Team news
Tim Krul picked up an elbow injury whilst away with the Dutch national team, however should be fit to start on Saturday.

Daryl Janmaat is also a doubt, whilst Remy Cabella’s poor start to life at Newcastle could see him named on the bench.

Jamie Vardy looks set to return and partner Leonardo Ulloa in a 4-4-2 formation, meaning Dean Hammond could miss out.

Danny Drinkwater is likely to partner Esteban Cambiasso in the Newcastle midfield, with Ritchie da Laet again keeping Danny Simpson out of the side.

Newcastle: Krul; Janmaat, Williamson, Coloccini, Dummett; Tiote, Colback; Cabella, Sissoko, Obertan; Cisse
Leicester: Schmeichel; De Laet, Moore, Morgan, Konchesky; Mahrez, Cambiasso, Drinkwater, Schlupp; Vardy, Ulloa
