Leicester City 1 – Newcastle United 2
All thoughts of Newcastle United being relegated are surely over.
Rafa Benitez – arguably the manager of the season – saw Newcastle move up to tenth in the Premier League on Saturday.
In a wonderful away day, the Magpies beat Leicester City 2-1 at the King Power.
Jonjo Shelvey scored his first goal of the season in the 18th minute to fire Newcastle ahead from a counter-attack.
Leicester’s defence were all-at-sea in the 75th minute as Ayoze Perez was able to lob home Newcastle’s crucial second.
Jamie Vardy set up a tense finish with a goal in the 83rd, but the Foxes failed to find a leveller.
Mo Diame kicked Jamie Vardy in his d***
Should Leicester City have won a first half penalty?
Leicester fans were calling for a spot-kick after Newcastle’s Mo Diame kicked Leicester’s Jamie Vardy in his d***.
The incident happened after Riyad Mahrez corner. Vardy jumped high near the touchline to keep the ball in play, while Diame kicked the Leicester star in his crown jewels.
Diame got nowhere near the ball, while Vardy was left grounded in serious pain for his troubles.
Newcastle fans enjoyed the moment.
Mo Diame has just kicked a jumping Jamie Vardy clean in the dick. Absolute scenes
