Sunday's fixture will be the 130th meeting between Newcastle United and Leicester City, with the Magpies looking to extend their unbeaten home league run in 2022. Liverpool are the only other side yet to lose at home in the top flight this year; United are looking to win five successive home games for the first time since March 2019.

Eddie Howe hopes to have Joe Willock back after a knee complaint, while the injury which forced Ryan Fraser off against Wolves was only a "small problem" according to the United head coach. Chris Wood will come up against one of his former clubs.

The Foxes have been somewhat inconsistent in the league this term but reached the Europa Conference League semi-finals with an impressive away victory against PSV on Thursday night. Newcastle's Paraguayan playmaker Miguel Almirón spoke to NUFC TV ahead of the game.
