Newcastle Utd Prediction – Can Newcastle pull out of slump?

Three defeats out of their last four matches in the Premier League has certainly taken the wind out of newcastle United’s sails as Steve Bruce’s side have dropped down to 11th place on the top flight table due to recent losses against Burnley, Manchester United and Everton.

Newcastle had previously enjoyed a solid sequence of results under manager, Steve Bruce, as The Magpies suffered just 1 defeat out of their previous 7 matches before the defeat to Burnley, but having suffered recent setbacks, this could be a tough fixture coming up for the hosts.

The defeat to Everton last time out at St James’ Park ended a promising run of 8 matches without defeat on home turf for the north-east club which included 4 wins and 4 draws, with notable wins against Manchester United and Crystal Palace.

The hosts still possess a reasonable looking home record of 4-4-2 11/9 but a lack of goals may hold them back against a confident and free-scoring Leicester City side who have won 3 of the last 4 meetings against Newcastle.

Leicester City Prediction – Can Leicester City go on winning run?

After being handed back-to-back defeats by Manchester City and Liverpool either side of Christmas, Leicester City bounced back with a 2-1 win away from home at struggling West Ham which ultimately ended Manuel Pellegrini’s tenure with the London club.

However, the win against West Ham saw Leicester City regain 2nd spot and with the likes of Newcastle United, Southampton, Burnley and West Ham in their upcoming fixture list, The Foxes may well fancy their chances of going on a winning run to further their ambitions for a Champions League spot next season.

Leicester City’s fast counter-attacking style may suit them better on the road here as well as the east midlands outfit have won 5 of their last 6 matches on their travels which includes wins at Southampton 9-0, Crystal Palace 2-0, Brighton 2-0, Aston Villa 4-1 and 2-1 at West Ham.

The visitors possess an away record of 6-1-3 24/10 and are likely to switch up to their strongest XI after rotating their squad against West Ham, and the likes of striker Jamie Vardy (17 goals) and midfielder Maddison (5 goals) should be in the starting line-up for the trip up to the north-east.
