After securing a slender win over Wolves last Friday, Newcastle have all but secured another season in the Premier League and with safety nearly locked up, the last few weeks will be a real test of their ambitions.

While the same could also be said for Leicester after their win over Crystal Palace and with a top-ten finish now looking all the more likely, they will look to further solidify their standing with a win on Tyneside.

Newcastle Win And Under 2.5 Total Goals

With a win over Wolves now in the history books, Newcastle have won each of their last four league outings at St James’ Park and it is this form that has largely kept them clear of the Premier League relegation zone.

While this is something that I have taken into consideration when looking at all the biggest and best betting sites and although Leicester are higher in the table, they have their European exploits in midweek to deal with.

Which means I am going to plump for not only a fifth successive win at home for Newcastle but also a total of under 2.5 goals and if you think that will also be the case, you can back this outcome at odds of 4/1 (bet365).

Newcastle Form, squad news, opinion

After getting the better of Wolves last Friday, Newcastle manager Eddie Howe would have then looked at results elsewhere and with the rest of the weekend largely being a positive one for the Magpies, it means safety is all but assured.

Not mathematically assured just yet, but it certainly looks likely and when you consider the position that Newcastle were in at the turn of the year, it is fairly clear that a huge transformation has taken place.

One that sees the St James’ Park outfit complete the first phase of their project and with their new owners ready to spend over the course of the summer, it will be interesting to see what the second phase brings.

Especially as Newcastle could even finish in the top-ten of this Premier League season and if that proves to be the case, they will only become a more attractive proposition to prospective signings.

While they can reinforce their bid for a top-ten finish this weekend and if they can get the better of Leicester at home, then the once unlikely target will now become even more of a reality.

In terms of injuries and suspensions for the visit of Leicester, the injury list is only slightly shorter for manager Eddie Howe, and this means that Callum Wilson, Kieran Trippier and Joe Willock are set to be all unavailable.

Leicester Form, squad news, opinion

Even though Leicester manager Brendan Rodgers ran the changes last weekend, it did little to stop the Foxes and after getting the better of Crystal Palace at the King Power Stadium, it also solidified their status in the top-ten of the Premier League table.

While before this weekend’s action gets underway, Leicester find themselves currently lying in 9th position and although they have three games in hand over Wolves in 8th, reeling the Molineux outfit in looks rather unlikely.

Especially as Leicester are still aiming to be a going concern in Europe and if they can get the better of PSV Eindhoven in the second leg of the last eight Europa Conference League encounter, it will give the manager something of a balancing act.

An act that we have already seen and with European success now being a clear priority, a 9th place finish in the Premier League will be the maximum for Brendan Rodgers and his players.

A position that would be considered something of a disappointment when compared to the past two finishes and the only way to alleviate that misery, is by earning a backdoor entry to the Europa League at the end of the season.

In terms of injuries and suspensions for the trip to Newcastle, there are no new injuries for Brendan Rodgers to deal with. However, this means he is once again without the services of Jamie Vardy, Jonny Evans and Danny Ward.


When it comes to the history of Newcastle and Leicester, it is the hosts who have come out on top more often than not and with the Magpies just having a slight advantage, they will hope to land another victory over the Foxes at the weekend.

About the Venue

St James Park opened in 1880 and holds up to 52,338 supporters

Although St James Park gives up a little in terms of capacity, it arguably packs the biggest noise in the Premier League and with the club being down on their luck in the first half of the season, their fans continued to stand by them.

While it is this loyalty that has been repaid in spades during the second half of the campaign, their continual support at home has played a big part in Newcastle distancing themselves from the Premier League relegation zone.


As far as the Premier League outright markets are concerned, there is not a great deal of interest as far as Newcastle are concerned and the only thing that might be of appeal to punters, is a potential top-ten finish.

While the same could also be said for Leicester and with the Foxes also a going concern in the Europa Conference League, it may make more sense to back their progress in that competition instead.
