  • DAKA DOUBLES THE LEAD! Tasked with rolling the ball into an empty net from yards out, Daka completes the formalities, having benefitted from great interplay by Maddison and Barnes on the left. Out of nothing, a dash of invention sees the Foxes take a two-goal lead, and they are definitely in the driving seat now! Leicester 2-0 Newcastle.

  • THREE FOR LEICESTER! More tidy work from Maddison and Daka creates an opening for the unmarked Tielemans at the back post, and the Belgian midfielder crashes the ball home emphatically to cap another smart move. The Foxes have slayed the Magpies: they now lead 3-0!
