Brendan Rodgers hopes Leicester learn from Newcastle defeat

English Premier League Report: Leicester City v Newcastle United 12

After a tentative opening, Newcastle went close on 15 minutes in with Solomon Rondon's free-kick flying narrowly over the top.

Catch Leicester's James Maddison on Soccer AM on Saturday.

Newcastle took a deserved lead through a Perez header after 32 minutes. Matt Ritchie burst away from Ricardo Pereira on the left wing and whipped in a fine cross that Perez met in front of Wes Morgan. We couldn't break down their defence.

Vardy should have brought the Foxes level with ten minutes remaining after going clear on the left side of the box following a great pass from Youri Tielemans, but he looped his shot just over the bar as the Magpies held on for the win.

With 38 points on the board, Rafael Benitez has steered Newcastle to near-certain safety, although his future remains in doubt.

Benitez's contract expires at the end of the season and he has compared talks with controversial club owner Mike Ashley to Brexit negotiations.

"The important thing is learning from it, we're here to help the team improve eventually in these types of games".

Leicester stayed in seventh place, tied on points with Wolverhampton Wanderers having played two games more. The players have been first class snice I came here but if you're not quite on it a result like this can happen. His seven tackles were more than anyone else on the pitch recorded.

- Newcastle have won back-to-back league visits to Leicester in the top-flight for the first time since September 1959 under manager Charlie Mitten.

The 58-year-old insists that no matter how well a team is coached if there is a financial disparity between teams, the richer side will triumph more often than not, emphasising the need for Newcastle to spend more money on players.

"The team has worked really hard this season and we can say we are a Premier League team for next season".

Perez was last season's leading scorer with 10 goals in all competitions, including eight in the league.

- Newcastle have now picked up 16 points away from home in the Premier League this season (P17 W3 D7 L7), as many as they earned in the whole of the 2017-18 campaign on the road.
