Newcastle United are yet to impress their supporters after producing a very disappointing start to proceedings in the Premier League.
The Magpies are still yet to register their first win in the top-flight of English football this season, with relegation already becoming a worry at this early stage.
However, Newcastle United will welcome Leicester City to St James’ Park today in their next Premier League encounter. The Foxes head into today’s game off the back of a victory in the Carabao Cup and have made a strong start to their Premier League campaign, so the Magpies will have to be at their best.
Indeed, the Tyneside club can be a real handful on their day and if one of their star players turns up then it could be curtains for the opposition.
With that in mind, Newcastle will smash Leicester if this man shows up today…
The Brazilian, who is valued at £9 million (by Transfermarkt), has been a huge disappointment this season after such a promising first campaign at St James’ Park last time out under Rafa Benitez. Indeed, the 22-year-old hasn’t been able to contribute in the final third at all this season as he is still yet to register any assists or goals.
But, there’s no doubt that he can be one of the most dangerous players in the Premier League on his day, so Leicester City could be in for a smashing if he finally decides to show up later on today.
