It was a fairly busy game in the first 45′, but in the second half the pace of the game slowed down due to how comfortable Newcastle was on the pitch.
In the second half, Leicester came close to scoring the discount goal, but Pope avoided the fall of his bow at all costs.

Chronicle Leicester vs. newcastle
First half of the magpies
The match began with actions from the first moment. Those led by Eddie Howe had the ball from minute one. With a quick transition they created danger in the local area and got a penalty.
The foul was by Daniel Amartey on Joelinton inside the area. The person in charge of executing the maximum penalty was Chris Wood at 3′. With a strong charge and in the middle, the New Zealander scored the first goal in the game for the black and white.
Total dominance was Newcastle. He got the second goal quite quickly, at minute seven, through the Paraguayan Miguel Almirón. The South American started on the right, played against the wall with Guimaraes and found space to define Ward’s far post at 7′.
The ball was handled by the visiting team throughout the first part. He was not bothered by the long ball shots that Leicester’s tried with Tielemans in search of Daka.
After so many attempts, the third came for the magpies. It was from the corner kick. Trippier’s cross passed the penalty point and sent Joelinton to save her head at 32′. A strong header to the near post where Ward could do nothing to prevent his bow from falling.
The first 45 minutes of play ended with Newcastle incisive with the ball, despite scoring goals, and Leicester without ideas. They never met on the playing field.
Second processing time
In the second half, both teams took to the field with different approaches. Leicester was more incisive in the game, but could not find the last pass that would give them the goal. Newcastle came out to defend the result achieved in the first half.
The possession of the ball was all of the locals, but they only made one shot on goal in the entire commitment. Newcastle knew how to defend themselves without the ball at their feet and when they had space to run up the field, they created danger.
The match in the supplement was quite monotonous, which meant that the result remained in the form of a win in favor of Newcastle. Three important points for those led by Eddie Howe who have established themselves in second place in the Premier League.
