Newcastle United v Leeds United: When is it? What channel is it on? What is the latest team news?

Newcastle United face Leeds United this week with both sides looking for their first Premier League wins of the season.

Newcastle suffered a 4-1 defeat to Manchester United last-time out, whilst their opponents Leeds United were beaten 3-0 by Liverpool.

Marcelo Bielsa’s side did the double over Newcastle last season and Steve Bruce will hope to be able to exact some revenge and silence any crowd chants of “we want Brucie out” that were heard once again at Old Trafford on Saturday.
