Finishing last season on neighboring 14th and 15th positions in EPL, the teams have different fates this year. Leicester are leading the table, while Newcastle are fighting for its place in EPL, currently situating on 19th position. In order to have an advantage in this battle, Newcastle officials hired Rafael Benitez to pull the team up. This experienced coach trained teams like Liverpool, Napoli and Real Madrid and is meant to bring the winner’s mentality to Newcastle, while the team is having an “injury attack”. Leicester, in turn, have to prove that the 1st position they occupy truly belongs to them. Let’s see how it works…
