On Saturday Leicester City host Newcastle United at the King Power Stadium (Watch live, 7:45 a.m. ET on NBCSN and online via Live Extra) as the Foxes continued their battle against relegation.

After four-straight wins, Leicester succumbed to Chelsea on Wednesday but that didn’t make the headlines. The bizarre rant of Leicester boss Nigel Pearson towards a journalist did, but all of that will be forgotten if the Foxes can extend Newcastle’s run of defeats to eight on the spin.


If Leicester grabs a fifth win in six they will be just a point behind Newcastle and the Magpies’ relegation chances will increase exponentially.

In team news Leicester bring in James, Schlupp and Mahrez, while Newcastle make two changes as Paul Dummett and Moussa Sissoko come into the starting lineup.


Leicester City: Schmeichel, Wasilewski, Huth, Morgan, Albrighton, Cambiasso, James, Mahrez, Schlupp, Ulloa, Vardy. Subs: Schwarzer, De Laet, Konchesky, Drinkwater, Hammond, Wood, Kramaric

Newcastle United: Krul, Janmaat, Coloccini, Williamson, Dummett, Gutierrez, R.Taylor, Colback, Sissoko, Riviere, Perez. Subs: Woodman, Abeid, Anita, Ameobi, Cabella, de Jong, Armstrong

Sunderland will need to make it five straight over Tyne-Wear derby rivals Newcastle if they wish to pull themselves out of immediate danger at the bottom of the table.

The two heated foes will take to the Stadium of Light at 11am ET live on NBCSN or live online at NBC Sports Live Extra. Newcastle seems to be safe from the drop but interim manager John Carver has still seen his side to three straight losses, so both sides have trends to buck.

For Dick Advocaat’s Sunderland, Lee Cattermole is back from a two-match suspension, and Billy Jones makes a return to the back line after missing nearly two months with a hamstring injury. However, the Black Cats are still missing Wes Brown and Emmanuel Giaccherini due to injury, while Will Buckley surprisingly returns from a knee problem to make the bench.

Carver, meanwhile, has to deal with news that Massadio Haidara will no longer be available for the rest of the way due to knee surgery, and his team is severely thinned from injury and suspension. Cheick Tiote, Steven Taylor, Paul Dummett, and Siem de Jong are all out injured, while Papiss Cisse remains banned for spitting on an opponent and Fabricio Coloccini continues to serve his red card suspension.

Anything goes in a Tyne-Wear derby, and nothing sums that sentiment up than Sunderland’s current streaks. The Black Cats have won four straight in this fixture, while they’ve gone unbeaten in six, but come into today’s matchup winless in eight straight matches across all competitions.


Sunderland: Pantilimon; Jones, O’Shea, Vergini, van Aanholt; Larsson, Cattermole, Gomez; Fletcher, Wickham, Defoe.
Bench: Bridcutt, Johnson, Reveillere, Graham, Coates, Buckley, Mannone.

Newcastle: Krul, R.Taylor, Janmaat, Williamson, Colback, Sissoko, Gutierrez, Gouffran, Ameobi, Cabella, Perez.
Bench: Elliot, Anita, Abeid, Kemen, Obertan, Riviere, Armstrong.

Newcastle United 3-3 Burnley: Clarets come back thrice to snare point

Leave a comment

Newcastle’s first match in the post-Alan Pardew era was an up-and-down affair, as the Magpies lead 1-0, 2-1 and 3-2 en route to a 3-3 draw against plucky Burnley.

Third-string Magpies keeper Jak Alnwick was victimized for three goals, with George Boyd and Danny Ings complementing a Paul Dummett own goal for Burnley. The Clarets remain in the relegation zone.

Steven Taylor, Jack Colback and Moussa Sissoko scored for Newcastle, which remains in 10th place. Assistants John Carver and Steve Stone watched over the proceedings in place of Pardew.

Burnley was forced to use all its subs due to injury by the 37th minute.

After two corner kicks in the first several minutes, Emmanuel Riviere flashed a close-range header just over the net, and Burnley was firmly on the back foot.

And Newcastle went up after just 15 minutes when Taylor rose to head Jack Colback’s cross past Heaton.

A horrible Paul Dummett own goal put the game back on level terms, as the Newcastle defender went to head the ball to keeper Jak Alnwick and instead popped it over the netminder.

Then Colback bailed Dummett out by one-touching a layoff from Daryl Janmaat past Heaton with tremendous pace from 20 yards.

Burnley came very close to tying the score in the game’s 49th minute, putting a shot and rebound off either post in an unlucky bit of offense.

The Clarets controlled the first 20 minutes of the second half, and Ings used a quaint header to fool Dummett and beat an out-of-position Alnwick and tie the match at 2.

Despite looking shaky for most of the half, Sissoko put the hosts back up after a gorgeous play near the end line. Ayoze Perez started it with a cutback move to set up Adam Armstrong, and the 17-year-old side-footed a volley pass that Sissoko belted through traffic for the game’s fifth goal.

Boyd found the deserved equalizer in the 86th minute, victimizing an again out-of-position Alnwick.


Newcastle United: Alnwick; Janmaat, Coloccini, S.Taylor (Williamson, 61′), Dummett; Sissoko, Colback, Tiote, Gouffran (Haidara, 71′); Riviere (Armstrong, 57′), Perez

Goals: Taylor (15′), Colback (26′), Sissoko (78′)

Burnley: Heaton; Trippier, Shackell (Long, 17′; Reid, 37′), Keane, Mee; Arfield, Jones, Marney (Kightly, 32′), Boyd; Barnes, Ings

Goals: Dummett (o.g. 19′), Ings (66′), Boyd (86′)

VIDEO: Paul Dummett expertly heads over his keeper for own goal

Well this one’s about as goofy as it gets in the Premier League.

With Newcastle leading 1-0, defender Paul Dummett attempted to head a ball back to keeper Jak Alnwick.

Instead, the Geordie man popped the ball over his netminder for an own goal he won’t soon forget.

Fortunately for Dummett, Jack Colback restored Newcastle’s one-goal lead a few minutes later with a scorching shot from outside the 18.

It’s 2-1 at half.
