Team News

Leicester
Newcastle
  • James Maddison sustained an ankle injury in the 2-1 win over Tottenham and is a huge doubt ahead of Sunday's welcome of Newcastle.
  • Dennis Praet could therefore come into the XI from the side that beat Spurs, though Demarai Gray and Marc Albrighton are pushing for starts after solid performances at Luton on Tuesday.
  • Daniel Amartey and Matty James are long-term absentees.
  • Florian Lejeune and Dwight Gayle both miss out for Newcastle with respective knee and calf injuries.
  • Allan Saint-Maximin, DeAndre Yedlin, Matt Ritchie and Sean Longstaff will all be assessed ahead of the trip to Leicester.
  • Javier Manquillo could keep his spot at right-back, though Emil Krafth will hope to reclaim his place, while Andy Carroll is hopeful of a longer run out than his eight-minute cameo against Brighton.

Prediction

  • Confidence is high at the King Power Stadium after last week's 2-1 win over Tottenham and having secured their spot in the next round of the Carabao Cup, Brendan Rodgers will be looking to oversee a third successive competitive victory.
  • A 0-0 draw with Brighton last week means Newcastle have won just the once in all competitions this season and they have now failed to win in four. The Magpies, though, have won their last two trips to the King Power Stadium, but will face an uphill task to secure a positive result here.
  • Indeed, Leicester will be confident of making it four wins from their last five in all competitions in Sunday's clash.
