6 Dubravka: Made a couple of stops but not asked as many questions as he might have expected;

5 Yedlin: Had a tough afternoon in keeping the lively Maddison at bay down his side

5 Lascelles: Struggled to command his area like he was last season and short of his best

4 Clark: Put himself about to try to keep the Foxes front two quiet until Maguire beat him for the second

4 Kenedy: Improved but guilty of a poor start and conceding the penalty with his high arms;

4 Diame: Wasted a fantastic header in the first half that would have put Newcastle ahead

5 Shelvey: This was not a performance to win over England boss Southgate;

6 Ritchie: Put in the expected shift without causing the problems he needed to down the right

6 PEREZ: The liveliest of the forwards and had a couple of penalty claims waved away and unfortunate to go off

5 Atsu: With the exception of a fine delivery for Diame in the first half he didn’t do enough;

4 Joselu: The chance where he dawdled in the penalty area when he should have scored summed up his form


Murphy (for Ritchie 65): Went close with an effort from distance. 5

Muto (for Perez 69): Had to add something in the final third but didn’t. 5

Manquillo (for Yedlin 82)
