LEICESTER CITY host Newcastle United on Friday with both sides almost achieving their recent stated aims of Champions League football and avoiding relegation, but neither quite there yet.
Brendan Rodgers’ side are seven points clear of fifth-place Spurs in the battle for a Champions League spot and two ahead of Chelsea in fourth. Newcastle slipped to fourth bottom, but have a nine-point gap on Fulham with four games.
Both sides produced really disappointing displays in their previous games. The Foxes could only draw at Southampton despite having a one-man advantage for 80 minutes and even then they had to rescue the point after going a goal behind.
And Newcastle produced their worst display for months when they simply never turned up against an Arsenal side who could have been forgiven for prioritising their Europa League clash with Villarreal instead.
Crucially, for Leicester, this is their last so-called easier game in a torrid run-in. They have to face Manchester United, Chelsea and Spurs in the league and Chelsea in the FA Cup Final before the end of the season.
Leicester must view this as an absolute banker with their really hard run-in and they don’t want to offer their challengers any encouragement. Newcastle played like a team who know they are safe at the weekend, but the gap could be cut to six points if they lose to Leicester and Fulham beat Burnley this week.
