Follow live coverage as Newcastle United face Leeds United in the Premier League today.

The Magpies are firmly fixed in the league’s top four as we head into 2023, following an impressive victory over Leicester last time out. Eddie Howe’s side have won eight in a row in all competitions, with the likes of Miguel Almiron and Joelinton enjoying the best form of their time in the northeast.

Leeds, by contrast, were beaten by Man City in their first top-flight back after the World Cup break and they sit 15th ahead of the match, just two points above the relegation zone and in need of a return to winning form.

Wasting a rare chance to test Pope in the Newcastle goal, Gelhardt thuds a 20-yard free-kick straight into the Magpies' defensive wall following a layoff from Aaronson.

Receiving the ball on the left corner of the box from Saint-Maximin's low pass, Joelinton leans back and lifts his effort over the crossbar, very much in the manner of Newcastle's previous attempts today.

After Saint-Maximin flashes a dangerous whipped ball across the face of Meslier's goal, Leeds immediately counter-attack. However, Rodrigo's attempted throughball to Klich, who is breaking into the box from the left, is overhit and rolls out of play.

To his immense frustration, Almiron is caught narrowly offside; bringing to an end Newcastle's latest attacking wave.

Newcastle have not only had 15 shots at goal in today's game so far, they have conceded only one on target at the other end. Yet, they cannot break the deadlock.

Newcastle United vs Leeds United

16:37 , admin

Despite Meslier's best efforts, he fails to keep a Struijk header in play following yet another Trippier free-kick and concedes a corner. The goalkeeper then claims the ball from the subsequent set-piece and hammers it upfield.

Newcastle United vs Leeds United

16:33 , admin

Played in by Almiron on the right side of the area, Longstaff skews another shot far over the crossbar, to the loud groans of the Newcastle fans.

Trippier's cross from high up on the right flank strays too close to Meslier, who gathers the ball at his near post. Then, Rodrigo breaks free at the other end and a similarly tame pull-back is claimed by Pope.

The referee issues some stern words of warning to Joelinton for raising his hands in a minor scuffle in midfield. The big Brazilian is perhaps fortunate to evade a booking there.

Newcastle United vs Leeds United

16:11 , admin

CLOSE! Right at the start of the half, Newcastle earn a corner on the right. When the cross drops to Schar at the far post, the centre-back engineers some space to shoot before lashing his shot just over the crossbar!

Newcastle have now stopped the opposition from scoring a first-half goal in 15 of their 17 Premier League matches, more than any other side in the top flight this season. In fact, Leeds have not even managed a single shot on target so far today.

Having had the better of an often scrappy first half, Newcastle will be disappointed not to have broken through and taken the lead on home soil - particularly against a Leeds side that struggles for clean sheets. Several set-pieces from the refined right foot of Trippier have opened the visitors up, but the Magpies are yet to take advantage. As a result, the game is finely poised at the interval, and it may be that changes of shape or personnel in the second half decide the destiny of the points.

Ignored by the referee, Schar claims for a penalty following a tangle of legs with Adams in the penalty area. Perhaps fortunately for the Leeds midfielder, play goes on.

Beaten for pace, Forshaw clatters Bruno Guimaraes in midfield, but the referee mysteriously waves play on. It has been a hard-fought encounter so far.

Newcastle United vs Leeds United

15:41 , admin

After Harrison skips clear of two challenges on the left side of the Newcastle area, his low shot lacks accuracy and flies wide of the target.

Newcastle United vs Leeds United

15:40 , admin

Adams sees off Willock deep inside his own half after Ayling is caught short, but from the resulting throw-in, Burn pumps an aimless high ball into the box for Meslier to claim.

Newcastle United vs Leeds United

15:37 , admin

Meslier makes a simple stop in his bottom-left corner, following a powerless prod at goal from Willock, who tries his luck from the brink of the box.

