The Magpies should be safe from relegation, as they’ve got a 10-point lead over 18th-place Burnley, but the team is heading for a finish in the bottom half of the Premier League for the fourth season in a row and its worst finish since the 2015-16 campaign, when Newcastle United was 18th.

Callum Wilson leads the team with six goals this season.

Newcastle is coming off of a 1-0 win over Wolverhampton in its most recent contest, with Chris Wood scoring the lone goal in the match. That victory ended a three-game losing streak for the team.

Predicted Newcastle starting XI: Krafth, Schär, Burn, Target, Guimarães, Shelvey, Joelinton, Fraser, Wood, Saint-Maximin; Dúbravka

Leicester’s chance at qualifying for European competition appears over, as the team is 11 points back of sixth-place West Ham. The team has participated in the last two Europa Leagues.

Jamie Vardy currently leads Leicester in goals with 10. The 35-year-old striker could finish with his fewest goals since the 2014-15 season with just nine matches left to be played.

Leicester won its most recent Premier League contest 2-1 over Crystal Palace, with Ademola Lookman and Kiernan Dewsbury-Hall both scoring goals. The team has won two of its last three matches.

Predicted Leicester starting XI: Justin, Amartey, Söyüncü, Thomas, Tielemans, Mendy, Maddison, Dewsbury-Hall, Lookman, Daka; Schmeichel.
