Puel wary of Toon
Leicester manager Claude Puel is wary of the threat Newcastle pose despite the Magpies' recent poor run of results.
After making a solid start on their return to the Premier League, Rafa Benitez's team head into today's home game with the Foxes on a six-match winless streak consisting of five defeats - a run that has seen them slip to 15th in the table.
In contrast, Leicester travel to St James' Park looking for a third straight victory having taken 11 points from the six games since Puel took over.
Despite the two team's differing fortunes, Puel is expecting a tough match.
"We have a lot of respect for Newcastle," the Frenchman said. "They are a good team and have a great manager.
"They had a good start to the season and they have good structure, good play and strong on the counter-attack.
"We need to keep a good concentration. It will be a difficult atmosphere."
Leicester have no new injury problems, with Demarai Gray expected to keep his place after scoring the winner against Burnley last week.
