Newcastle beats Leicester 1-0, moves closer to EPL survival

We have the city, we have all the potential, we have everyone in Newcastle supporting the team, it's massive.

Ayoze Perez's 32nd minute header settled the tie at the King Power Stadium to move Newcastle onto 38 points, 10 points clear of Cardiff City in the drop zone.

Perez nearly squeezed home the second goal for Newcastle with 14 minutes remaining after getting on the end of a loose ball at the near post but Schmeichel was alert to make the save this time.

They also looked the more threatening team every time they went forward, with Salomon Rondon the ideal target man as he allowed his teammates to work off him.

Amid rumours he might not be in charge next season if Ashley won't promise more investment, Benitez added: "We have to have a team who can compete". We have the city, we have all the potential.

"There are lots of things for us to work on and analyse and we will be better for it". That will need to get sorted and we need to focus on football and finishing in a better position than we did last season.

"You can do everything right with your tactics, but the other team has one player that can make the difference".

Salomon Rondon came the closest in the opening stages after rattling the crossbar from a long-range free-kick.

Brendan Rodgers insists his Leicester squad will learn from their disappointing home defeat to Newcastle on Friday. The goal we can do better with the second and third ball and then we concede.

"The speed of our passing in particular can be much better". Matt Ritchie burst away from Ricardo Pereira on the left wing and whipped in a fine cross that Perez met in front of Wes Morgan.

Former England striker Vardy had scored six goals in Leicester's five Premier League games under Rodgers so far, but he was barely involved as his side slipped to defeat.

Vardy should have brought the Foxes level with ten minutes remaining after going clear on the left side of the box following a great pass from Youri Tielemans, but he looped his shot just over the bar as the Magpies held on for the win.
