Leeds v Newcastle team news

Leeds: Gaetano Berardi, Robin Koch, Diego Llorente and Adam Forshaw remain sidelined for Leeds.

The only changes will come if Bielsa wants to rest and rotate his main men. Patrick Bamford has been a key figure up top all season, but he may be just as in need of a rest as his teammates. Predicting the XI is anyone's guess, right now.

Newcastle: Jamaal Lascelles, Allan Saint-Maximin and Ryan Fraser are not definitively ruled out of this one, but it would be a surprise to see more than one of them starting this week.

Steve Bruce must manage his squad wisely through such a busy period and won't want to rush star players back to the field if they're not absolutely ready.

Our prediction: Leeds v Newcastle

Neither side has been particularly cut-throat in the Premier League this season.

This is a clash between two sides who will probably end the season cosied up to each other in mid-table, but Bielsa will be targeting a victory here.

The question remains over his Leeds team's ability to cope with such a demanding style and schedule. They will seize the initiative here, but whether they have the legs to hold a lead remains to be seen.

Our prediction: Leeds 1-1 Newcastle
