Team News

Newcastle
Leicester
  • Allan Saint-Maximin suffered a hamstring injury in Newcastle's 1-0 win over Tottenham and will not feature here.
  • Jamaal Lascelles also picked up a muscle injury at the weekend and is unlikely to be risked here.
  • DeAndre Yedlin and Florian Lejeune will also be missing for Steve Brue's side on Wednesday. Andy Carroll isn't expected to be fit in time, while Dwight Gayle is a doubt.
  • Ben Chilwell has missed Leicester's last two games and is unlikely to be risked by Brendan Rodgers here. Christian Fuchs will continue in the team.
  • James Justin could make his Leicester debut on Wednesday, starting on the opposite side of defence to Fuchs.
  • Demarai Gray has been challenged to improve in training before being trusted to start and he will hope to at least make the matchday squad against Newcastle.

Prediction

  • Newcastle picked up their first win of the season with a shock 1-0 victory away to Tottenham at the weekend.
  • Leicester are unbeaten in the Premier League this season (W1, D2).
  • Leicester have won on their last three trips to Newcastle and are favourites heading into Wednesday's cup match.
