Newcastle vs Leeds | EPL 22-23 | Matchday 18
The Premier League has given us many surprises so far this season. We are seeing clubs at the top of the table that are not usually at the top, in the middle of the table several of the big clubs that are always fighting for the best positions and at the end of the table, playing the relegation combined that were already accustomed to the first division. This is what soccer is all about, goals, victories and comebacks, and not everything is said until after 90 minutes. There is a lot of competition ahead and in that, Newcastle vs Leeds will see eye to eye.
Newcastle vs Leeds 2022 to be played at St. James' Park
Newcastle was set to break into the top positions.
Newcastle managed to have a fairly regular performance in their first games of the season, but they did not figure or stand out among the top places. It is one of those clubs that we see them slowly creeping up without their rivals noticing until they have already overtaken them or are on top of them. Up to the 12 games played, they had managed to achieve 5 wins, 6 draws and only one defeat. 4 of these victories had been in the 5 matches to date.
One of the most notable victories so far was against Tottenham, a match that ended 1-2 in favor of the Magpies. Callum Wilson and Miguel Almirón were in charge of giving the victory to this club, while for Spurs their star player Harry Kane scored.
In the Newcastle vs Leeds game, the Magpies know they have a golden opportunity to take the 3 points and contribute to their aim of fighting for the top places.
Leeds are regretfully seeing how the Premier League could be slipping away from them.
Leeds have not been so lucky, this is their third consecutive season in the Premier League, they have managed to survive the setbacks. But it seems that this season is looking to leave them on the outside, it is a club that does not give up in every game they have fought until the end to add to their favor and move away from relegation. However, the task is getting too big for them, after 11 games played, more than half of them, 6 of them, are defeats.
To date, they have only managed to collect 9 points, which correspond to only 2 wins and 3 draws. A tough match awaits them with Newcastle vs Leeds which, if they do not attend with a cool head, will serve to sink them further.
