When we won on Saturday 1-0 at St. James’ Park to Huddersfield Town that was three home wins in a row without conceding a goal and two successive wins.
That was only the second time this season that we have had two wins in a row.
Back in late August, we beat West Ham 3-0 at home, Swansea 1-0 away and Stoke 2-1 at home to register three successive wins – and we were flying.
We can match that win streak on Saturday, but it will be a tough game at Leicester City.
Claude Puel – Leicester City manager
Newcastle are 12th in the league table with 35 points, and Leicester are 8th with 43 points – both having played 31 games.
It’s a good test for the lads and if we can get something out of this game – even a draw – it will be a decent result.
Rafa, of course, will be looking for another win.
