Leicester City host Newcastle United in the Premier League this weekend.

Newcastle have flirted with relegation throughout various times this season, however, a crucial 1-0 win over Huddersfield provided them with some respite as they find themselves seven points clear of the relegation zone.

Leicester have performed admirably under Claude Puel this season with Vicente Iborra and Jamie Vardy on target in last weekend’s 2-0 success at Brighton.

The Foxes will be hoping for another win to boost their hopes of European football next season.

In December Leicester won 3-2 at St James’ Park with Riyad Mahrez, Demarai Gray and a Perez own goal sealing the win.
