LEI vs NEW Dream11 MATCH PREVIEW:
Newcastle United are coming into this game after a wonderful weekend where they ripped the Mickey out of every possibility, winning 0-1 away at Tottenham Hotspur. The win was Toons’ first under Steve Bruce in three games and should give them confidence as they prepare to face Leicester in the next game.
Brendan Rodgers meanwhile revealed that he will be taking the Cup competitions seriously this season, unlike his predecessor Claude Puel.
LEI vs NEW Dream11 Grand League Picks for Captains & Vice-Captains:
Yoshinori Muto: The Japanese international has featured from the bench in the opening two league games and is in line to change it here.
The 27-year-old is more than just a back-up to Joelinton, is talented enough to make his own spot in this team.
Demarai Gray: He is incredibly talented, but his progress has been static in the last year or so, for some reasons unknown. But with Brendan Rodgers at the helm now, the 23-year-old may feel could regain his lost touch. Regardless, Gray is definitely a danger on any given day.
James Maddison: It’s been some time that we saw a natural and a technically gifted player in England’s midfield. The 22-year-old’s stock is rising with every game with bigger clubs circling around Leicester for his signature. If he plays, he can be the difference here.
