Watch Newcastle v Leicester official match highlights here

1 year ago

It was Newcastle v Leicester on Wednesday night.

Yet another Newcastle United cup run kicking off…

…and ending.

Ayoze Perez making a swift return to St James Park, almost scoring  immediately and then going close again in the final stages.

Leicester only making two changes to their Premier League team whilst Steve Bruce made seven.

Only 32% possession for Newcastle as they defended most of the game, though they did have the odd moment at the other end of the pitch.

This included Muto’s first goal at St James Park, thanks in part to Willems, who also made an outrageous dive.

Enjoy all of the official match highlights below.
