Newcastle United smashed Leicester City in Premier League clash

Newcastle United beat Leicester City to qualify for the Champions League next season with a 4–2 win on Saturday, which secured almost all Premier League places. The defeat left Leicester in third place, two points ahead of Chelsea and five points ahead of West Ham, with both London clubs in hand to play on Fox. 

Joe Willock, on Arsenal’s loan, put Newcastle ahead in the 22nd minute at the Kings Power Stadium, scoring their fourth consecutive top game for the Magpies. The visitors doubled their lead before the break, with a rare goal from Paul Dummett. Callum Wilson left no doubt with Newcastle’s two goals in the second half.

However, Marc Albrighton and Kelechi Iheanacho scored for Leicester City in the final 10 minutes before watching Newcastle United play. Leicester, who faces Chelsea in the FA Cup final next weekend, is in danger of new pains in the Champions League after missing the top four on the final day of last season.

Shortly before the launch, Leicester faced an obstacle when veteran defender Johnny Evans came out after being injured in a warm-up, with Rodgers stating: “He’s the brain in our defensive line… It was a big shock for us.”

Dummett took a 2–0 lead into Matt Ritchie’s corner in the 34th minute. In the middle of the second half, Newcastle was 3–0 ahead, when Richie’s move to the left saved Timothy Castagne and allowed Wilson to spin Kasper Schmeichel before scoring. Wilson scored Newcastle’s second and fourth goals in the 73rd minute, shooting back from a tight angle after the opening shot struck the bar.

The game was won by Newcastle, who, a day after the British tax authorities dropped a criminal investigation on the club, saw him dropped from 12 charges, with three games left to play.

Newcastle manager Steve Bruce said, “Happy with the win was part of the sublime. We made it a little hairy till the end. We are not safe, you cannot take it for the Premier League.”

The remaining three games in their league are currently against teams in the top six, with Brendan Rodgers’ men traveling to Manchester United on Tuesday while facing Chelsea and Tottenham before facing the Blues at Wembley.
