Newcastle had a successful start to the second half of the season, defeating Leicester City 3-0 away. This was followed by a goal drought of two draws with Leeds and Arsenal. However, the Magpies had several good chances in both games. And the crisis became quite evident in the cup meeting against Sheffield Wednesday, who lost 1-2 and were relegated. Eddie Howe's side owned the ball 76% of the game time and took 22 shots on goal.
Leicester are winless since the World Cup break. First, they lost to Newcastle (0-3). Then there was the defeat to Liverpool (1-2). Then, Foxes centre-back Wout Faes sealed the brace with an own-goal. After that, they lost at home to Fulham (0-1). But unlike the forty, Leicester advanced to the next round of the FA Cup, beating League Two's worst team, Gillingham, away with a minimum score of 1-0. Like Newcastle, Leicester have also needed help with performance in recent games. They have only 2 goals scored and 6 conceded.

Both teams are in a bit of a crisis due to the lack of goals. And Newcastle still have a battle for a place in the top 4. Their position has been shaken due to two draws in the EPL, and they are losing to United on points lost. The Magpies are trailing Tottenham by two points. Therefore, Leicester will be more motivated and closer to victory. However, the game is likely to be a close one.
