The Magpies stormed past Brighton & Hove Albion in a 4-1 victory in midweek, while Leicester’s survival hopes suffered another damaging blow in a 3-0 reverse to Liverpool.

Not since the 2002-03 season have Newcastle participated in the Champions League, and they remain third in the standings following results on Saturday. A point on Monday would seal a top-four finish thanks to Liverpool’s draw with Aston Villa.

Amid a nine-game run without a clean sheet in the Premier League, Newcastle can no longer proudly claim to be the stingiest defence in the division; their 32 goals conceded is bettered by Manchester City’s 31 ahead of the Citizens’ encounter with Chelsea.

However, Eddie Howe’s side enter Monday’s second-last Premier League match on the back of five wins from their last six at St James’ Park, and seven of their last nine final home games of the season have ended in victory – only Liverpool have spoiled the Toon party in 2019 and 2020 during that sequence, and Leicester can empathise in that regard.

Starting the second-last gameweek of the season two points adrift of safety in 19th place, Leicester can no longer catch Nottingham Forest thanks to their win over Arsenal, but Everton’s draw with Wolverhampton Wanderers means that the Foxes could move themselves out of the relegation zone with a win if Leeds United fail to beat West Ham United on Sunday.

A brief three-game unbeaten run between the end of April and beginning of May sparked some cautious optimism, but that has since been replaced by perennial pessimism for the Leicester faithful, who have witnessed their team concede eight goals across their last 180 minutes of football.

The Foxes have also put together an undesirable seven-game winless run on the road – although while scoring in each of their last five away games – and they have lost their last three encounters with Newcastle, most recently bowing out of the EFL Cup with a 2-0 quarter-final defeat at St James’ Park.

In the 94 previous meetings between these two teams across all competitions, Newcastle have claimed 38 victories while Leicester have won 39, and they have drawn in 17. Leicester have scored 150 goals and conceded 129 in the process.
