Ayoze Perez heads Newcastle closer to safety in EPL

Leicester boss Brendan Rodgers insists Jamie Vardy won't U-turn on his England retirement

The win is made all the better by the fact that Leicester had won their last four games but had limited chances to score this evening. I think you'll see from the younger players, he'll bring them through, he's an excellent coach. - Leicester City completed 649 passes, its highest total in a Premier League game since 2003-04 (when Opta began recording this data); indeed, three of its four highest successful pass tallies in this time in the division have been recorded in their six fixtures under Brendan Rodgers.

"Now we're coming into a set of fixtures that are hard, but I think we have more than enough ability in our squad to go and beat any team in the Premier League".

"In the second half we had a couple of chances and much better pressure in the game but it wasn't quite enough". "She's doing all the feeding at the minute, so it's tougher on her, but it's a really nice time for us both and we're really looking forward to it".

The Magpies went into the clash with the former champions in a pretty good position from which to stay in the top flight, but needed another win just to make extra sure, and that is exactly what they got.

"They're a good team, with a great manager and have had a good season".

The lack of clear-cut openings continued with the commencement of the second half, with Jamie Vardy failing to turn home Chilwell's delivery by a whisker on the hour mark.

"That's what you have to do, otherwise you are going to be even lower in the Premier League and we would have been fighting relegation". Meanwhile, Newcastle have lost more Premier League games on Friday than any other side (6).

Perez nearly squeezed home the second goal for Newcastle with 14 minutes remaining after getting on the end of a loose ball at the near post but Schmeichel was alert to make the save this time.

Newcastle have now picked up 16 points away from home in the Premier League this season (P17 W3 D7 L7), as many as they earned in the whole of the 2017-18 campaign on the road.
