Leicester 5 Newcastle 0 – Watch the official match highlights (post-mortem) here

2 years ago

It ended Leicester 5 Newcastle 0 on Sunday.

An abysmal performance with Newcastle having the usual (31%) level of possession.

Steve Bruce has carried a lot of luck this season with fortunate draws at home to Brighton and Watford, as well as a backs to the wall win at Spurs, scoring a winner despite only two shots on target.

This time though the luck ran out.

Ayoze Perez could and should have put Leicester ahead after only two minutes and the writing was on the wall.

Five goals and a desperate performance, in truth as bad before Hayden got sent off as it was afterwards.

Newcastle ending the game without a corner or shot on target.

Two of the goals came via deflections but this kind of scoreline has been coming for a while.
