Preview – Football: Leicester City v Newcastle United

Leicester City Newcastle United

For the first Premier League fixture of the weekend, it is the away team that need the points more than the home side.

Seventh-place Leicester are now 14 points behind the team directly above them, Man United, so it seems that any chance of playing in Europe next season is now gone. Newcastle meanwhile are still currently in a relegation battle. However, as they are seven points above the relegation zone, a win tonight should be enough to secure them a spot in the top flight.

Leicester City v Newcastle United is on Sky Main Event and Sky Premier League at 19.00 (kick-off 20.00).
