Our prediction for this Premier League match:
Leicester City will be looking to build on back-to-back wins over Tottenham Hotspur and Burnley when they square off against Newcastle United at St. James’ Park on Matchday 16. The Foxes are eyeing their third consecutive win in the Premier League and a victory over Newcastle would see them retain their spot in the top half of the standings. Claude Puel is doing a good job with the King Power Stadium outfit, but beating the Magpies on the road is easier said than done. Rafa Benitez’s men suffered a dip in form and they are on a six-game winless run in the national championship ahead of Saturday’s football match against Leicester. Anyhow, the hosts are likely to leave their hearts on the field and we predict that they are going to grab something from the match, which could be crucial for the relegation-threatened club in their battle for survival.
