Leicester City will host Newcastle United at the King Power as the Premier League returns to action on Monday. After a disappointing start to the season, Leicester were finally showing signs of getting their act together ahead of the World Cup break. The Foxes beat Everton 2-0 before winning by the same scoreline away at West Ham United in their last two games. The Foxes are now sitting 13th in the Premier League standings, four points above the relegation zone and they will look to from where they left off. They are coming off a 3-0 win over MK Dons in their EFL Cup round four fixture, and will hope to draw confidence from as they face a tough visit of Newcastle United. Newcastle have been on an upward trajectory, since the take over and this season they have been setting bars and are currently in the top four conversation. They solidified their top-four credentials with a well-deserved 1-0 win over Chelsea and will be looking to keep things going their way as they return to league action on Monday.
