We were a little bit worried last Saturday when Sky Sports pundit Paul Merson predicted that we would beat Crystal Palace at home,
We did everything but score and they had one shot on target, and they won the game 1-0 via a penalty.
That was a real shocker and broke our streak of five home wins in a row – we were getting all our points at home over the last few months.
Paul Merson – Newcastle to lose 2-0
The Sky Sports pundit is back to predicting Newcastle will lose again, and he thinks it will be 2-0 tonight at the King Power Stadium.
Here’s what Merson has said about the game on Sky Sports:
“In the games Leicester have played of late, teams have had a go at them.”
“But I think Newcastle will sit back and make it difficult and that’ll give them a different proposition.”
“Huddersfield went for it and Bournemouth were the same, but Newcastle will sit back and try to nick a point.”
“So they’ll have to be patient.” “But I’m going to go for Leicester to win.”
“Under Brendan Rodgers, the players look confident and they’re playing very well.”
“I think they’re a dangerous team at the moment.”
Prediction – Leicester 2 Newcastle 0.
Our fans are not too confident either but another defeat would be our third defeat in four games and the mood on Tyneside would sour a little bit more.
