Premier League

6 Best Of Friday Mega Jackpot Games With 78.56 Odds

Newcastle and Leeds will be looking for their maiden wins of the season when they come across each other in the first game of the Matchday No 5 in the Premier League on Friday evening at St. James’ Park. Neither Newcastle nor Leeds are pulling up any trees at the beginning of the new season.

While nobody quite expected the Magpies to shine, Leeds’ negative start to the 2021/22 Premier League campaign came as somewhat of a surprise following their decent run in the previous term. Whether it is a second-season (since the promotion) syndrome or not, we could find out on Friday when Leeds arguably have the easiest fixture since the beginning of the campaign.

Marcelo Bielsa’s men are generally looking ahead of a much brighter schedule in the next weeks with the matches against the likes of Newcastle, West Ham, Watford, Southampton, Wolves, and Norwich upcoming in the next six rounds. The Argentinean manager, however, has huge problems with his team’s defensive line as Sunday’s 0-3 defeat to Liverpool saw Diego Llorente’s injury and Pascal Struijk’s red card.

The already-limited rotation was thus further reduced, meaning Newcastle should have plenty of space to deliver up front on Friday.

The Magpies do have injury woes of their own at the opposite end, though, with their talisman Callum Wilson being sidelined for the game. This leaves Allan Saint-Maximin as the only serious attacking option. The French winger has been fantastic at the start of the season and we do expect him to shine past the leaky defense of Leeds’ on Friday
