Leicester City v Newcastle United Match Preview & Trends

Bruce needs a victory to ease relegation fears amongst Geordie faithful

Newcastle United travel south to face Leicester City at the King Power Stadium on Friday night knowing that after losing at home to Arsenal, they are now ominously looking over their shoulders at the relegation zone. The magpies are just 9 points clear of the dreaded drop-zone and do not want to get dragged further into the survival battle because any further slip ups with so few matches remaining. Steve Bruce will be boosted by the return of in form midfielder Joe Willock who was ineligible to face hos parent club in the last game as he is on loan from the Gunners. Willock will hope to continue his goalscoring streak gaving netted 3 i his last 4 matches before being forced to miss the 0-2 defeat to his primary employers, Arsenal.

Brendan Rodgers has no such problem with his Leicester City side flying high in the league and having already booked themselves an F.A Cup Final place. The foxes are currently in 3rd place and look to be in a strong position to finish in the Champions League places come the end of the season. They scarcely missed record-breaking goalscorer Jamie Vardy when he had corrective surgery earlier this year due to the form of Nigerian striker, Kelechi Iheanacho who has finally started to justify the prci-tag on his head since his move from Manchester City after years in Vardy’s shadow. 

There have been exactly 2 goals in 10 out of 17 Newcastle’s Premier League away games this season and at least 2 goals were scored in 7 out of the last 10 games between these two sides.
