Newcastle had a great start to 2022 under Eddie Howe to claw their way out of relegation trouble.

The Magpies did hit a snag in March, however, as they lost three games in a row.

They bounced back last week by beating Wolves 1-0 at home and they will be looking to ensure they can string a few wins together again.

Leicester, meanwhile, have had a tough schedule as they continue to compete in Europe, but they have dealt with the pressure well.

Brendan Rodgers' team are now five games in a row without defeat and will hope to maintain that momentum when they meet Newcastle.
