Leicester City v Newcastle United
Leicester City welcome Newcastle United to the King Power Stadium on Friday evening as they look to consolidate seventh in the table.
The Foxes have enjoyed a great start to the Brendan Rodgers era, as the Northern Irishman has guided them to four consecutive wins, scoring at least two goals in all four games.
Leicester will be hoping to be the 'best of the rest' outside the top six in the Premier League this season as they try and go for seventh place and qualify for the Europa League.
It is realistically going to be one from four with Wolves, Everton, and Watford also all in contention for that spot.
However, the Foxes appear to have stolen a march on their rivals and will enter this match on the back of five wins out of six against Newcastle.
Jamie Vardy has been in red hot form since former Celtic and Liverpool boss Rodgers took charge - bagging six goals in five matches - and he's expected to shake off a slight groin injury to play, while Harry Maguire is also likely to be restored to the line-up after becoming a father last week.
Newcastle enter this game still in some danger of being dragged into a relegation battle, though their home form probably means that is an unlikely prospect.
Five wins from their last six at St James' Park has given them a great chance of survival, though their away form continues to bedevil them - they haven’t won on their travels since December.
The Magpies will have to make do without defender Florian Lejeune as he has been ruled out for the rest of the season with a knee injury, though Mo Diame could recover from a muscle strain to play.
