Newcastle United team news: Fans react as Eddie Howe makes one change to face Leicester City

Eddie Howe has confirmed his Newcastle United line-up to face Leicester City in the Premier League at St James’s Park on Easter Sunday.

The Magpies are looking to secure a fifth straight home win but they face a Foxes side who they haven’t beaten at St James’s since 2014.

And Howe has made one change from last Friday’s 1-0 win over Wolverhampton Wanderers.
