Newcastle’s victory over Wolves was hard-earned but it was a deserved win for the Magpies.

The three-points increased the gap to the bottom three to ten points and although they haven’t yet reached the magical 40-point mark just yet, safety is very much in their sights.

A win at home against Leicester would be United’s first triumph over the Foxes at St James’s Park since 2014 and would be a huge step towards sealing their Premier League status.

The win against Wolves has thrown up a few selection headaches for Howe, especially following Ryan Fraser limping off midway through the first-half.

Joe Willock also missed their last outing through injury - but will he be fit enough to return to the starting XI?

Here, we take a look at the Newcastle United side that Howe could select to face Leicester:
