Leicester City v Newcastle United live stream, Sky Sports, Friday 7 May, 8pm BST

Leicester will take another step towards Champions League qualification if they beat Newcastle on Friday night.

The Foxes suffered a late-season collapse last term which saw them drop out of the top four in the final weeks of the campaign. A fifth-place finish was still a fine achievement for Brendan Rodgers’s side, but it did not feel that way given Leicester had been in the top four for the majority of the season. 

Back-to-back defeats by Manchester City and West Ham last month suggested Leicester were wobbling again, but their recent performances and results show they are back on track. Rodgers’s men have taken seven points from the last nine available and probably need just two more wins to get over the line. 

Leicester have only competed in the Champions League once before, so qualification would be a major accomplishment by Rodgers and his players. The Foxes are also through to the FA Cup final, where Chelsea await on May 15.

Newcastle fans might be being overly pessimistic, but relegation fears have yet to be extinguished in the northeast. A 2-0 loss to Arsenal last Sunday left the Magpies nine points clear of the drop zone, but a trip to Fulham on the final day could yet be a winner-takes-all encounter. That is unlikely given the Cottagers’ recent form, but Newcastle supporters are certainly not celebrating survival just yet.

Leicester will have to make do without James Justin, Harvey Barnes and Wes Morgan, none of whom will play again this season. Kelechi Iheanacho will be looking to build on a record which has seen him score nine goals in his last eight league games.

Newcastle will be unable to call upon the services of Jamaal Lascelles, Ryan Fraser, Isaac Hayden, Fabian Schar and Karl Darlow, but Arsenal loanee Joe Willock will return after being ineligible to face his parent club last time out.

Kick-off is at 8pm BST and the game is being shown on Sky Sports Main Event and Sky Sports Premier League. See below for watching details where you are.

Use a VPN to watch a Leicester City v Newcastle United live stream from outside your country

If you’re on holiday or just simply out of the country, your domestic on-demand services won’t work – the broadcaster knows exactly where you are from your IP address. Your access to the game will be automatically blocked, which is annoying if you’ve paid a subscription fee and don't want to use an illegal, buffering stream that makes you miss another Jose Mourinho tantrum. And that's where we recommend ExpressVPN (more on which below). 

All you need to do is get a Virtual Private Network (VPN) to get beyond such aggravations (assuming it complies with your broadcaster’s T&Cs). A VPN creates a private connection between your device and the internet, meaning suppliers can’t work out where you are and what you’re doing. The info going to and from is entirely encrypted.

There are plenty of options out there, including: 

ExpressVPN

ExpressVPN including a 30-day, money-back guarantee

FourFourTwo’s brainy office mates TechRadar love its super speedy connections, trustworthy security and the fact it works with Android, Apple, Roku, Amazon Fire TV, PS4 and loads more. You also get a money-back guarantee, 24/7 support and it's currently available for a knockdown price. Go get it! 

NordVPN NordLocker

NordVPN with quality mobile and desktop apps

A cheaper option and almost ExpressVPN's equal when it comes to quality, too. A single subscription covers six connections, so you can use it on mobile, laptop, streaming devices and more, all at the same time.

Surfshark Surfshark VPN

Surfshark offers a great VPN at a fraction of the price

It's clear to see why Surfshark is top of TechRadar's best cheap VPN table – it combines an excellent product with bargain pricing, starting at £2/$2.50 a month!
