Leicester City’s impressive start to the season under Brendan Rodgers continued with a thumping win which left woeful Newcastle anchored in the relegation zone. Ricardo Pereira’s outstanding low finish set Leicester on their way before Newcastle were reduced to 10 men shortly before half-time after Isaac Hayden’s terrible challenge on Dennis Praet.

Leicester made the extra man advantage count with three goals in 10 second-half minutes. Jamie Vardy beat Martin Dubravka at his near post to double the lead and, after Paul Dummett had deflected Praet’s cross into his own net to make it 3-0, headed the fourth. On a miserable day for Newcastle, Wilfred Ndidi added a late fifth goal with a shot on the turn. Leicester move back up to third in the table, where they started the weekend, after a fourth win in five league and cup games. Rodgers’ side are two points off second placed Manchester City and seven behind leaders Liverpool, who they visit next Saturday.
