It is a four-match winning streak that the Foxes have put together in the league. Last weekend they claimed an easy three points with a 4-1 win at bottom side Huddersfield. Leicester have taken a win in all but one of their last six Premier League games and they scored at least two goals in each of those successes in that sequence. On home soil this season they are at W7 D2 L7 in the top flight. They have won their last three on home soil, averaging 1.3 goals per home game overall.

Leicester have netted at least two goals in each of their last three on home soil as well. Leicester have taken a clean sheet in a quarter of home fixtures, but they have only managed one in their last eight. Of their seven home wins this season, five of the victories have been by a two-goal margin exactly. Home and away the Foxes are on an eight-match scoring streak, but they have actually only opened the scoring in five home games this season. They have not been involved in a home draw in ten matches now. Jamie Vardy has three goals in his last two games.

Newcastle News and Form

It has been back to back losses for Newcastle in the league. They lost 1-0 at home against Crystal Palace last weekend, which means that they are scoreless in two. Their home form is pretty much the only thing that is keeping them afloat. The Magpies have picked up just two away wins all season in the top flight (D7 L7) and they currently sit on an eight-match winless streak on the road. Newcastle have failed to score in three of their last five road fixtures. All season long they have been really lightweight in front of goal away from home.

Actually overall this season, only the current bottom three have scored fewer league goals than what Newcastle have managed. The Magpies have come up with 12 away goals, 75% of those being scored in the first half of fixtures. Only 38% of their away games have made it over 2.5 goals this season and they have conceded at an average of 1.4 goals per road fixture. Newcastle have no clean sheet in their last eight away games, conceding at least two goals in each of their last three. Newcastle have conceded 64% of away goals in the second period of fixtures.

Leicester to win: The Foxes look the sound bet to keep their strong home form going along at the moment. They have the scoring threat about them that the Magpies certainly don’t carry with them on the road. Home win to nil.
