The Foxes welcome Newcastle United to King Power Stadium on Sunday looking to recover from successive defeats. City were edged out by Aston Villa in Birmingham last weekend, before a 3-2 reverse at Napoli ended the Club's participation in the UEFA Europa League. 

Thomas, 20, has made 13 appearances for Leicester across all competitions this term and is determined to play his own role in helping the team pick up positive results on a more consistent basis over the coming weeks. 

"Newcastle are always a difficult team to beat," he told LCFC TV in Seagrave this week. "We know, if we’re on our best form and if we show our qualities, we know we can beat any team in the league. If we can show that on Sunday, we can get the three points.

We’ve still got more than half of the season to go and we know we can get to the places we want to be in at the end of the season.

"It’s been a difficult season so far. We’ve not quite got the rub of the green in games. We know we can turn that around so quickly. We’ve still got more than half of the season to go and we know we can get to the places we want to be in at the end of the season.

"We’ll look to start by doing that on Sunday against Newcastle. That’s what we’re like as a team, bouncing back after a defeat. We’ll look to do that on Sunday and hopefully we’ll come out with the three points."

Reflecting on City's last Premier League outing, at Villa Park, Thomas admits the players were frustrated not to earn more from a clash which saw them create several goalscoring opportunities. Eradicating errors and taking opportunities will be key - as will the backing of the Blue Army.

Thomas Previews Newcastle's Visit To Leicester

Academy graduate Luke Thomas speaks to LCFC TV ahead of Sunday's Premier League clash with Newcastle United.

"It’s a game we can learn from," he added. "We started the game well. We could have been two or three up at half-time, but going in at 1-1 was a hard one to take for the team. Coming out in the second half and them getting the early goal, we were pushing for the rest of the game.

"They dropped back and it’s always hard to break a team down when they’ve got that one-goal lead. [The fans] can be massive. They’re always behind us in each game, so hopefully they’ll be on Sunday and we can show them what we can do and get the three points they’ll want."
