English Premier League: Newcastle move closer to survival with win over Leicester

English Premier League: Newcastle move closer to survival with win over Leicester”

Leicester: Newcastle took a huge step towards securing their Premier League survival as Ayoze Perez sealed a 1-0 win against Leicester on Friday.

Almiron had three great chances to score some goals for Newcastle, but defensive pressure and big saves from Kasper Schmeichel denied the former Atlanta United star.

Benitez's contract expires at the end of the season and he has compared talks with controversial club owner Mike Ashley to Brexit negotiations.

"We have to have a team who can compete".

Leicester remain in seventh place, tied on points with Wolverhampton Wanderers having played two games more.

"You can do everything right with your tactics, but the other team has one player that can make the difference".

"When you play an opponent that's very deep and put all 11 players in the final third of the pitch, then of course it's hard".

The Magpies didn't see much of the ball at the King Power, but it was them who came closest to taking the lead in the early stages when Salomon Rondon thundered a free kick against the angle of bar and post.

With four games left to play, victory should ensure Newcastle's safety in the Premier League for another season while Leicester could slip down to 10th if results go against them over the weekend.

Leicester striker Jamie Vardy had struggled to penetrate Newcastle's well-drilled defence and when he finally got a sight of goal he misfired, lifting his shot over from Youri Tielemans' pass.
