Team news, key stats and predictions ahead of Leicester vs Newcastle in the Premier League.
James Maddison is facing a race against time to be ready for Leicester after picking up a knock in their win over Tottenham last weekend, in which he scored a late winner.
Sean Longstaff should be fit enough to return for Newcastle after missing out on their last two games, while DeAndre Yedlin is back in contention for the first time this season. But Jonjo Shelvey, who is suffering from a hamstring injury, will miss out for the next two weeks.
How to watch
Leicester vs Newcastle is live on Super Sunday from 4pm; kick-off 4.30pm. Sky Sports customers can watch in-game clips in the live match blog on the Sky Sports website and app. Highlights will also be published on the Sky Sports digital platforms and the Sky Sports Football YouTube channel shortly after the final whistle.
- Leicester have lost their last two home Premier League games against Newcastle having lost just two of the previous 10 (W4 D4 L2).
- Since moving to the King Power Stadium at the start of the 2002-03 season, only four teams have won three consecutive away league games at Leicester, most recently West Brom between 2007 and 2014; no team has ever done so in three consecutive away Premier League games.
- Leicester have won just two of their last 18 Premier League matches on Sundays (W2 D7 L9) and have lost both of their previous Sunday meetings with Newcastle in 1994 and 1997.
- The last four Premier League meetings between Leicester and Newcastle have been won by the away side. Only four fixtures in the competition's history has seen five consecutive away victories - Leicester vs Manchester City (1994-2003), Blackburn vs Fulham (2003-2005), Newcastle vs Tottenham (2013-2015) and Crystal Palace vs Liverpool (2015-2017).
- Leicester have lost just one of their last nine home league games (W6 D2), though that defeat was against Newcastle in April.
Charlie Nicholas' prediction
Leicester are going well. James Maddison has grown in stature to be Leicester's go-to man. He was always brought off with the previous manager but Brendan Rodgers has embraced him. I was saying on Soccer Saturday last week that he has to make more of his gifts and what does he go and do? He scores the winner and has an influential game against Tottenham! He did some eye-catching things at Old Trafford but it was only done in small pockets. His potential is still growing, though.
Maddison is an injury doubt for this one but I can only see a Leicester win regardless. Newcastle dug in and were dogged in their draw against Brighton last week but Leicester will pass, probe and eventually score. Jamie Vardy needs the ball into gaps earlier if they are to break down a back three or five, and I think they will do that.
CHARLIE PREDICTS: 2-0 (5/1 with Sky Bet)
Fantasy Football tip
A revelation for Leicester. Caglar Soyuncu (£6.2m) has 36 Fantasy Football points thus far and is fourth in the value-for-money charts, earning 5.81 points per £M. Will he be your choice of captain for Sunday's clash?
