Player ratings as Magpies snatch crucial win


90min reporting from Elland Road as Newcastle United gave their hopes of staying in the Premier League a huge boost with a 1-0 win against Leeds United.

The only goal of the game arrived with just 16 minutes left as Jonjo Shelvey’s low driven free-kick got the better of Leeds keeper Illan Meslier.

Leeds enjoyed the majority of possession but they did little with it as Martin Dubravka was barely tested in the Newcastle goal.

Raphinha and Dan James did their best but Leeds’ lack of a striker was apparent throughout.

Shelvey had kept Newcastle ticking over from his deep lying midfield role and almost put them ahead late in the first-half when his dipping volley was tipped wide by Meslier.
