Miguel Almiron To Score Anytime

Leicester City vs Newcastle Predictions

  • These sides have conceded just three goals in their last ten combined league matches.
  • Miguel Almiron has scored seven goals in his last eight Premier League appearances.

Foxes fortunes change for the better

After a truly dreadful start to the season, Leicester City’s faith in manager Brendan Rodgers paid off as the 49-year-old turned the Foxes’ fortunes around.

They won four of their final five Premier League games before the World Cup hiatus and pulled themselves out of the relegation zone and to within touching distance of the top-half of the table.

However, on Boxing Day they come up against the form side in the Premier League, with Newcastle looking to pick up where they left off after a phenomenal opening few months of the season.

Magpies eye up Champions League football

Eddie Howe has transformed the Magpies since taking charge just over a year ago, saving them from relegation last season and leading them to third place after 15 games in 2022/23.

They are just two points behind defending champions Manchester City and are unbeaten in ten league matches, winning each of their last five and conceding just twice, leaving them with the joint-best defensive record in the division.

Goals at a premium at King Power Stadium

Leicester have only conceded once in their last six games, too, so despite both teams’ good form I am expecting a low-scoring game here. Five of Leicester’s last six have featured fewer than three goals, so I’m backing under 2.5 goals.

Leicester’s only defeat in their recent resurgence came at the hands of Manchester City and with the Magpies in such excellent form another 1-0 defeat for the hosts looks a likely outcome, with Miguel Almiron my favourite to net the winner. The Paraguayan attacker has looked a new man under Howe and has scored seven goals in his last eight league appearances.
