Newcastle United Preview – Can Newcastle gain timely win?

Newcastle United dropped down to 14th place on the Premier League table despite a creditable 0-0 draw at home with Liverpool last time out in the top flight but this result only extended Newcastle’s run of matches without a win to four overall.

An earlier draw with Fulham has been overshadowed by defeats against Leeds United 5-2 and Manchester City 2-0, both away from home, while The Magpies have picked up just two wins out of their last eight matches overall.

Wins against Crystal Palace and West Brom have enabled Newcastle to steer clear of the relegation zone for the time being but having registered just three wins out of their last 12 matches at St James’ Park, the hosts look far from a guaranteed win here.

Our betting suggestion:
Both teams to score

Leicester City Preview – Can Leicester stay in touch at top?

Leicester City dropped down to 3rd place in the Premier League following their 1-1 draw away from home at Crystal Palace but The Foxes take a three-match unbeaten run in the top flight up to the north-east for this Sunday’s clash at Newcastle United.

Leicester City have lost just one out of their last six matches which came in the shape of a 2-0 loss at home to Everton but aside from that loss, Brendan Rodgers’s side have pickled up impressive wins against Sheffield United, Brighton and most notable of all, a 2-0 win away from home at Tottenham.

The Foxes’ counter-attacking approach has also worked wonders on the road so far this season too as the visitors possess an impressive away record which stands at 6-1-1 18/8 with five of these eight away matches seeing Leicester score 2 goals or more.
