Leicester City v Newcastle United Preview, Premiership, Monday 14th March 2016

Leicester City are having a season to remember at the moment and are on course to cause one of the biggest ever shocks in football history ! The online bookmakers were offering up ridiculous odds of 5000/1 for Leicester City to win this season’s Premiership title and with just 9 matches left to play including this game on Monday night, the bookmakers are already starting to quake in their boots.

Leicester have played some amazing football and is no surprise to see them leading the way at the top of Premiership league table, this game on Monday night will certainly be a sell out and both the fans and players will be confident of adding another valuable 3pts to their tally.

Newcastle United have had a season to forget and it came as no real shock to see Steve McClaren sacked midweek as once again Mr Umbrella man has failed to deliver on his promises. Rafa Benitez has came in to take over and try to guide Newcastle United out of the relegation places, but he faces a very difficult task in his first game in charge having to go up against a vibrant and confident Leicester City side.

Leicester City Team News:

The hosts have almost a full squad available for this game with their only casualty being midfielder Matthew James who is unavailable due to lack of match fitness. James Vardy will lead the attack up front with support behind being provided by Albrighton, Drinkwater, Mahrez and Kante.

Newcastle United Team News:

The visitors have a number of casualties for this match and will be without the services of Coloccini, Mbemba, Dummett, Haidara, Obertan and Toney. Townsend, Gouffran and Cisse are all suffering from minor knocks and will under take a late fitness test to see if they can be involved. Mitrovic will lead the attack up front with support in behind being provided by de Jong, Tiote, Sissoko and Wijnaldum.

Our head to head statistics table below shows the last five matches played between the two clubs and as we can see Leicester with a clear advantage heading into this game having won three times with Newcastle United having won one and the remaining game having finished all square.

118 of those Goals have been scored in the previous 40 matches played at the King Power Stadium and this generates an average goals per game statistics of 2.95.

The statistics data above seem to suggest that this game should see between 2 or 3 Goals scored on Monday night and betting markets such as Total Match Goals 2 or 3 and Over 2.5 Goals both look good betting options for this match.

The Draw has happened once in the previous five matches played between the two clubs and looking at the recent form of both clubs a draw does look an unlikely outome, but for those who think Newcastle United can come away from this game with a point, you can get a current best price of 16/5 with Bet365 – Receive £200 Matched Bonus Bets when Registering a New Account.

Newcastle United do have a new manager, but their form this season has not been great and for me they really do need a miracle to avoid relegation.

Leicester City v Newcastle United Match Predictions, Tips & First Goal Scorer Bets.

Leicester City are on the verge of making football history and with home advantage and a packed out King Power Stadium fully behind them along with millions of neutral fans up and down the country their fate is entirely in their own hands as if they manage to win the remaining 9 matches of the season, they will become Premiership Champions !

Newcastle United are probably counting down the days until the season comes to and end as it really has been a painful 8 months for their fans and with their squad rife with injuries to key players it does seem very unlikely that they will be able to cope with Leicester City on Monday night.

Onto some predictions then and my Banker Free Tip for this match is going to be for Leicester City to Win as with players like Vardy and Mahrez having excellent season’s so far, I just think the Leicester City attack will prove too strong for the feeble Newcastle United defence to handle the longer this game goes on.

My First Goalscorer Free Tip will be Leicester City striker Jamie Vardy to open up the scoring for his side as he is the current top goalscorer in the premiership with 19 goals and looks destined to add to his tally come Monday night.
