Leicester City vs Newcastle United Live Match

Two of the most in-form sides before the Premier League’s mid-season break meet at the King Power Stadium on Boxing Day, when Leicester City host Newcastle United.

Both sides booked their place in the EFL Cup quarter-finals on their return to competitive action in midweek.

Leicester City players celebrate James Maddison's goal against West Ham United on November 12, 2022

After a dreadful start and yet another defeat away at Bournemouth, it looked as if Brendan Rodgers‘s days were numbered at Leicester in early October.

However, within just a month they were comfortably off the bottom of the standings and in mid-table after taking 13 points from six matches following defeat at the Vitality Stadium.

Despite suffering 6-2 and 5-2 defeats during their torrid start, they have now stabilised their goal difference too, by scoring more goals than any side outside the current top six.

Impressive 4-0 wins over Nottingham Forest and Wolverhampton Wanderers were a major factor in that, as was the form of James Maddison, who has contributed to 11 goals in the Premier League already this season – only four players have contributed to more.

Making light work of MK Dons in the cup in midweek suggests that Leicester may be able to pick up where they left off too.

While Leicester’s recovery has been impressive, it is arguable that no team in Europe have overachieved as much as Newcastle this season.

The Magpies are a staggering 20 points better off than they were at this stage last season as they sit in third, just two points behind Manchester City and four clear of Manchester United, the closest side challenging them for a top four spot.

Five straight league wins ensured their spot in the Champions League positions in time for the World Cup break, as they are unbeaten in all competitions since a late defeat at Anfield in August – their only loss of the season so far.
