Newcastle United moved 10 points clear of the relegation zone after a 2-1 win at Leicester City thanks to goals from Jonjo Shelvey and Ayoze Perez.
Newcastle got off to a confident start at the King Power Stadium, and took the lead when Azoye Perez teed up Jonjo Shelvey to fire home from outside the penalty area after a deflection off of Ben Chilwell. The Magpies had a nervy moment when Paul Dummett collided with Riyad Mahrez in the box just before the break, but exhaled after penalty shouts were waved off. With a quarter of an hour remaining, though, the visitors double their lead when Perez slipped through the Leicester defense and popped a lovely chip over Kasper Schmeichel. Jamie Vardy would pull one back in the 84th, but Rafa Benitez's side held on for their third straight league win. Newcastle now sit clear of the drop zone in 10th with 38 points. Apr 7 - 12:46 PM
