Two of the Premier League’s winless teams will look to secure their first victories of the season as Leeds travel to meet Newcastle.

Each was well-beaten last time out by two of the Premier League’s ostensible title contenders, with Newcastle conceding four to a Cristiano Ronaldo inspired Manchester United.

Leeds, meanwhile, were lucky not to concede more than three against Liverpool and saw Pascal Struijk dismissed after a challenge on Harvey Elliott.

Both sides find themselves with major selection decisions and could each deploy a back five at St James’ Park on Friday evening.
