Leicester City’s superb start to the season continues after a dominant 5-0 win over Newcastle United.

The opener came as Ricardo Pereira burst away from Newcastle defenders onto the edge of the box before placing his shot excellently into the bottom corner; the right-back’s second goal in two games.

Leicester continued to apply pressure throughout the remainder of the first-half, threatening to add another.

As the first-half wound to a close, a reckless challenge from Issac Hayden, as he flew two-footed into Dennis Praet, saw the Newcastle midfielder sent off.

The home side always looked in control and it didn’t take long into the second-half for the Foxes to extend their lead as Harvey Barnes played Jamie Vardy through who the finished well at a tight angle.

The Leicester second then opened the floodgates, as two more goals followed within ten minutes.

The first came as Praet stormed into the Newcastle box and aimed to play a ball across to his teammates in the middle, which was then deflected by Paul Dummett into his own net.

This was quickly followed by a second from Vardy. The striker getting on the end of a trademark cross from Marc Albrighton.

It looked as though that would be the end of Newcastle’s humiliation, but at the start of added time Wilfred Ndidi made it five from the middle of the box.

Leicester kept focused on hungry until the end as they retake third place in the Premier League table.
