Leicester City’s four game winning run was put to an end after a 1-0 home defeat to Newcastle United. 

Ayoze Perez got the only goal of the night at the King Power stadium as he beat Wes Morgan into the air to nod in a well placed header past Kasper Schmeichel.

Leicester weren’t at the races from the start, while they dominated possession the opening half an hour saw the home side frustrated with miss placed and clumsy passes putting a stop to any threatening attacks and causing themselves issues at the back. 

City were made to pay for their clumsiness. Once Perez had given the visitors the lead, Newcastle became even harder to break down. Their defense setting up further and further back, the spaces grew progressively smaller for Leicester to try to break through.

Newcastle’s three centre-backs managed to keep an in form Jamie Vardy quiet all evening, the one chance the Leicester striker had after a stunning pass from Youri Tielemans was sent sailing over the bar.
