Newcastle United travel to Leeds United for the first time in 17 years in the Premier League tonight.

Nearly 17 years have passed since this duo met in the Premier League and games against the Whites have proven a very happy hunting ground for United over the years as Steve Bruce and his side look to make it three Premier League wins on the bounce.

Steve Bruce - and fans - react to the Leeds loss

And that’s that - another late capitulation for NUFC

It wasn’t game over - 5-2. What a goal Jack Harrison!

Shocker from Sean Longstaff - gifts the ball away and Leeds net

2-1 Leeds - and it was some goal...

Right decision... probably!
