3pm Saturday
Newcastle have struggled to pick up points during a devilishly difficult start to the Premier League season and will be under pressure to go on the offensive against Leicester at St James' Park.

The Magpies fans have had their patience tested by some cautious tactics and will want their team to show a different side, but a change of approach could play into the hands of the Foxes.

Claude Puel's team have pace to burn on the counter-attack and are overpriced to increase the Tynesiders' troubles.

Recommendation
Leicester
1pt 2-1 general
