Three photos which sum up the difference between Leicester City and Newcastle United

St James Park

Leicester City defeated Newcastle United 3-0 at the King Power Stadium in the Premier League on Saturday.

Newcastle United are trouble, deep, deep trouble.

The Magpies have lost their last eight Premier League games and are in real danger of going down to the Championship.

The latest defeat for Newcastle came on Saturday afternoon, as they went down 3-0 to Leicester City away from home.

Leicester controlled the game from start to finish, as John Carver’s side struggled to match their opponents who are also fighting for survival in the English top flight.

Newcastle ended the contest with nine men following the dismissals of Mike Williamson and Daryl Janmaat in separate incidents.

While the Magpies’ overall performance left much to be desired, Leicester showed the kind of confidence and determination that a team in their position need.

Nigel Pearson’s players imposed themselves on their Newcastle counterparts and deserved to pick up the three points.

Leicester had everything that Newcastle did not, and the following three photos from the match sum up the difference between the two teams at the moment.
