Leicester City

Last updated: Sun 29 September 2019 08:07
In Brief

Confidence high after 3 wins in last 4 rounds followed by easy League Cup win on Tuesday. Maddison slight doubt, but practically at full strength.

Looking Back

Leicester backed up their league success vs. Tottenham from last weekend with easy 4:0 away win vs. Luton in League Cup on Tuesday. Many fringe players had chance to shine in that match.

With only defeat so far this season coming at Old Trafford Foxes are full of confidence. Leicester are also yet to concede more than 1 goal in a match this season.

Looking Ahead

Coach Rodgers expects his main playmaker Maddison to overcome knock on time and this will mean full squad as only long-term absentee is rarely used James.

Barnes has been in and out of starting line-up so far, but explosive winger impressive when involved and in coming weeks he is expected to be getting more and more playing time.

Points of Interest

Last 4 Premier League matches between sides saw away wins registered, Leicester lost last 2 at home, but won 2 in a row in Newcastle.

Newcastle United

Last updated: Sun 29 September 2019 08:09
In Brief

Only defeat in last 4 rounds was vs. leaders Liverpool. Still missing Ritchie and Lejeune. Sean Longstaff and Yedlin passed fit, but Shelvey ruled out.

Looking Back

Newcastle should consider themselves lucky to hold Brighton to 0:0 home draw, with Magpies second best for long periods in this match.

Solid defending helping for better results lately though, with only loss in last 4 rounds vs. leaders Liverpool away from home. Conceded just 1 goal in other 3 games during this stretch.

Looking Ahead

Coach Bruce using 5-4-1 shape lately and he is expected to stick to it, with not many changes to line-up either.

Sean Longstaff and Yedlin passed fitness tests and both will travel, but hamstring injury rules out Shelvey for several weeks. Still without the other 3 long-term absentees too.

Points of Interest

To seek revenge for League Cup home defeat on penalties from 3 weeks ago. Regular time of that match ended 1:1, with Newcastle leading for long.
