Key Stat: Newcastle are without a win in seven matches so far this season in all competitions, drawing two and losing five.
Expert Verdict: Newcastle’s miserable form needs to be taken into context given the teams they have played so far, but they have also failed to break down Cardiff and Crystal Palace and still look short in attack. Leicester’s away form leaves a lot to be desired but they do have goals in them and with Newcastle lacking an attacking threat, that could make the difference.
Newcastle United vs Leicester City Prediction & Betting Tips
Newcastle United Team News, Updates, and Facts
Newcastle Team News
Striker Salomon Rondon faces a late fitness test after picking up a knock against Crystal Palace, which would mean Joselu returning up front. Florian Lejeune is still sidelined, but Newcastle are otherwise still at full strength.
Newcastle Key Players
Joselu – If Salomon Rondon misses out, Newcastle’s top scorer will return up front and look to build on his two goals from seven appearances.
Jonjo Shelvey – If Newcastle are to break this run of form, Jonjo Shelvey’s passing and vision will be integral.
Ayoze Perez – Still looking for his first goal of this season, but he did score when Newcastle won at Leicester last season.
Newcastle Team Form
The goalless draw with Crystal Palace last time out ended Newcastle’s four-match losing streak, during which they had lost to Chelsea, Manchester City and Arsenal in the league and Nottingham Forest in the Carabao Cup. Last time out at home, Ciaran Clark’s late goal proved to be just a consolation as they lost 2-1 to Arsenal, a fortnight after defeat by the same scoreline, after DeAndre Yedlin’s goal, to Manchester City.
Newcastle United Predicted Starting Line up
Expected Line up: 4-4-1-1
Newcastle United likely XI
Defenders:DeAndre Yedlin, Jamal Lascelles, Federico Fernandez, Paul Dummett
Defensive Midfielders:Matt Ritchie, Mo Diame, Jonjo Shelvey, Kenedy
Attacking Midfielders:Ayoze Perez
Leicester City Team News, Updates, and Facts
Leicester City Team News
Wes Morgan is available again after suspension but Jonny Evans and Harry Maguire may be ahead of him at centre-back. Demarai Gray went off injured as Leicester beat Wolves on penalties in the Carabao Cup, while Matty James remains absent. Gray’s injury should mean Rachid Ghezzal starts, despite having been replaced at half-time by Gray in the last league game.
Leicester City Key Players
Jamie Vardy – Scored his second goal of the season in the win against Huddersfield last time out, and remains Leicester’s star striker.
James Maddison – Three goals so far this season have proved the former Norwich man can thrive in the Premier League.
Kelechi Iheanacho – Has earned a starting spot thanks to two goals and two assists so far this season – he scored one and made one last time out.
Leicester City Team Form
Leicester have won two of their last five matches and also beat Wolves on penalties after a goalless draw in the Carabao Cup on Tuesday. They beat Huddersfield in their last league game, bouncing back after conceding early thanks to goals from Kelechi Iheanacho, James Maddison and Jamie Vardy. Maddison also scored in the game against Bournemouth, their most recent away game, but the 4-2 scoreline flattered Leicester considering they were 4-0 down at one point.
Leicester City Predicted Starting Line up
Expected Line up: 4-2-3-1
Leicester City likely XI
Defenders:Daniel Amartey, Jonny Evans, Harry Maguire, Ben Chilwell
Defensive Midfielders:Wilfried Ndidi, Nampalys Mendy
Attacking Midfielders:Rachid Ghezzal, Kelechi Iheanacho, James Maddison
Newcastle United vs Leicester City Head-to-Head Stats
Leicester have won 52 of their 122 previous matches against Newcastle, with 27 draws and 43 Newcastle wins. More recently, Leicester had won five in a row before Newcastle’s 2-1 win at the King Power Stadium in April. Jonjo Shelvey and Ayoze Perez scored Newcastle’s goals in that game, with Jamie Vardy’s late goal not enough for the hosts. It followed an entertaining game at St James Park earlier in the season, in which Perez’s late own goal earned Leicester a 3-2 win. Joselu and Dwight Gayle scored for Newcastle, while Riyad Mahrez and Demarai Gray netted Leicester’s other goals.
NUFC vs LCFC Betting Tips
Newcastle have not won since the last game of last season, though they have had a difficult start to the year. Nevertheless, the ‘easier’ games on paper have both ended in goalless draws, highlighting the lack of attacking firepower that has been one of their primary downfalls.
They have currently scored less as a team than former striker Aleksandar Mitrovic has managed individually this season, and with Salomon Rondon an injury doubt they lose the focal point of their attack too.
Leicester, on the other hand, have scored plenty but conceded at the other end. Jamie Vardy, James Maddison and Kelechi Iheanacho – their goalscorers last time out – have all linked up well so far, forming a strong attacking unit.
At the other end, England international Harry Maguire and experienced defender Jonny Evans are at the heart of the defence but that is where Leicester can make improvements.
Their away record is not great either – something that has carried on from the previous season – but the Foxes can win this one. Newcastle have been made favourites but that is a surprise in many ways – Leicester are in better form than winless Newcastle and look dangerous in attack.
Leicester City vs Newcastle Recommended bets with odds
Newcastle are favourites according to the bookmakers, with Betfair offering the best price of 17/10 on a Newcastle win, whereas Leicester can be backed at 19/10 with Betway or 2/1 with 888sport.

As for the other end, Leicester’s Jamie Vardy is 19/10 to score at any time, having also netted last time out, while top scorer James Maddison – who has been on set piece duty – is 17/5 and worth backing.
Leicester City vs Newcastle United Prediction
Newcastle’s poor form at the start of the season makes it hard to back the hosts for this one. Leicester have the form and firepower to get a result at St James Park.
