You only ever really know in hindsight, but the season may have turned a corner this last seven days. The Foxes picked up their first comfortable win of the year over Huddersfield, followed by a penalty shoot out win over Wolves, who are still yet to lose to any other team this year.
The opposition could have been tougher, but that will remain the case this weekend, in Newcastle. The Magpies have had a rough start to the season, playing four of the big boys, but so far only have points from a pair of 0-0 draws, and were knocked out of the cup by some rubbish bunch from Nottingham.

Leicester City Team News:
Demarai Gray will be sidelined for about six weeks with an ankle injury picked up against Wolves. It’s better than feared, but he’s certainly unavailable for a while. There are no other injury concerns, plus Wes Morgan returns from suspension. It seems we are unlikely to see Çaglar Söyüncü, who is apparently struggling with the language.
Newcastle Team News:
Salomon Rondon has been ruled out for the next couple of weeks, while DeAndre Yedlin will face a late fitness test. If he can’t go, they’ll join long term absentees Florian Lejeune, Paul Dummett and Frederico Fernandez on the sidelines.
