Leicester City 0-3 Newcastle United highlights

Player ratings

Newcastle United stormed to a superb away day win at Leicester City on Boxing Day to maintain their push for a Champions League place.

Goals from Chris Wood (penalty), Miguel Almiron and Joelinton effectively had the game wrapped up by the 32-minute mark. And despite Leicester rallying a little after the break they never looked any danger of a very unlikely comeback.

Here are the overall ratings from the terrific away win for Newcastle.

Match report

Newcastle United breezed to another impressive away victory to stay in the conversation for both a Champions League place – and dare I say it a Premier League title challenge.

At a venue that once saw Newcastle celebrate top-flight safety in 2018, 2019 and 2021, the Magpies offered evidence they are aiming for much bigger things these days. This game was arguably done and dusted inside the first seven minutes as Chris Wood’s penalty and Miguel Almiron‘s ninth of the season had the hosts 2-0 down before some home fans had even taken their seats.

And it was certainly game over by 32 minutes as deflated Leicester went 3-0 down thanks to Joelinton’s powerful header. By the end, Eddie Howe even had the luxury of giving some of his stars a breather as they strolled to victory.
