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.

We will bring you all the action and updates from today’s game in the live blog below:

A frustrating day for Newcastle brings an end to their calendar year, as Leeds hold out for a point from an increasingly fractious encounter. Eight yellow cards were issued as the Magpies scrapped it out in midfield with their dogged opponents, but cool heads were absent in the final third when several chances presented themselves. There’s no seventh straight Premier League win for the top-four contenders, but they have still lost only twice at home throughout the whole of 2022.
