Toon in training: Fired up for the Foxes
Newcastle United head to Leicester City on Friday night (8pm kick-off), looking for a response after their five-game winning streak at home came to an end on Saturday.
Rafa Benítez’s side’s 1-0 defeat to Crystal Palace at St. James’ Park at the weekend halted that fine run, but they have an opportunity to get back to winning ways – and potentially move up to 13th in the Premier League table – at the King Power Stadium.
With Friday’s fixture coming into focus, manager Benítez and his squad have been busy on training pitch as preparations for the clash with the Foxes continue.
