Newcastle United vs Leicester City
Sunday 17 April, 14:15
Despite a poor start to the season, Newcastle United are in 15th place in the Premier League table at the moment. With the 1-0 win over Wolverhampton Wanderers last week, the Magpies are confident heading into this game.
With a 1-0 win at home over Wolves, Newcastle United ended a worrying three-match losing streak
Prior to last week’s victory, Newcastle had lost away to Chelsea, Everton, and Tottenham.
In Newcastle’s last six home games, they have won four of them, and four of them have resulted in under 2.5 goals.
Leicester City are currently ranked ninth in the Premier League standings and have been inconsistent so far this season. Foxes edged out PSV Eindhoven 2-1 in their previous match and will be looking for a similar result this weekend.
The Foxes also won all three points in their match against Crystal Palace last weekend. Leicester City defeated Palace 2-1 at the King Power Stadium, making it just one defeat in their last six matches overall and four wins.
In spite of that win, Leicester City are still 11 points behind West Ham and the top six teams, so all three points are essential to keep their slim hopes of finishing in the top six alive.
Only one win has been achieved by Leicester City away from home in their last nine Premier League games. Five losses in this period indicate that away matches are an uphill task for the Foxes.
Five of Leicester’s last nine away games have also been under 2.5 goals.
