Newcastle United locked horns with Leicester City at the King Power Stadium earlier today as they hoped to secure a win on their travels in the Premier League. The Magpies made a quick start to the game and got their noses ahead in the third minute courtesy of Chris Wood’s penalty. Miguel Almiron doubled Newcastle’s advantage just four minutes later with a good strike before Joelinton made the points secure in the 32nd minute with a solid header. The Tyneside outfit went into the half-time break 3-0 up on the scoreline.

Newcastle controlled the game well in the second half and cruised to an impressive 3-0 win on the road.

Let’s take a look at how each Newcastle United player performed during the match against the Foxes.

GK: Nick Pope – 7/10

Pope made a couple of decent saves at the back and did enough work to keep his clean sheet intact.

RB: Kieran Trippier – 9/10

He earned the ball back a few times and made some meaningful chances in the final third. Trippier has got an assist to show for his efforts.

CB: Fabian Schar – 7/10

Schar did his fair share of defending and deserves credit for securing a clean sheet today.

CB: Sven Botman – 7/10

He made a handful of important clearances at the back and was accurate with his passing.

LB: Dan Burn – 7/10

He performed his defensive duties well but offered very little in the opponent’s half.

CM: Sean Longstaff – 6.5/10

Longstaff struggled to get a foothold in the game at times but offered enough protection for his teammates at the back.

CM: Bruno Guimaraes – 8.5/10

The Brazilian talent anchored the midfield well and caused a lot of problems for the opposition defenders. He ended the game with an assist to his name.

CM: Joe Willock – 7/10

Willock had some bright moments in the opponent’s half but failed to register a goal.

RW: Miguel Almiron – 8/10

ST: Chris Wood – 7.5/10

The English striker kept his calm to score his penalty but offered very little in the second half.

LW: Joelinton – 9/10

The Brazilian talent worked his socks off at both ends of the field and has even got a goal to his name. He just about deserves to be awarded the man of the match.


LW: Allan Saint-Maximin – N/A

He didn’t get enough time to make an impact.

RW: Jacob Murphy – N/A

Murphy came on for the final few minutes of the game.

LB: Matt Ritchie – N/A
