Amid a new flurry of takeover talk, Newcastle United will take on Leicester City this weekend at King Power Stadium. This is the second meeting between the two clubs as Newcastle fell to Leicester on penalties in the Carabao Cup last month.
In his press conference this morning, Steve Bruce has confirmed the fitness of Andy Carroll and Allan Saint-Maximin. Both players have not suffered a reaction after their returns against Brighton last week. Bruce also says that Sean Longstaff should be back after missing the last two weeks with an ankle injury.
The big surprise is that DeAndre Yedlin could be involved on Sunday. Steve Bruce said that Yedlin has been practicing for the past few weeks and is in consideration for a squad place at Leicester City.
We are hoping that the lads can put in a similar reaction to last weekend’s performance as when they defeated Spurs after a poor display at Norwich.
