The Foxes beat Tottenham 2-1 at the King Power last weekend and then thrashed Luton 4-0 in a midweek EFL Cup tie. They are up to third in the table and they might fancy their chances of seizing a Champions League place this season. Newcastle are hovering precariously above the drop zone after taking just one point from their last three games.</p><h2>Team News</h2><p>Leicester look really dangerous going forwards this season with James Maddison and Youri Tielemans pulling the strings behind the dynamic Jamie Vardy. They have not missed Harry Maguire too badly at the back, as Jonny Evans has been playing well and Wilfred Ndidi is great at shielding the defence. Brendan Rodgers made a number of changes for the EFL Cup clash against Luton, but the likes of Kasper Schmeichel, Ben Chilwell, Caglar Soyoncu and Maddison will expect to return to the starting 11 for this game.</p><p><a href="http://a.oddsmarket.com/record/v?c=160&amp;a=9feaaf7a-d7a2-4185-974a-81ad171951df&amp;f=3" target="_blank"><img alt src="https://imstore.bet365affiliates.com/AffiliateCreativeBanners/Sports/General/Bet%20Builder/en-GB/UK/STD/728x90_2.jpeg" style="width:100%" /></a></p><p>Newcastle play with a back five and they have looked relatively solid defensively this season. However, they have only managed to score four goals in six games, and that sort of form can get a team relegated. Sean Longstaff is expected to be fit enough to return for the trip to Leicester, and he could partner Isaac Hayden in midfield. They are both defensive minded midfielders, so there would be a great deal of pressure on Miguel Almiron and Christian Atsu to get forward and support the perennially isolated Joelinton.</p><h2>Betting Analysis</h2><p>The Foxes are generally priced at 1.53 to win this game and that looks like a good shout for an accumulator. Newcastle pulled off a shock away win at Tottenham earlier this season, but they have lost their other two road trips. Leicester are strong at home, where they have taken seven points from a possible nine despite hosting tricky teams in Tottenham, Bournemouth and Wolves. They really should get the job done in this game.</p><p><strong>Tip: <a href="https://a.oddsmarket.com/record/v?c=150&amp;a=3e56a0bf-7bdf-4fe1-b9a6-d22c7cc3dd2c&amp;f=1" rel="nofollow" target="_blank" title="Betway">Leicester to win and under 4.5 goals at 1.75 (3/4) with Betway</a></strong></p></div></div></div></div></div></div>
