Newcastle United will entertain Leicester City at St. James’ Park this Monday night as they look to secure a good result at home in the Premier League. The Magpies managed to earn a dominant 4-1 win over Brighton and Hove Albion recently which will keep them in high spirits going into this clash versus the Foxes.
Eddie Howe will stick with his favoured 4-3-3 formation and is expected to make one tweak to his first XI for this game. Elliot Anderson will get a chance to make an impact from the start of this contest as Joe Willock is unlikely to recover in time for this game.
4-3-3 Newcastle United Predicted Lineup To Face Leicester City
Nick Pope will operate in between the sticks for the Magpies after shipping in just one goal in his last league outing. Fabian Schar will continue to function alongside Sven Botman at the centre of Newcastle’s backline as they try to keep things solid at the back during the 90 minutes.
Kieran Trippier is a slight doubt for this game and will get the nod to start as the right-back if he can pass a late fitness test. Dan Burn will look to impress on the other flank as the left-back. Howe will give both of them the license to get forward and express themselves in the Leicester half.
Paul Dummett will provide cover for the defensive positions on the bench.
Joelinton, Bruno Guimaraes and Elliot Anderson will make up Newcastle’s midfield as they look to set the tempo of the game at the centre of the park. All three of them need to be at the top of their game if the Magpies are to come out on top at St. James’ Park this Monday night.
Sean Longstaff and Joe Willock are both unlikely to recover in time for this clash versus the Foxes.
Alexander Isak could get another opportunity to impress as the left-sided wide player while Miguel Almiron looks to put his pace to good use on the right flank.
Callum Wilson will once again lead the line for the Tyneside club on the attacking end of the pitch. He managed to score against Brighton which has given him more confidence ahead of this Monday night match in the Premier League.
Allan Saint-Maximin and Anthony Gordon will have to be content with a spot on the bench as they wait for their chance to influence the game in the latter stages if Newcastle are in need of a goal by then.
