Leicester vs Newcastle: Premier League preview

Leicester City host Newcastle United at the King Power Stadium on Saturday.

Newcastle moved up to 12th in the league table last weekend following their 1-0 home win over Huddersfield. Ayoze Perez scored the winner 10 minutes from time. A win on Saturday would be their third in a row.

That seems unlikely though. The Magpies’ away form is considerably worse than their form at St James’ Park. Rafa Benitez’s side have failed to win any of their last five on the road.

Claude Puel’s side begin the weekend in a respectable eighth place. The Foxes were 2-0 winners at Brighton last time out thanks to late goals from Vicente Iborra and Jamie Vardy.

Leicester are also unbeaten in their last six home matches in the Premier League.

The two sides played out a thrilling contest in their last meeting in December. A late Ayoze Perez own goal handed Leicester a 3-2 win at St James’ Park. Joselu, Dwight Gayle, Riyad Mahrez and Demarai Gray were the other goalscorers.

Both teams to score in both halves & either team to win: 20/1 with Ladbrokes
