Perez thinks Newcastle are safe after scoring the victor at Leicester

  • Leicester boss Brendan Rodgers insists Jamie Vardy won't U-turn on his England retirement

Leicester completed 649 passes but Newcastle goalkeeper Martin Dubravka was not tested too severely and Foxes boss Brendan Rodgers accepted his team need to be more ambitious on the ball and precise in possession.

Newcastle took the lead in the 32nd minute, though.

Perez was denied by a fine save from Schmeichel in a frantic finale.

Vardy had Leicester's best chance to equalise, lifting a shot over the bar from close range after being fed a pass by Youri Tielemans with 10 minutes left. We couldn't break down their defence.

Benitez's contract expires at the end of the season and he has compared talks with controversial club owner Mike Ashley to Brexit negotiations. It's a rather new twist on Arsène Wenger's old "fourth place is like a trophy" mantra, and to be honest the fact it's had to be confected says a lot about the state of the Premier League at the moment - but it should mean a place in the Europa League qualifying rounds so, well, why not go for it? His seven tackles were more than anyone else on the pitch recorded.

Vardy had scored six goals in the club's five matches under Rodgers, who joined from Celtic, but apart from an early chance that was saved he had little impact on the game.

Anyone who has watched Newcastle on a regular basis this season will know what sort of difference the Magpies' Paraguayan ace has made to the forward line on Tyneside, with his performances bringing the very best out of attacking partners Ayoze Perez and Salomon Rondon. Newcastle were very drab at Arsenal the other week and even worse at West Ham a bit before that.

The Senegalese worldwide joined Newcastle from Hull City in 2016 and has gone on to become a first-team regular at the club.

Newcastle's Fabian Schar formed part of two changes from their defeat at Palace as Leicester' sole change resulted in the return of Harry Maguire.

Perez was last season's leading scorer with 10 goals in all competitions, including eight in the league. - Newcastle has now picked up 16 points away from home in the Premier League this season (P17 W3 D7 L7), as many as it earned in the whole of the 2017-18 campaign on the road.
