As reported by NUFC.co.uk, Leeds United manager Garry Monk has spoken highly of Newcastle United and their manager Rafa Benitez.
Speaking to LUTV, Monk said: “On paper this will be the toughest test of the season.
“They are top of the league, which means they have been the best team so far.
“They have high calibre players and a high calibre manager, they have the most expensive team in the league, so you would expect them to be where they are.”
He does however, remain confident and he added: “Our approach is no different, our job is to give 100 per cent and try and put our best football on the pitch and we know that when we do that we can fight for a result.
“We have a capacity crowd ready to support the team, we want to send people home happy and we are going out there determined to win the game.”
