All eyes will be on the Championship clash this lunchtime as Leeds Utd take on Newcastle in what appears to be pulsating clash between two in form sides.
Bet365 have announced they have live feeds of a number of fixtures from England’s second tier, available to watch online this afternoon.
Two in-form fallen giants will come head to head on Sunday as Championship leaders Newcastle take on play-off hopefuls Leeds United at Elland Road in the early kickoff from the Championship.
The lunch time kick off has captured the imagination of many especially given their recent form and we could be set for a classic between two in form sides. Newcastle have won each of their last 7 league games to open up an 8 point gap on third place Huddersfield.
The Magpies are 11 points clear of Leeds in the standings and are 19 goals better off in the ‘for and against’ column, a measure of their season dominance.
Leeds meanwhile appear to be a settled unit for the first time in a number of season. The appointment of Garry Monk is proving to be a shrewd one with the former Swansea boss winning 50% of his league game so far.
After a shaky start the Lilywhites look to have turned a corner with Monk, and Leeds really do look like mounting a serious challenge on promotion this term. With Norwich on the slide there is a great chance to snap up a playoff place, and Leeds will definitely have one eye on that at the very least.
Leeds have won each of their last three games and have lost just two of their last 10 games. Last time out they showed they could mix it with the division’s big boys as they travelled to Carrow Road and beat Norwich 3-2, Ronaldo Vieira living to his superstar name with a 90th minute winner.
Monk has already lost out to his counter-part Rafa Benitez in losing out in the manager of the month award and he would hate to miss out on three points in this one, especially in front of his home fans.
Unbelievably the last league between these two was in 2004 when Newcastle won 1-0 at St James’ Park with their last meeting at Elland road finishing in a 2-2 draw.
Their most recent meeting came in 2013 in the League Cup when Newcastle ran out 2-0 winners.
Both men have in-form forwards in their line-ups with Dwight Gayle blazing a storm through the division. The former Crystal Palace man has scored 11 goals so far this season, three more than Leeds front man, Chris Woods.
The winner of this game would certainly take a giant leap forward in their bid for automatic promotion so there really is plenty to play for.
Newcastle are the favourites to bag the three points at 11/10, although with a partisan home support, Leeds could surprise a few at a tasty looking price of 3/1.
It looks a great way to kick off your Sunday football.
