Newcastle United finally got their first win in the English Premier League in the last round so they are inspired ahead of their visit to Leicester City on Sunday.

Callum Wilson's goal in the first half was enough to lead the Magpies to a 1-0 win over Burnley at St James' Park last Saturday.

As a result, they leapfrogged Norwich City in 19th place in the league with 10 points from 15 games.

Paul Dummett will not play for the Magpies while Ryan Fraser and Fabian Schar are expected to return. Newcastle boss Eddie Howe will also be able to use Ciaran Clark following his suspension.

Leicester suffered a 2-1 loss to Aston Villa in their last Premier League game. Harvey Barnes gave the Foxes an early advantage but they surrendered two goals to Ezri Konsa.

Leicester are coming off a 3-2 loss to Napoli in the Europa League last Thursday. Goals from Jonny Evans and Kiernan Dewsbury-Hall weren't enough for the Foxes, who failed to reach the last 16 and will continue their journey in the Europa Conference League.

Many Leicester players tested positive for Covid-19 and the long list includes Jannik Vestergaard, Ayoze Perez, Ademola Lookman, Kelechi Iheanacho, Daniel Amartey, Vontae Daley-Campbell and Filip Benkovic. Wesley Fofana, Ricardo Barbosa Pereira and James Justin will also not feature due to injuries.

Newcastle beat Leicester 4-2 at King Power Stadium in the last meeting between the two sides last May.

Verdict

Despite Leicester City's Covid-19 woes, we expect them to win against Newcastle.
