Newcastle will be looking to hold on to their place in the Premier League top four when they host Leicester City at St. James’ Park on Monday.
Following their 3-0 win at the King Power Stadium in December, Newcastle are looking to complete their first Premier League double over Leicester since 1994-95. The Magpies have also won their final home league game in seven of the last nine seasons, with the exceptions being consecutive defeats against Liverpool in 2018-19 and 2019-20.
They head into this fixture on the back of a thumping 4-1 win over Brighton & Hove Albion and will hope to continue their rich vein of form.
Meanwhile, the Foxes are struggling for survival as they are currently in the 19th spot with 30 points from 36 matches. They come into this match on the back of two defeats against Fulham and Liverpool, which further complicates the equation.
Moreover, Leicester has conceded 41 away league goals in the 2022-23 campaign, their most in a season since letting 44 away goals in during the 2010-11 Championship campaign, which is another concern before facing a free-scoring Newcastle.
