Newcastle beats Leeds 1-0 for 2nd win in Premier League


LEEDS, England (AP) — Newcastle claimed just its second Premier League win of the season by beating Leeds 1-0 in a big boost to its ambitions of avoiding relegation.

The victory wasn’t enough to lift Newcastle out of the relegation zone but the Saudi-owned team is only one point from safety with a game in hand on fourth-to-last Norwich, which won at Watford on Friday.
