Brendan Rodgers at King Power stadium ahead of Newcastle match photo

Leicester City to host Newcastle United on Sunday afternoon at King Power having plunged into the bottom half of the Premier League standings, with one win in their last six matches.

Meanwhile, Newcastle shifted to within three points of protection last weekend after edging out Burnley, their first victory of the season and since the appointment of Eddie Howe.

Leicester after a good run last season, occupying a place in the bottom half of the table and an early exit from the Europa League looked highly unlikely for a team on Leicester's upward trajectory.

However, the Foxes have strived for consistency since the onset of the campaign, and Brendan Rodgers encounters combat to get his crew back on track during the winter period.

Thursday's 3-2 defeat at Napoli has left Leicester with Europa Conference League football in February, a tournament that Rodgers does not hold in high concern based on his statements on Thursday.
