwittercom / Ur9hRlzSdJ

It’s now been six hours since Newcastle’s last goal – Andy Carroll v Leicester on Jan. January

Fraser kicks in a hopeful ball from the left that dodges everyone, and Murphy almost gets an important note on the back post

Meanwhile, Meslier is down. This was a very stop-start in the first 45 minutes. The Leeds goalkeeper is back in action and takes the goal kick after a long delay

The answer is no – Shelvey runs from 30 yards and shoots it in the stands, pretty mindlessly

Leeds checks – every time they get the ball they have so much more options than Newcastle. They look sharper, hunting backpacks – overall the better side

Dallas is down – they want him to stay, he was one of their stars this season

Newcastle pass the ball well at the moment but can’t create what a chance passable from a distance Still showing signs of improvement

Blistering counterattack ð ???? ¥ Leeds’ big summer signings deliver the goods as Rodrigo finds Raphinha to win the standings at the St James’ Park to open! That’s a beautiful finish ð ?????? Image Twittercom / CcdL5d4JW2

It has been all too easy for Leeds so far – they were the better team and are worth the early advantage

Almiron wins a corner ahead of Ayling for Newcastle – chance to create a chance Shelvey delivers a good ball that Lascelles heads just overhead. Cooper did just enough to scare the Newcastle man away

Raphinha scores Murphy’s mistake when he loses the ball to a throw-in. Leeds drop out quickly while Bamford moves into the final third He goes right to Rodrigo, who cuts his left hand to the left Head up, he points the ball at Raphinha, who makes a touch before shooting from the penalty area into the corner. Easy and clinical from the visitors

The hosts are struggling to tie the passes together at the moment – once pushed up they seem to panic on Leeds on the forefoot

For obvious reasons – injuries and coaches on the field when they couldn’t keep up – this has so far been a stop-start game

Great one-touch game from Leeds on the right Bamford crosses the back post and Harrison hits for the first time and cuts his volley well, far. Good chance and had time to take first touch

Newcastle heads off the free kick and the visitors throw Llorente is now down and it looks like he has his hamstring done – he’s gone and Struijk is on

Shelvey picks up the ball from 35 yards, digs and goes far. It was there to be hit and, if we are positive, shows the attack intent that Newcastle needs and that was missing

Bad sign for Newcastle as Schar falls awkwardly and holds his shoulder – he was out with a shoulder injury earlier this season.The coach is on and the Swiss is on for the time being

We are in the cathedral of football, St. James’ Park, en route Both teams need a win so let’s hope for an enjoyable game

Both teams have one goal in front of them this year – fingers crossed that will improve in the next 90 minutes

It’s clear they missed Phillips against Brighton, and maybe the current run of four losses in six in all competitions since beating them 5-2 tonight in early December is just a reality check

For Luke Edwards of Telegraph Sport, the result is that he may be too stubborn and not cute enough

1975/76 – Leeds beat Newcastle 5-2 in the second leg in December and last played a league double against the Magpies under Jimmy Armfield in the 1975/76 season This was also the last time they won back -back league games against Magpies Motivation #NEWLEE BildTwittercom / XbdHli9FEd

Leeds XI: Meslier, Ayling, Cooper, Llorente, Alioski, Phillips, Raphinha, Dallas, Rodrigo, Harrison, Bamford; Subs: Poveda-Ocampo, Roberts, Casilla, Helder Costa, Hernandez, Struijk, Davis, Klich, Shackleton

After losing 1-0 to Leeds, threatened with relegation, 10 days ago, Marcelo Bielsa made three changes. Illan Meslier is fit again, Kalvin Phillips is back from suspension and Diego Llorente is in midfield for Mateusz Klich last change is a bit of a shock as the Pole announced all but two games for Leeds during the Argentine reign

Newcastle XI: Darlow, Murphy, Hayden, Lascelles, Schar, Lewis, Almiron, Shelvey, Hendrick, Fraser, Wilson; Subs: Dubravka, Matthew Longstaff, Carroll, Joelinton, Saint-Maximin, Ritchie, Gayle, Krafth, Manquillo

There are two changes following Saturday’s 2-0 loss at Aston Villa: Andy Carroll starts on the bench, Ryan Fraser joins Javier Manquillo is the other player to be missed with Jacob Murphy replacing the Spaniard Allan Saint-Maximin, so often the bright spark of the team, is still building up his fitness after recovering from the corona virus and is on the bench

When it comes to staying in the Premier League, wonder why Newcastle are bothering (when you ignore all of the money involved )

Every season seems to be a great challenge for the club and its fans. An endless siege of stress, pain and introspection from which it must be impossible to have any joy or happiness at all

This campaign fell into the familiar routine of the fans ???? The initial hope is replaced with dismay and anger. Stage with supporters on social media calling for current coach Steve Bruce to be fired

If they fail to score tonight, it will be the first time since March 1981 that Newcastle have been out of the net in five consecutive games, plus they have been without a win in eight league games, draw twice and lose six

Then there’s the BIG problem – the fact that it’s just so boring to see them. If Bruce can get anything positive out of this run, it is that in St James no fans are allowed Park, as you suspect, they would have made sure that the whole country, not just the northeast, they could express their disapproval of the coach

Newcastle fans want to see bold stuff, be entertained, and see that their beloved side is positive and if to lose, they lose with their heads held high In truth, they haven’t had a side like that since Sir Bobby Robson’s boss at the turn of the century was and before him Kevin Keegan in the dugout

I suppose the situation in Newcastle is similar for many fans across the country If the only goal is to stay in the Premier League and you’re not being entertained, what is it about?

Today’s game, however, offers the opportunity to forget the current, seemingly multi-year emergency and to score some much-needed points against a team from Leeds, even in a difficult situation

He may not bring many points and football to the table, but Bruce has a great record against tonight’s opponents The Newcastle manager has never lost a home game to Leeds as manager, won five and drawn twice

During these troubled times, it’s probably best to grab a little comfort for fear that the next crisis is never far away
