Newcastle United 0-3 Leicester City

Well, that was pretty simple for Leicester. Following the two strikes in the first-half, the game was pretty much done, and even more so following Fabian Schar's withdrawal. 

 

We're all done here but make sure you stick with VAVEL UK throughout today for reaction to this game and of course the rest of the New Year action!

17:269 months ago

Newcastle United 0-2 Leicester City

66' Lovely attempt by Perez as he is played in behind and tries to chip Dubravka but the ball drops just wide. The linesman's flag spares his blushes but he did look onside. Would have been interesting if that had ended up in the net.

17:069 months ago

Newcastle United 0-2 Leicester City

Newcastle United 0-2 Leicester City

Players on the way back out. Big half needed for the hosts or else this could get ugly. Jonjo Shelvey has been replaced by Sean Longstaff.
16:559 months ago

Newcastle United 0-2 Leicester City

HT Boos rang out across St James' Park upon the half-time whistle after an opening period in which they gifted Leicester two goals. It's been uninspiring from the Magpies so far and you can imagine Steve Bruce will not be best pleased in the dressing room.
16:499 months ago

Newcastle 0-2 Leicester City

HT And that will be half-time. Leicester have been dominant but they've had a huge helping hand from the hosts, with Florian Lejeune twice giving the ball away.

45' Three additional minutes at St James' Park and Leicester really are turning on the style now. Maddison has just had another effort from inside of the box blocked. This could turn into a long afternoon for the Magpies.
16:439 months ago

Newcastle United 0-2 Leicester City

43' Wonderful chance for a third as Perez is released in behind and pulls the ball back for Iheanacho but the Nigerian can't finish. I suspect that the Spaniard was offside anyway, though.

Newcastle United 0-2 Leicester City

39' GOAL! Leicester double their lead and it's a stunner from James Maddison as he fires into the top corner from what is at least 25 yards! Newcastle shoulder yet more of the blame though as it's another sloppy bit of play that saw the Foxes gifted the ball.
16:379 months ago

Newcastle United 0-1 Leicester City

36' GOAL! It was bound to be him, wasn't it? Ayoze Perez picks off a sloppy pass from Lejeune, tears towards goal and finishes into the bottom corner past Dubravka!

Newcastle United 0-0 Leicester City

27' Big opportunity for the hosts! Joelinton is played through and is one-on-one with Kasper Schmeichel but can't finish. What a chance wasted.

Newcastle United 0-0 Leicester City

15' Not so confident from Dubravka this time as he palms Tielemans' low drive into a dangerous area but Federico Fernandez manages to scramble clear before Ayoze Perez can pounce. Leicester certainly looking the most threatening so far.
16:119 months ago

Leicester Team News

Following the nine changes made for their match against West Ham, there could be a more familiar look to the Leicester side at St James’ Park. Ricardo Pereira should be fine to return, with Jamie Vardy also likely to be recalled to the XI following the birth of his child.
16:329 months ago

Newcastle Team News

Newcastle have continually been hit by injuries this season and it’s no different for their upcoming game with Leicester. Ki Sung-Yeung, Paul Dummett, Florian Lejeune, Ciaran Clark, Joelinton and Fabian Schar are all doubtful and will be monitored before the match. Long-term absentees Matt Ritchie, Allan Saint-Maximin and Jamaal Lascelles all still remain ruled out.
16:319 months ago

Bruce on Magpies’ response…

Meanwhile, following his team’s hammering in the East Midlands, Bruce has been impressed with the Magpies’ reaction since. He said: “When you deliver some home truths, the one thing you need is a response. If they down tools, then you’ve had it, but the response from them has been very good.”

Rodgers on Newcastle challenge…

Despite that thumping win, Brendan Rodgers has suggested he is expecting a far tougher game on Wednesday. He said: “We played very well against [Newcastle] earlier in the season but going to St James’ Park is tough.

“I think their style and how the team plays is pretty much set. We’re going to have to be patient in the game but play at speed. There’ll be a deep block not too far away from the 18-yard line and we have to work the ball at speed and with quality to work the opportunities.”

What happened last time?

The two teams have already twice met this season already – once in the Premier League and the other in the Carabao Cup. Leicester have won both games, earning an emphatic 5-0 victory as the two came together in league action at the King Power Stadium back in September.

Immovable object or unstoppable force?

One aspect that the high-flying Foxes will have to overcome in order to earn a positive result is breaking the Toon’s tenacious backline. Bruce’s troops boast the joint-best home defensive record in the league having only shipped nine goals in ten matches. However, Leicester have threatened on their travels this season and scored the second most away goals, just three fewer than Manchester City. It could be fair to say that something has to give.
16:269 months ago

Toon To Get Back On Track?

In what was an impressive festive month for Steve Bruce’s Newcastle in which they earned crucial wins against Sheffield United, Crystal Palace and Southampton, the Magpies head into the clash with Leicester aiming to halt a losing run. The team at first were thumped by Manchester United at Old Trafford before falling to Everton last time out on home soil. They will be hoping then to avoid suffering three consecutive Premier League for the first time since October 2018.

Back To Winning Ways

Leicester travel to St James’ Park aiming to build on their fantastic victory against West Ham United last time out. Following back-to-back losses against Manchester City and Liverpool, the win at the London Stadium was just the tonic that Brendan Rodgers’ men needed. With another three points today, the Foxes could potentially reduce the gap to Liverpool to three points.
