Eddie Howe’s side suffered late disappointment against Watford last weekend as they saw three points slip away, courtesy of a late equaliser from Joao Pedro.

Marcelo Bielsa’s side enjoyed completely different fortunes on the other hand, as they dealt West Ham’s European chances a blow with a hugely impressive 3-2 victory at the London Stadium, avenging their FA Cup defeat a week previous.

Newcastle have failed to beat Leeds in their last four matches, earning two draws but suffering two defeats in that time.
