Leicester City will welcome Newcastle United at the King Power Stadium this Sunday as both sides look to get the better of each other in the Premier League. The Foxes suffered a 3-2 defeat at the hands of Napoli in midweek. In contrast, the Magpies picked up a hard-fought 1-0 win over Burnley last weekend which will keep them in high spirits ahead of this game.

Leicester City Vs Newcastle United Tactical Preview

Brendan Rodgers will opt for a 4-3-3 formation and could make one change to his starting XI for this game. The Foxes boss will instruct his men to dominate the ball and create enough chances to win this league clash at home.

Eddie Howe could set his team up in a 4-4-1-1 formation and could keep changes to a minimum for this clash. The Newcastle head coach will ask his players to sit back and soak in all the pressure before trying to expose some of Leicester’s defensive weaknesses on the counter.

Team News

Leicester City

James Justin is a major doubt for this game and might not be risked this weekend. Otherwise, Rodgers has no fresh injury concerns to cope with ahead of this contest.

Leicester City Predicted XI

Schmeichel, Castagne, Evans, Soyuncu, Thomas, Dewsbury-Hall, Ndidi, Tielemans, Maddison, Vardy, Barnes

Newcastle United

Both Ryan Fraser (minor hamstring) and Fabian Schar (rib) are significant concerns for this game as they continue to recover from their respective injuries. Still, Howe should have a strong squad to choose from this weekend.

Newcastle United Predicted XI

Dubravka, Manquillo, Schar, Lascelles, Lewis, Almiron, Shelvey, Willock, Saint-Maximin, Joelinton, Wilson

Key Men

Leicester City

Jamie Vardy will once again carry most of Leicester’s goal-scoring workload up top. Both Wilfred Ndidi and Youri Tielemans need to have a good game in midfield if the Foxes are to collect maximum points from this home encounter.

Newcastle United

Callum Wilson will be Newcastle’s best hope for a goal this Sunday afternoon. The defensive performance of Fabian Schar and Jamaal Lascelles could very well determine the fate of this league game.
