Leicester vs Newcastle United
England – Premier League
Date: Sunday, 29 September 2019
Kick-off at 16:30 UK / 17:30 CET
Venue: King Power Stadium (Leicester).
With just one defeat from their last six games, Leicester’s solid start to their domestic campaign has rewarded them with the third spot in the ladder along with eleven points to their name. The squad pulled off a 4-0 win over Luton in their recent Carabao Cup clash while their previous Premier League matchup saw them defeat Tottenham with a 2-1 scoreline at home.
Newcastle have not had a taste of success since their 1-0 victory over Spurs in game week three. The visitors were forced to settle for no more than a point in their last home game against Brighton, taking their overall tally to just five from a maximum of eighteen points.
It is also worth mentioning that the Magpies were taken out of the Carabao Cup a few weeks ago by this very same opponent. However, with home advantage favoring Leicester, revenge is certainly not on the cards for Newcastle this Sunday.

Leicester vs Newcastle United Prediction
With back to back wins on home soil, it goes without saying that the Foxes have been a convincing bunch in front of their home fans. On the other hand, Newcastle have just one win to boast of from their previous three outings and have lost by a two-goal margin in two of those clashes.
Although the bragging rights have been in swinging in favor of the Magpies in their last two visits here, getting the better of Leicester who are unbeaten at home so far, just seems too herculean a task for Newcastle to pull off at the moment.
In addition, three of their last four clashes for the hosts in all competitions have seen them breach their foes post the restart. Taking into account that three of the last five goals for the Leicester here have seen also come in the latter forty-five minutes of the game, expect the Foxes to find the back of the net in the second half without fail.
