Leicester vs Newcastle Betting Tips
After six rounds, Leicester City are flying really high. They’re at the 3rd place in the Premier League table with 11 points. Although the season is still in its early stages, the Foxes look like a team that has the potential to be the dark horse. Sure, they don’t look like a team that could win the title, but they definitely look capable of finishing among the top six, especially knowing that Chelsea and Man City aren’t playing too well.
But, there’s still a long way to go till the end of the season. Leicester will have to keep on playing this well in order to stay so high on the table. That’s definitely their plan, which is why a win over Newcastle is in their books. The Magpies aren’t playing great at the moment, so winning all three points on Sunday seems like something the Foxes can achieve easily.
The worry is that Newcastle have been great when playing against Premier League heavyweights. This is the team that beat Tottenham in London a few rounds ago. Another team from the ‘big 6’ they played against was Liverpool. Although Newcastle lost 3:1, they didn’t embarrass themselves at the Anfield.
The biggest problem of Newcastle is their poor scoring yield. Six rounds have passed, but they have scored only four goals. If they want to get anything off this game, they will have to try to attack, rather than just relying on their defense. But, it won’t be easy considering that Leicester are famously tough at the back.
That said, everyone is expecting Newcastle to defend with all they got in this game. They did the same the last time they played at the King Power Stadium. The match was played in April and Leicester had the ball in their possession for 71% of the game. Still, Newcastle managed to win the game 1:0. Can they do the same this time as well? Probably not.

They’re without a win since they beat the Spurs in the 3rd round of the Premier League. Although they don’t have too many injured players, it seems some of their main players are struggling with fitness, which can be an additional problem for them. Another big problem is that they’re not very good when playing away from home. Last season, they lost 7 out of 19 away matches, while also playing draw on 8 occasions.
