Leicester City v Newcastle United: Kick-off time, TV details and the latest injury news as Eddie Howe searches for back-to-back victories

Newcastle United are looking to make it back-to-back victories when they face Leicester City this weekend.

Eddie Howe’s side travel to the King Power Stadium aiming to build on their victory over Burnley last weekend.

Newcastle put in arguably their best performance of the season in May when they last travelled to Leicester and many will hope for a repeat of that night’s display.

A Callum Wilson double, supported by goals from Paul Dummett and Joe Willock helped Steve Bruce’s side defeat the Foxes 4-2 and secure Premier League survival for another season.

Ciaran Clark is back after serving a one game suspension against Burnley whilst Callum Wilson remains just one booking away from triggering an automatic one game ban.
