Newcastle team news

Midfielder Joe Willock's season is over because of a hamstring injury, while Joelinton will also face a late fitness test because of a knock which is not currently thought to be serious enough to impact his involvement here.

Sean Longstaff and Jacob Murphy both remain out - the former's absence proving particularly problematic in a light midfield.

Kelechi Iheanacho is expected to be involved in some capacity after overcoming a groin issue but this game could come too soon for Kiernan Dewsbury-Hall, who is pushing to shake off a foot injury.

Newcastle vs Leicester score prediction

Leicester have to go for this one. It's a tough ask, but in their current predicament, anything less than three points could prove fatal.

Unfortunately for Leicester, they simply do not look capable of getting such a miraculous result here and Newcastle will be confident of picking up the point they need to book their place in next season's Champions League.

There may be a lot of emotion, but that won't cut it for Leicester.

Prediction: Newcastle 4-1 Leicester
