We are a little over a fortnight away from the conclusion of the 2022/23 Premier League season, and clubs are fighting for their lives at opposition ends of the table. Newcastle remain locked in a three-way battle for a top-four finish, while Leicester are scrambling near the foot of the table to stay in the division.

The expectation on Tyneside has been that they will eventually find their way to the Champions League following their club-defining takeover by a Saudi-led consortium in autumn of last season, but few would probably have expected them to dismantle the established hegemony as soon as they appear to be doing so.

Eddie Howe is working wonders to speed run Newcastle’s ascent to the big time, and they won’t want to slip up now — especially at the final hurdle. Leicester have achieved something that Newcastle will be hoping to mimic in the long run: winning the Premier League — but, that triumph in 2015/16 now seems like an age ago given their current predicament.

The Foxes are fighting for their lives at the wrong end of the table and desperately need points if they are going to stay in the division. Dean Smith could have done with facing a team already in ‘beach mode’, but instead he needs to galvanise his squad for a huge clash against a Newcastle side going for the jugular late on.

Newcastle vs Leicester match stats

Despite Leicester’s woe this campaign, they have racked up some very impressive metrics. The East Midlands club have produced 28 first-half goals this term, a number comparable with Newcastle, and the fifth-most of any club. That opening 45-minute tally outranks the likes of Tottenham (22) and Manchester United (21), while it doubles Chelsea’s output (14). So expect at busy start on Tyneside.

A month later his side kept another clean sheet to dump them out of the EFL Cup quarter-finals en route to their Wembley showdown with Man Utd in February.
