Two former Liverpool managers meet again when Newcastle United and Rafa Benitez travel to King Power Stadium to take on red-hot Leicester City in the weekend’s English Premier League opener. Leicester City have won four matches in a row under new manager Brendan Rodgers, who made his return to the Premier League in late February after three years managing iconic Glasgow club Celtic in the Scottish league. And with the winning streak, according to Yahoo! Sports, Rodgers has the 2015-2016 champions aiming to solidify a respectable seventh place finish, while Benitez and his Newcastle side aim to shorten up their position in the top flight, with only seven points separating them from relegation, in the match that will live stream from Leicester.