Newcastle United vs Leeds United

15:36 , admin

Newcastle's key creative force so far, Trippier tries to release Joelinton through the centre with a long ball, but the Brazilian is caught narrowly offside.

Newcastle United vs Leeds United

15:34 , admin

Cooper makes a crucial intervention to deny Almiron clear access on the right side of the Leeds area, as Newcastle continue to push for an opening goal. The hosts' chances have mainly come through set-pieces, but the general direction of play has swung their way too.

Newcastle United vs Leeds United

15:32 , admin

SAVE! An angled free-kick into the six-yard box from Trippier is met by the outstretched boot of Botman, but the Dutch defender is unable to steer it past Meslier, who gets down low to keep the ball out of the net!

Newcastle United vs Leeds United

15:30 , admin

MISS! Under pressure, Burn can't quite connect with a nod-down into the six-yard box, before Cooper fails to get the ball completely away. It drops to Almiron on the edge of the area, but the in-form forward skews his effort well wide of the left-hand post!

Willock pulls clear of Koch on the left, but Forshaw drops back just in time to help his defensive colleagues with a late block and forces the ball behind for a corner.

Scrambling into action, Burn somehow contrives a last-gasp block on a low shot by Aaronson which was surely set to test Pope in the Newcastle goal.

15:26 , admin

JUST WIDE! Schar steers a header wide of the left-hand post! After Struijk intervenes to concede a corner following Trippier's free-kick, the latter's outswinging cross is glanced off target by the Swiss defender!

A promising start to the game has broken down into a midfield battle at the moment, and the referee once again pulls up Gnonto for a foul; giving Trippier a chance to deliver a long ball into the Leeds box.

As the rain lashes down on Tyneside, several meaty challenges come in, with Trippier, Harrison and Gnonto all penalised by conceding free-kicks.

Newcastle United vs Leeds United

15:19 , admin

Newcastle have won each of their last six Premier League games - last having a longer such run in 1996 - but they haven't won their final league fixture in any of the last five calendar years since beating Nottingham Forest in the Championship.

Newcastle United vs Leeds United

15:16 , admin

At the second attempt, the lively Gnonto takes a shot at goal from outside the box, which is heavily deflected wide for Leeds' second corner. The set-piece ultimately comes to nothing, though, after Harrison's cross skims a couple of heads in the area and drifts wide.

Newcastle United vs Leeds United

15:14 , admin

Following a layoff from Wood, Joelinton slightly scuffs a shot from just inside the area, which trundles harmlessly towards Meslier in the Leeds goal.

Newcastle United vs Leeds United

15:13 , admin

Almiron is thwarted in his attempts to escape down the right flank, as the game zips end to end in the early stages; it's being played at quite a pace!

Released by Trippier down the right side of the area, Wood calmly takes the ball past an advancing Meslier but then badly mishits his shot from a tight angle - a good chance to open the scoring goes astray.

Newcastle United vs Leeds United

15:09 , admin

Aaronson earns a corner on the right-hand side, but a tangle between Struijk and Schar near the penalty spot then sees the Leeds defender penalised as he attempts to head Harrison's cross goalward.

Newcastle United vs Leeds United

15:08 , admin

After starting the game on the back foot, Leeds press forward and take their first shot at goal through Gnonto, but the young Italian leans back on his 20-yard strike and lifts it well over the crossbar.

Adams returns from suspension to start in the Leeds midfield, as Greenwood, Roca and Kristensen drop out of the first XI. Ayling and Harrison also come in, but Patrick Bamford remains absent due to a groin injury and Luis Sinisterra is still unavailable, so Rodrigo and Gnonto feature up front.

Though Wilson is fit enough to return after missing Newcastle's win over Leicester through illness, former Leeds striker Wood keeps his place up front today. Howe therefore names an unchanged XI. Meanwhile, Alexander Isak remains sidelined by a thigh problem and Jonjo Shelvey misses out due to a calf injury.
