Newcastle v Leicester: Vardy and Mahrez can add to Magpie misery
Newcastle United welcome Leicester City to St James’s Park for this weekend’s Saturday evening kick-off.
The hosts head into the game on a poor run of form, having won just once from their last ten games.
Rafa Benitez’s men now find themselves sitting precariously above the drop zone.
In contrast Leicester have gone from strength to strength since the appointment of Claude Puel.
They’ve lost just once in their last ten matches – a respectable 2-0 defeat inflicted by Premier League leaders Manchester City.
But for those looking to maximise the value,the last time these two teams both scored against each other came way back in 2004.
To put things into perspective, Les Ferdinand, Alan Shearer and Steve Guppy were still playing. Leicester to win to nil this weekend is 4/1.
Having scored seven times already this season Jamie Vardy at 4/1 looks to be a worthy favourite in the first goalscorer market.
He has just the one goal to his name so far this season.
However, he is likely to play just behind the striker, and his movement between the defensive lines could have potential to cause one or two problems for the Foxes’ back four.
