With a big win over Tottenham Hotspur and a midweek thrashing of Luton Town, Leicester City have taken their season long win streak to...two games. It’s also coincided with their best form of the season though, and will hopefully carry into this one.
Newcastle aren’t looking as hot, with two points from their last three, including home fixtures against relegations rivals. Still, they beat Spurs (who hasn't) and their only loss since was at Liverpool. The Foxes should be prepared for the challenge of a defensive team looking to grind a point, but are still big favourites.

Leicester City Team News:
Brendan Rodgers stopped short of ruling out James Maddison, but it does look like he’s unlikely to feature at all this week. Filip Benkovic played 90 minutes for the U23s while Daniel Amartey made the bench for the cup. I wouldn’t expect to see either, but they are both fit again.
Newcastle United Team News:
The Magpies are without Jonjo Shelvey, Allan Saint-Maximin and Dwight Gayle, though Sean Longstaff should be fit. Both Matt Ritchie and DeAndre Yedlin have been long term absentees, but are close to a return and could get a chance on the bench, if they can pass fitness tests.
