Newcastle-Leicester, the likely lineups.

Newcastle and Leicester will close the 37th day of the Premier League. Kickoff at 9 p.m. at St. James Park. The Magpies, after Liverpool’s draw, only need a point for arithmetic qualification to the next Champions League, while the Foxes are obliged to win to avoid relegation.

Howe should field the offensive trident consisting of Saint-Maximin, Wilson and Gordon. In midfield trust Anderson, Guimaraes and Almiron. Smith, on the other hand, should rely on Iheanacho as center forward from the 1st. Supporting the Nigerian will be Maddison, Barnes and Tete.

Likely lineups.

NEWCASTLE (4-3-3): Pope; Trippier, Schar, Botman, Burn; Anderson, Guimaraes, Almiron; Saint-Maximin, Wilson, Gordon. Coach: Eddie Howe.

LEICESTER CITY (4-2-3-1): Iversen; Pereira, Evans, Souttar, Castagne; Ndidi, Soumare; Tete, Maddison, Barnes; Iheanacho. Coach: Dean Smith.
