Leicester started the 2022/23 season in wretched form and quickly sunk to the bottom of the EPL table. However, just before the World Cup break the Foxes finally started to pick up some solid results with convincing wins over Wolves, Everton and West Ham. The East Midlands side comes into this fixture in 13th place, but having struggled to perform at home winning only twice at the King Power Stadium so far this season. 

Meanwhile, the World Cup break couldn’t have come at a worse time for a Newcastle side that was building real momentum. The Magpies won their last five games in a row, and have only lost once in 15 games this season. Currently third in the table, Newcastle are arguably the best-performing side in the league (relative to pre-season expectations) and at this point have their sights set on qualification for next season’s Champions League.

Both these teams will be eager to resume their form prior to the World Cup, and the sides have produced some particularly entertaining matches in recent seasons. In fact, the last three meetings of these two teams at King Power Stadium have produced a combined 15 goals. So the Leicester vs Newcastle live stream is likely to feature plenty of goalmouth action — you won’t want to miss it. 

Here's how they line up:

Leicester: Ward, Castagne, Amartey, Faes, Thomas, Soumare, Praet, Tielemans, Dewsbury-Hall, Barnes, Daka.

Newcastle: PopeTrippierSchar, Botman, BurnS. LongstaffBruno Guimaraes, Willock, Almiron, Wood, Joelinton.
