Newcastle vs Leicester Preview

Newcastle United have succumbed to back to back defeats, and their recent home fixture saw them suffer a 2-1 loss agaist a rejuvenated Everton outfit. In fact, they have lost three of their last four league fixtures. Coach Steve Bruce hopes his team will return to winning ways knowing very well that this upcoming fixture poses as a difficult encounter against a high-flying Leicester team. Defensively, the Magpies have shown to lack conviction as they have managed to keep only one clean sheet in their last five league matches. Nonetheless, Steve Bruce's warriors have been impressive at home, and they've only been defeated twice so far this season, although they have only managed to keep two cleansheets in their last fourteen home games in all competitions. If they can manage to solve their defensive leakages, they can make the most out of this fixture as they have proven to break teams from the counter.
Leicester City are having a great season so far, and no one could've imagine they would be sitting pretty in second place at this stage of the season, one point above defending champions Machester City. Their weekend fixture saw them register a win away at West Ham even without their talisman Jamie Vardy, who missed this fixture due to personal reason, although he is expected to return in the starting line up against the Magpies. Prior to this, Brendan Rodgers' outfit suffered back to back defeats against Manchester City and Liverpool respectively, but the coach has full faith in his team entering this fixture as they boast of the 3rd best attacking team and 2nd best defensive team this season.

Newcastle vs Leicester Predictions

A very tight affair is expected from this fixture and we expect plenty of goals out of it as both teams have previously showcased. If we factor in recent form, a win for the Foxes is highly likely to happen and we expect them to outshine the home side who have proven to be stubborn while playing infront of their home fans.
