Leicester City emerged victorious in a five-goal thriller away to Newcastle United on Saturday to move up to 8th in the Premier League table.
Joselu put the home side ahead in the fourth minute, before Riyad Mahrez levelled the game mid-way through the first-half. The sides went into the break level before Demarai Gray gave Leicester the lead on the hour mark.
Newcastle fought back well through Dwight Gayle who made it 2-2 in the 73rd minute, but Leicester had the last laugh at St James’ Park. An Ayoze Perez own goal gave City all three points in the final few minutes of the game.
On Sunday, Manchester City extended their lead at the top of the Premier League table after beating Manchester United 2-1 at Old Trafford.
David Silva thought he’d done enough to send the visitors in ahead at the restart but his opening goal was cancelled out by Marcus Rashford minutes later.
After the break, Nicolas Otamendi struck minutes before the hour mark and City saw the game out at Old Trafford to register a fantastic away win. The Sky Blues went nine points clear at the top and extended their unbeaten run to 16 games.
