Newcastle United after changing hands with new owner from the gulf were given a momentary hype that got many assuming the imminent change the club might go through after their abysmal start to the EPL season.
Nothing seems to have changed after sacking their coach and bringing in Eddie Howe. After sixteen (16) games played, Newcastle United have been able to pick ten (10) point equal with Norwich City.
Newcastle United were hosted at the King Power Stadium and their woes continued following another trashing further pushing the team to remain in the relegation zone.
The game which started with Newcastle looking promising soon switched hands after Leicester City were awarded a penalty in the 38th minute.
Youri Tiekemans made no mistake as his placed it past Martin Dubravka to give the Foxes the lead. The hosts kept pushing and keeping majority of possession until the whistle for the first half.
The second half was no different as Newcastle United posed no threat to the hosts after wasting lost of chances in front of goal and giving away sloppy possession in the center circle.
12 minutes into the second half, a sweet team work starting from the centre circle saw Harvey Barnes in a position to score but the unselfish Harvey made it easy for himself after placing a pass which was connected by Patson Daka.
Youri Tielemans got his second for the day in the 81st minute connecting to a pass from James Maddison who was exceptional throughout the match.
Four minutes after Leicester City went up by three (3) goals, James Maddison got his goal after Patson Daka paid back a favour by placing a pass which Maddison could not miss.
Newcastle United’s goal was breached four times with no response.
