Newcastle United entertained Leicester City at St. James’ Park earlier tonight as they looked to earn a positive result at home in the EFL Cup. The Magpies made a dominant start to the game but were held to a scoreless draw at the half-time break.

Dan Burn finally managed to net the opening goal at the hour mark before Joelinton doubled Newcastle’s advantage just 12 minutes later. The contest ended with the Magpies earning an impressive 2-0 win at Tyneside.

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

GK: Nick Pope – 7/10

The English keeper made just one save during the game and secured a comfortable clean sheet at home.

RB: Kieran Trippier – 8/10

Trippier gave a good account of himself on the defensive end of the field and engineered some decent chances in the final third.

CB: Fabian Schar – 7/10

Schar did his fair share of defending and did enough to secure a clean sheet tonight.

CB: Sven Botman – 7/10

He made a few important clearances at the back and made one key chance in the final third. Botman will be happy with the shutout.

LB: Dan Burn – 8/10

The English talent cleared his lines when needed and was a threat going forward. He scored the opening goal in the 60th minute.
