Newcastle United will begin their FA Cup campaign on Saturday 3 January against Leicester City.

The game has not been selected for TV transmission, meaning kick-off is at a traditional 3pm slot at the King Power Stadium.

Alan Pardew’s side have already triumphed over Leicester once already this season, when Gabriel Obertan scored the only goal in a 1-0 win at St James’ Park.

Newcastle will be hoping to replicate the kind of run that has led them to the semi-final of the Capital One Cup against Tottenham tomorrow night.
