THE OP­PO­SI­TION

The Chronicle - - Nufc -

NEW­CAS­TLE United can’t re­ally af­ford to drop any more points go­ing into the fes­tive pe­riod, but face a re­silient Le­ices­ter City out­fit at St James’ Park.

Toon play­ers looked down in the dumps as they trudged off the field at Stam­ford Bridge on Satur­day, yet they were al­ways go­ing to be up against it and it’s not about to get much eas­ier.

Le­ices­ter com­pleted the dou­ble dur­ing United’s last stay in the Premier League and, af­ter Claude Puel ral­lied the Foxes, the 2016 cham­pi­ons have lost just one game since he took charge.
