Premier League: Leicester City defeat Newcastle

Two goals from Youri Tielemans helped Leicester defeat Newcastle 4–0 in their Premier League match. Tielemans scored a penalty in the 38th minute for Leicester. Then Patson Daka scored in the 57th minute and Tielemans scored in the 81st minute to score 3-0. Four minutes later, James Maddison scored in the 85th minute to contribute to the team’s one-sided victory.

Leicester boss Brendan Rodgers reacted as his side won the game by a 4-0 match result. “Very pleased. Obviously with Jonny Evans going out early… When you see the young team and the experience they are gaining. To keep a clean sheet against very dangerous players, I am very pleased.” He added, “That’s very important and is typified in this team. The spirit and the team are great and they are unselfish. The first goal is brilliant in terms of our pressing that leads to the penalty.”

Newcastle boss Eddie Howe said: “It was a strange game because I thought we were OK for large parts. We were ok in the first half and were a threat at times. We conceded a goal with the penalty – which was debatable whether it was. The scoreline looks like a heavy defeat but I didn’t think it felt like that at all.”

Meanwhile, the match between West Ham and Burnley ended in a goalless draw. Both the teams tried their best to take the lead till the last minute but the goal could not be scored from West Ham and Burnley till the last whistle.
