On December 26, King Power Stadium (Leicester) will host the match of the 17th round of the English Premier League, in which Leicester will compete with Newcastle. The battle will start at 16:00 CET.

Leicester

The club started this season by shocking the fans in an unpleasant way. Having lost the advantage of 2 goals with Brentford, then Brendan Rodgers' wards lost 6 games in a row in the Premier League, collapsing to the very bottom of the table. In addition, they sold the leading players, Schmeichel and Fofana, without an equal replacement. Of course, this fact caused a kind of anxiety. In October, after a pause for the UEFA Nations League, the team was able to transform, and, as a result, started the autumn matches at the 13th place – that is not too good for the team which has recently taken part in the Champions League, but an obvious breakthrough in comparison to the state of things in September. Moreover, after the World Cup, “the Foxes” managed to get a 3-0 win, however, that has happened in the game with MK Dons in the EFL Cup.

Newcastle

The team may only recall the pessimism that was typical for last Christmas. It seemed that neither new investors from Saudi Arabia, nor the invitation of a new coach, Eddie Howe, to St. James Park could help the situation – “the Magpies” were helplessly moving to relegation. But in winter, the glorious club had changed their game and had been even able to rise above the equator of the standings by the end of the season. Nowadays, having a single defeat and 8 victories in 15 matches, “the Black-and-Whites” have demonstrated the aim to return to the Champions League. They confidently take the 3rd place, being ahead of a bunch of giants – only Manchester City and Arsenal have been better during summer and autumn matches. In December, the team is staying in a good shape: after a long pause, Newcastle beat Bournemouth – the game was done by an own goal in the middle of the second half. However, it was a fight for the EFL Cup.

The statistics of head-to-head matches
