Leicester City and Newcastle United go head-to-head at the King Power Stadium, as the home side look to stretch their unbeaten Premier League (PL) home run to six games (W3, D2).
Unbeaten at home, the hosts have won two and drawn once so far, with both of those wins seeing them score two goals or more and concede precisely one. Going back to February, Leicester have won six of nine PL home outings, losing only once in the process (W6, D2, L1). What’s more, they’ve restricted their rivals to a maximum of one goal per match each time, netting 2+ match goals on six occasions in that span. Such run of form can encourage the Foxes ahead of this clash to try to snap their two-game PL losing run to Newcastle at home.
The visitors have, meanwhile, won just one of six PL fixtures this term (W1, D2, L3), with only two of those games featuring three goals or more. Particularly ponderous in attack so far, the Magpies have bagged one goal or less in all six league outings, netting an average of 0.66 goals per match to date. Also, three of four league goals Steve Bruce’s men have scored so far have come away from home, and three of four have also arrived in the first half. A stunning 1-0 win over Tottenham aside, the Magpies have lost both of their remaining PL trips this term by the identical 3-1 scoreline.
