Leicester City beat Newcastle United 3-0 at St. James’ Park in dominant fashion.

City made it back-to-back away wins and looked in total control from the first minute.

Jonny Evans came close to opening the scoring very early on after connecting well with an excellent corner delivery from James Maddison but the header directed straight at Newcastle keeper Martin Dubravka.

Leicester seemed to be laying with the Magpies’ defence, passing the ball from side-to-side in the home side’s half.

The opening goal, however, came on a mistake from United defender Florian Lejeune who passed the ball accross his own box which was pounced on well by former Newcastle forward Ayoze Perez, who stayed on his feet despite contact in the box to fire Leicester into the lead.

It was only a couple of minutes later when Leicester doubled their lead. Perez teeing up Maddison who hit a superb strike from 25 yards into the top corner.

Things didn’t get better for the hosts at the start of the second-half. Having already used all of their substitutions centre-back Fabian Schar went down with a pulled hamstring and was unable to continue.

It looked like a pre-season match-up after Steve Bruce’s side were forced to play with ten men and Leicester never looked troubled.

The visitors just kept hold of the ball with ease and coasted through the rest of the match.

It was Hamza Choudhury who added the Foxes’ third with a composed effort from the edge of the box, side-footing the ball into the top corner.
