Newcastle to Sign-Off in Style

Liverpool’s failure to beat Aston Villa on Saturday means the Toon Army can dust off their passports for some Champions League trips next season.

A three point lead with a superior goal advantage and tonight’s game in hand means the Magpies are all but guaranteed a top four finish and with it, direct entry to the top table of European football.

Things couldn’t be any more different for opponents Leicester City who’s fans could be reminding themselves of the whereabouts of the likes of Rotherham, Plymouth and Ipswich ahead of next season.

The Foxes stand on the precipice of relegation, three points from safety with two games to play. It could all come down to a last day showdown with West Ham at the King Power next week but Dean Smith could really do with taking in something at St James’ Park tonight.

There’s nothing to suggest that they will however, unless you think that Newcastle might ease off with their job for the season all but done. It’s more likely that Eddie Howe will send his team out to sign-off in style. They’re 4/11 to win tonight and it’s hard to argue against that.

The Magpies’ success has been built on a solid defensive display this season. Only champions Manchester City have conceded fewer goals and the win to nil looks well priced at 13/8 – but it does come with the caveat that they’ve failed to keep a clean sheet in nine Premier League matches, have recorded just one shutout in 16 and that Leicester have scored in four of their last five outings, scoring nine goals.

Newcastle haven’t been in shy in front of goals either. They hit 13 in the last four on Tyneside, only failing to score against Arsenal, they’ve hit four vs Brighton, three vs Southampton and six vs Spurs. They’re 11/10 to hit three or more again this evening.
