Leicester City Prediction – Can Leicester City keep momentum going?

With just 1 defeat out of their first 6 matches played in this season’s Premier League, Leicester City occupy 3rd place in the top flight and trail 2nd placed Manchester City by just a 2-point margin as we head into this weekend’s football.

The Foxes’ one defeat came in the shape of a 1-0 loss away at Manchester United, but 3 wins from their last 4 matches in the Premier League have lifted the east midlands club into early Champions League reckoning.

Victories against Sheffield United 2-1 away, a 3-1 home win against Bournemouth and a 2-1 win over Tottenham, again at home, have seen Leicester City rise again in these early stages of this season’s top flight campaign.

Having lost just once at home in their last 9 matches, Leicester City manager, Brendan Rodgers, has certainly transformed The Foxes from a side that were, at best, a mid-table outfit, to one that can make a serious challenge for a tops six finish this term

Newcastle United Prediction – Can Newcastle pull away from bottom three?

Visitors, Newcastle United, occupy a lowly 17th place on the Premier League ladder prior to this difficult looking trip to the east midlands to face an in-form Leicester City outfit at the King Power Stadium on Sunday afternoon.

The Magpies have registered just 1 win so far in this new campaign which was a surprising 1-0 win away at Tottenham, but 3 defeats from these first 6 matches of the new season has resulted in Newcastle United occupying a place in the lower regions of the division.

Losses to Arsenal, Norwich City and Liverpool have prevented Steve Bruce’s side from starting any kind of momentum, while recent stalemates with Watford 1-1 and Brighton 0-0 have done little to appease the growing unrest on the terraces at St James’ Park, with Bruce starting to come under increasing pressure for results.

Newcastle have managed just 3 away wins out of their last 14 matches on their travels and this includes a 1-0 win away at today’s opponents, Leicester City, but it should be noted that Brendan Rodgers was still sorting his Leicester side out while Newcastle were enjoying the wily tenure of former manager, Rafa Benitez.


Key-Facts – Leicester City v Newcastle United

  • Leicester City have lost just 1 of their last 9 home matches in the EPL
  • Leicester City have won 6 of these last 9 at home which includes 4 clean sheets
  • Newcastle have managed just 3 away wins out of their last 14 matches in the EPL


Betting Tips Verdict

Leicester City are a far different prospect under Rodgers while Newcastle look short of ideas up front.
