EPL

Leeds United 0-1 Newcastle United

Newcastle secures just their second win of this Premier League season against Leeds to give their chances of staying up a big boost.

However, Shelvey’s free-kick has proven to be the difference in what has been a scrappy, short-on-quality affair.

Leeds were more than up for the game but have been punished for their profligacy in the final third.

Newcastle’s survival hopes get a shot in the arm, then, with more reinforcements to come before January is out.

The Geordies don’t have to start their Saudi revolution from the Championship just yet.

Starting Lineup:

LEEDS UNITED (4-1-4-1): Illan Meslier;

Goals:

0-1. Shelvey makes Leeds pay with his setpiece prowess! The former England man bends his free-kick low around Leeds’ wall towards the bottom right corner. Consequently, Meslier dives to save it but can’t keep it out.

Eddie Howe Post interview:

“I thought to a man everybody really contributed to the win.”

“An incredible intensity – it always is against Leeds.”

“We had to be very good physically and we’ve ended up with a few injuries but it was a heroic effort in the end.”

“If anything we looked like the team that might score again.”

On the fans:

“Right from early in the game they were brilliant.”

“Leeds can be a hostile atmosphere but I cannot pay enough compliments to that support.”

“It does make you think what could be if we could bring consistent success here.”
