Leicester have climbed out of the relegation zone and are looking forward and upwards as this fixture will be a key in that progress. A home game vs. Newcastle has in the past years been a must win, but this time a draw at home looks as a good result against an opponent that looks stronger and stronger.

Leicester will tomorrow on Boxing Day at 15.00 be at their best, and it looks better and better with that MK Dons clash showing a bit of promise, again in the quarter finals of the Carabao Cup, and another fixture vs. Newcastle, but this time Leicester is at home and we do look forward to have Premier League back.

The transfer window will soon open, and the next few weeks will be of great importance on how this season will turn out. Newcastle do have a few challenges as injuries have hit them this weekend.

Leicester could have players back from injuries as Brendan Rodgers explains the situation before this crucial home fixture in his recent press-conference.

Did You Know? Newcastle United’s official club photographer, Gladstone Adam, came up with the idea of windscreen wipers. He had his lightbulb moment while driving home in the snow.
