Leeds kept their first clean sheet in eight league games despite playing in challenging conditions as the rain pelted down at St James’ Park and was fierce at moments.

Before Adams fouled him inside the box, Schar spearheaded the counterattack. The second half started with both goalkeepers working hard, and it was appropriate for a New Year’s Eve fireworks display. Wood received Trippier’s free kick after Botman pushed it down, but Meslier reacted fast to steal the ball from the striker’s boots.
