Leicester – Newcastle Match Prediction | 30-09-2019 11:30

Miguel Almiron-There are injury and fitness concerns in attack for Newcastle and the Paraguay attacker could be a key figure if Bruce opts for a strong line-up.Jonjo Shelvey-Dropped at the weekend, the midfielder will want to prove he should be straight back in the starting XI with a strong performance in mid-week.Yoshinori Muto -The Japanese striker could be handed his chance to show he can compete with Joelinton for a regular starting spot up front.

After coming from behind to beat star-studded Tottenham at their King Power Stadium, Leicester City will be looking to give fans yet another reason for celebration when they take on Newcastle United in yet another home game. The Foxes have been showing signs of improvement of late and seeing that they aim to retain their spot in top four, we believe that there is a big value in betting on Jamie Vardy and Co.

The Foxes look unstoppable at the moment and they head into the game against Rafa Benitezs troops following a routine 4-1 win over Huddersfield Town. The Magpies, on the other hand, suffered back-to-back losses to the likes of Arsenal and Crystal Palace in previous two league fixtures, with the team failing to find the net in those games. Lecester City will be looking to extend their winning run in the Premier League to five games when they host Newcastle United at their King Power Stadium on Friday evening.

James last weekend, Sundays guests have bagged just four goals so far this season, no side in the top-flight holds a worse attacking return. As for the visitors, while Leicester might be enjoying a battle at the top half of the table, Newcastle find themselves in a very different position. Largely outplayed by Brighton last weekend and managing to just scrape a 0-0 draw at St. Drawing a blank at St. James Park, a large section of fans in the North East are are still furious with Steve Bruces arrival over the summer. A huge part of Newcastles continued struggles at the start of the 2019/2020 campaign has come down to their toothless displays in the final third. With the former Sunderland boss watching his side now fail to win any of their last four matches across all competitions, the Magpies hold just a one-point buffer from slipping into the drop zone.

In addition, three of their last four clashes for the hosts in all competitions have seen them breach their foes post the restart. Taking into account that three of the last five goals for the Leicester here have seen also come in the latter forty-five minutes of the game, expect the Foxes to find the back of the net in the second half without fail.

Leicester come into this game as a real attacking threat, with Brendan Rodgers building a side that have variety going forward. They have pace and skill plus they can play the ball around or go direct with Vardy. Theyve got more than enough to test this Newcastle backline, especially a defence which has conceded six times against Nottingham Forest across their last two games in this competition.
