Newcastle United player ratings from the goalless draw with Leeds United at a rainy St James’ Park.

Newcastle United were held to a goalless draw by Leeds United in their final game of 2022.

The Magpies marginally improved after the break as Chris Wood and Sean Longstaff, twice, missed big chances to claim three points.

United remain third in the Premier League table ahead of facing league leaders Arsenal on January 3.
