Leicester City will continue their push for European qualification as they host Newcastle United on Friday night.
Currently Leicester sit seventh in the table and will be looking to keep the pressure on Wolves and Watford who both have a game in hand.
City were impressive last weekend on their trip to Huddersfield. Brendan Rodgers’ men dominated the game as they came away with a 4-1 win.
A win on Friday would make it five on the bounce for Leicester, which would continue the fine form they’ve found under their new manager. Their opponents meanwhile come in to the game without a win three.
James Maddison was Leicester’s Man of the Match last time out, Jamie Vardy and Youri Tielemans also added to their excellent string of performances under Rodgers.
Leicester were without both Harry Maguire and Jonny Evans against Huddersfield.
Maguire was given the week off after the birth of his first child and Evans picked up a minor hip injury prior to kick-off. Rodgers confirmed both players are available for selection against Newcastle.
Here is how we think Leicester will line up:
GK: Kasper Schmeichel
Leicester’s ever-present keeper made a couple of good stops last week and should keep his spot in goal against Newcastle.
RB: Ricardo Pereira
Ricardo had another excellent game against Huddersfield. Setting up Vardy nicely for his first goal and a solid performance at the back throughout.
CB: Jonny Evans
Rodgers confirmed Evans is fit and available for Friday night and should reclaim his place in the side, but Wes Morgan has played well the last couple of weeks and could stay in the team should Rodgers not want to risk Evans.
CB: Harry Maguire
Maguire is also back in contention this week, it could be his first start for Leicester in almost a month since his sending off against Burnley in mid-March.
LB: Ben Chilwell
Chilwell put in another good performance last week and should be certain to keep his place at left-back for the visit of Newcastle.
CDM: Wilfred Ndidi
Ndidi’s displays have gone up a level since the arrival of Youri Tielemans. The work he does in front of the Leicester defense is a vital part of their success.
CM: Youri Tielemans
The goal last week means Tielemans has contributed to a goal in each of Leicester’s last six matches. The creativity he adds to the side has been excellent to watch and takes some of the weight off of James Maddison’s shoulders.
CM: James Maddison
Maddison has enjoyed a great debut season in the Premier League. He has proven to be one of the top creators in the top-flight and has added a threat to set-pieces Leicester haven’t had in a long time.
RW: Demarai Gray
Gray missed two excellent chances to score against Huddersfield. Finishing is something that he needs to work on, but until Marc Albrighton is ready to return, Gray lacks any other competition for a start on the right side.
ST: Jamie Vardy
Vardy has eight goals in his last eight Premier League matches. His form under Rodgers has been terrific and is certain to start again this week.
LW: Harvey Barnes
Barnes had a decent game last week and created a couple of good chances for his team before being substituted. He has out performed Gray since his recall from loan in January.
