The Premier League match between Leicester City and Newcastle would be played on 8th May at the King Power Stadium, at 12:30 AM (IST). While Newcastle are at the 17th position on the points table, Leicester City are in the third position of the table, just below Manchester City and United, and look all set to finish in the top 4 of the league. This game is essentially a toss-up between a low-lying Newcastle and a high-flying and energetic Leicester City.
Isaac Hayden, Ryan Fraser, Jamaal Lascelles and goalkeeper Karl Darlow will miss the game owing to their injuries. While defender Fabian Schar is suspended for this game.
Wes Morgan might miss out on the game due to an injury. James Justin and Harvey Barnes will be missing out on this game for sure due to injuries.
Newcastle United have had a low-lying season in the Premier League and are languishing at the 17th position in the table. They are coming on the back off a massive defeat at the hands of Arsenal, losing the game 2-0. In the course of their last game, their key defender Fabian Schar received a red card and has been suspended for this game against Leicester City. Newcastle will have to be on their toes in this game in order to match up to the level of Leicester City.
On the other hand, Leicester City have dominated this season and have been a constant in the top-4 by displaying good football in all the games they have played. The Foxes have registered 19 wins so far in the tournament and are coming on the back off 2 straight wins and a draw against Southampton in their last game with Evans’ goal coming right after James Ward Prowse’s penalty. Leicester have an edge over Newcastle, given their impressive season, a win in this game would further solidify their position in the points table and help them finish in the top 4.
