Leicester City play host to Newcastle United on Saturday for their Premier League encounter at the King Power Stadium as they aim to stretch their winning streak.

The Foxes will be heading into this clash buoyed by their recent impressive form which has seen them win their last two top-flight games.

Claude Puel’s men will miss the service of their combative midfielder Wilfred Ndidi for this game due to suspension after he was sent off in their last outing against Brighton & Hove Albion.

However, they should still be able to clinch victory on their patch at the price of (1.95) with Bet9ja even without the Nigeria international, given that they have won all their previous five meetings with their visitors.

A chance for both sides cancelling each other out is available at the odds of (3.45) with the same betting firm.

Newcastle have started flourishing once again after enduring a difficult start to the Premier League. They currently occupy 12th spot on the log with 35 points from 31 games and will be aiming to continue the form.

However, their away record has not been impressive lately after failing to win any of their last five games outside their turf. As a result, they will have it all to do to surmount the odds of (4.05) having been tagged as underdogs for the tie.

The Foxes have avoided defeats in their previous four topflight duels and can be backed at (1.22) to continue with the unbeaten run.

Leicester have only managed to score 13 goals in their last nine outings while Rafael Benitez’s men have notched ten in the same numbers of games which signify that few goals will be expected here with the bookmakers offering (1.75) for less than two goals to come forth while both sides finding the back of the net is on offer at (1.82) with Bet9ja.
