Did you know?

Raphinha has scored in his last two Premier League appearances against Newcastle United for Leeds United. The last Whites player to score in three consecutive league appearances against the Magpies was Albert Johanneson in October 1967. 

Following wins over Burnley and West Ham United in their first two league matches of 2022, Leeds are looking to win their first three league matches in a year for the first time since 1973 under Don Revie. 

Leeds have scored three goals in each of their last two Premier League matches, 3-1 and 3-2 wins over Burnley and West Ham respectively. They last scored 3+ goals in three consecutive Premier League contests in December 2001, while they last won three in a row while scoring at least three back in November 1997. 

Newcastle have scored first in 10 Premier League encounters this season and only gone on to win one of those (D6 L3). That win ratio of 10 per cent is the lowest by any side in Premier League history in a single season when scoring first.
