Newcastle has won four out of their last five meetings with Leicester this season and has a clear edge in talent, with the Magpies scoring 19 more goals than Leicester. The Magpies have won 11-5-2 at St James’ Park this season and need to win in front of their fans to secure a place in the Champions League.
