Brendan Rogers lost his first game in charge of the Foxes with a 2-0 reverse at Watford. But since then, he has galvanised his new team with four straight wins.

Star striker Jamie Vardy has six in five games and is on fire.Detractors might point to the fact that Leicester have beaten the three of the bottom four in that run, but confidence is sky high.

Visitors Newcastle have lost their last two but have done enough to be safe. With that in mind you might hope Raffa Benitez takes a less cautious approach than recent away games.

Interestingly, back in April 18, Newcastle won this fixture 2-1 and the Foxes have lost as many home games (7) as they have won.

The prices probably over estimated the difference between the two sides, but the Foxes won at Newcastle 2-0 and if confidence is the difference between the teams they should make it five on the spin.

Vardy though, at 4/1 looks a decent shout to net first given he is on such a good run and Newcastle find keeping a clean sheet very hard.
