THE TEAM NEWS

LEICESTER

  • Leicester come off an excellent come-from-behind win over Spurs last week and then an emphatic 4-0 victory at Luton in the League Cup.
  • Brendan Rodgers fielded a strong team with only a handful of key men like Ricardo Pereira and Vardy rested for that League Cup match.
  • He will revert to the side that beat Tottenham although Maddison is set to miss out so Praet or potentially Choudhury could come in.

Predicted line-up (4-1-4-1): Schmeichel; Ricardo Pereira, Evans, Soyuncu, Chilwell; Ndidi; Ayoze Perez, Praet, Tielemans, Barnes; Vardy

Unavailable: Amartey (Injured), James (Injured)

Doubtful: Maddison (Injured)

NEWCASTLE

  • Newcastle picked up a point against Brighton last weekend which means their only defeat in their last four games has come against Liverpool.
  • Steve Bruce was able to count on Saint-Maximin and Carroll after injury last week and they offer him more attacking options off the bench.
  • He may be tempted to go with an unchanged team here with Saint-Maximin likely to be held on the bench again as he builds his fitness.

Predicted line-up (5-4-1): Dubravka; Javi Manquillo, Schar, Lascelles, Dummett, Willems; Almiron, Longstaff, Hayden, Atsu; Joelinton

Unavailable: Colback (Injured), Lejeune (Injured), Gayle (Injured), Shelvey (Injured), Ritchie (Injured)

Doubtful: Yedlin (Injured), Longstaff (Injured)

THE PREDICTION

Leicester's resounding win over Luton in the League Cup in midweek shows just how much depth and quality they have in their squad, but they face a Newcastle team that will come to frustrate them. Steve Bruce's men are improving defensively and will look to make this another low-scoring game.
