The Magpies snatched their first win of the season just in time as they beat Burnley 1-0 at the weekend, but now they have a difficult run of fixtures leading up to Christmas.
Newcastle travel to Leicester this weekend, before taking on Liverpool, Manchester City and Manchester United over eleven days.
The Tyneside club will head to the Midlands with full confidence given the Foxes’ form and successive victories may just give them that belief that they can take points off Jurgen Klopp, Pep Guardiola and Ralf Rangnick.
It is currently extremely tight at the bottom of the Premier League, with all three sides in the relegation zone currently on ten points - three from safety – however Burnley have a game in hand over Newcastle and Norwich.
