NEW vs LEI Dream11: Leicester City face Newcastle United at St James’ Park on Sunday night looking to extend their unbeaten record in the Premier League to four matches. A run of one win in their last four has halted Leicester’s progress somewhat and they have seen Man Utd pass them in the table. They need to bounce back with a win in order to avoid dropping off, with the top half of the table looking very tight. Newcastle showed resilience and fight following their 0-0 draw against reigning champions Liverpool but it will be tough to put in back-to-back performances together of this nature against another top side.
