Johnny Evans is hopeful to celebrate his new contract extension with three points against Newcastle at the start of the New Year.

The Foxes put up a great show at St James’ Park on New Year’s Day last year and they will be there again for the first game of this year.

Leicester City

defender

Jonny Evans

has signed a new deal to extend his stay at the Premier League club until the end of the 2022-23 season and is hopeful to celebrate another

Premier League

victory.

He told LCFC TV: “

It’s a game we’re looking forward to. We played them actually on New Year’s Day last year

.

“It’s a similar time of the year to be playing them and hopefully we can put in a performance like we did last season. It was a very good victory for us.”

Newcastle

have had ups and downs and have struggled for goals this season but also have pulled out points against some of the top-flight teams.

Northern Ireland international Evans added:

“They’re a team that like to sit back and try and make it difficult for teams and try to hit teams on the break

.

“There one of the home games, when Brendan (Rodgers) first came in, they managed to get a result against us at King Power Stadium and we were able to rectify that the next season.

“We know they’re going to be tough to break down. Steve Bruce will have them really well organized and that will be the challenge for us – to try and break them down and get a goal early on in the game.”
