Leicester City vs Newcastle Preview, Latest H2H Record and Betting Tips: Premier League 21/22, Gameweek 16
The Premier League weekend presents us with an intriguing contest between two teams who have had disappointing campaigns so far, Brendan Rodger’s Leicester and Eddie Howe’s Newcastle. We at Alley Sport bring you the Leicester City vs Newcastle Preview, Latest H2H Record and Betting Tips as we analyse this Premier League 21/22, Gameweek 16 fixture, all for you!
Leicester City vs Newcastle Preview
After two successive seasons fighting it out with the big guns for Champions League spots, much was expected from Leicester this time around, with big-money spent in the transfer market as well. However, things haven’t gone to plan for Brendan Rodgers’ men, as they sit in a disappointing 11th place in the Premier League.
Leicester have found it hard to win fixtures they are expected to and have been uncharacteristically easy to play against, showing a severe lack of steel in the midfield, something they have been synonymous with in recent times. Having won just one fixture against last season’s top six, Leicester need to get their season back on track pretty soon and a fixture against a team who just managed their first win of the campaign last week presents a golden opportunity.
Newcastle are in a terrible position in the League at the moment and they need wins urgently to catch up with the teams above them. The big incentive for Howe’s team is that they will be just one point off 17th if they win their game against Leicester. That could be humongous boost, but on the flip side, a loss could push them to the bottom of the table , six points away from safety and make survival look ever more unlikely.

Last season too was a pretty even contest between these two, with Leicester notching up a comfortable 2-1 victory at St. James’ Park. Newcastle bounced back with a surprise 4-2 win at the King Power and so it remains to be seen how this game ends this time around.

Leicester City vs Newcastle United Betting Tips
Here is a compilation of the fixture’s betting tips. Betting sites around the country, including OddsChecker, a website that compiles Odds data from the top betting sites in the United Kingdom, place Leicester as the favourites at 10/13 for this game, with a win for Newcastle at 15/4. A draw, meanwhile, is at 63/20.
Jamie Vardy is, as always, placed as the most likely first goal-scorer by the same website at 4/1, followed surprisingly by Patson Daka at 9/1 and Kelechi Iheanacho at 5/1. Not a surprise considering Newcastle’s poor form away from home.
A cracking 4-3 at full-time in favour of Brendan Rodgers’ Leicester is the most likely scoreline as per the Odds, followed by a 1-0 home win. The safest bet here would, in our opinion, be on a Leicester win with a Jamie Vardy goal to start off.
