Leicester earned both successful results just at King Power. In general, in terms of playing at the home arena, the Foxes are one of the most uncompromising teams in the championship. In 17 home matches, they played only once in their home walls in a draw, gaining nine wins and losing seven matches. This is the sixth highest result in the Premier League in a home game.
In the standings, Brendan Rogers' charges continue to hold the third place. Leicester are now four points behind the second Manchester United, two points ahead of Chelsea and five behind West Ham. However, the Foxes have far from guaranteed a place in the Champions League, as the team's finish is not easy. After Newcastle, they will still have to play away against Manchester United and Chelsea and take Tottenham in the final round. So in this regard, the duel with the "magpies" can be considered the easiest.
Due to injuries, defenders James Justin, Harvey Barnes, midfielder Wes Morgan will miss the next fight. Doubtful is Johnny Evans.
In the match of the last round, Steve Bruce's wards lost at their home arena to Arsenal, thus interrupting a series of four matches without defeat. During this successful period, Newcastle managed to defeat Burnley (2:1) and West Ham (3:2) and also ended in a draw with Tottenham (2:2) and Liverpool (1:1).
On the road, Newcastle are not particularly happy with their results in the current championship. For 17 away matches, the "magpies" have achieved only four victories, drew four times and lost in nine matches. Note that the Magpies score very little on the rivals' fields. For 17 away matches, they scored only 14 times, which is worse than Sheffield United.
Defender Jamaal Lassell, midfielders Isaac Hayden and Ryan Fraser and goalkeeper Karl Darlow will miss the match due to injuries. So, what is the soccer bet prediction for today?
