Tuesday’s clash on Tyneside should see the sides name strong starting line-ups, which makes it the perfect opportunity to look at some player specials. Below are four selections we’ve picked out after researching this clash, which can be backed as a 52/1 bet builder!
Newcastle vs Leicester Player Specials acca
Newcastle vs Leicester Player Specials tips
Bruno Guimaraes to score or assist
Guimaraes scored both goals in a 2-0 win for Newcastle when Leicester last visited this ground, while he set up a goal in a 3-0 win over the Foxes last month. Newcastle are hoping to get the Brazilian into more attacking positions and he scored at Sheffield Wednesday in the weekend cup tie. His quality helps to make up for a lightweight forward line led by Chris Wood, so back the midfielder to be involved in a goal.
Harvey Barnes 1+ shots on target
Barnes leads the Foxes for shots on target this season, having averaged 1.1 per game. There’s more focus on him at the minute with James Maddison out, meaning that he has to play a bigger role going forward for Leicester. He’s had a shot on target in 12 of his last 13 games, so back him to make an impact on Tuesday’s clash.
Caglar Soyuncu to be carded
Soyuncu hasn’t played a major role for Leicester this term, but he picked up three fouls against Stockport in this competition earlier this term. The Turkish defender is set to make a rare appearance in this clash and his rustiness could hurt the travelling Foxes. Back him to have a tough night as he;s great value to be shown a card.
Jamaal Lascelles to make 1+ fouls
Lascelles is set to return to the side having featured mainly in the cups for Newcastle this term. He has averaged 1.5 fouls per game in the Carabao Cup so far, so don’t expect him to stay out of trouble against Leicester. Back the defender to make at least one foul in this clash.
