Leicester City meanwhile were unbeaten in three games when arriving at St James' Park, with a 1-0 victory over Burnley following a draw with West Ham and an impressive win at home to Tottenham.

Super Eagles midfielder Wilfred Ndidi was on from the start for Leicester City as they recorded their third straight win in the English Premier League, coming from a goal down to defeat Newcastle United 3-2 at St James Park on Saturday.

Newcastle were on the wrong end of a five-goal clash against Leicester City on Saturday which condemned them to their sixth defeat in seven games.

Dwight Gayle looked to have done enough to earn a share of the spoils for the Magpies when he levelled things up with less than 20 minutes remaining, but an 86th-minute own goal from Ayoze Perez ensured that Leicester made it three wins on the bounce. "We scored a terrific second goal and came back after we conceded again with a fantastic spirit".

"It was a hard game and not our best game because we were up and down", the Frenchman told BT Sport. It is hard. After a good first half our start to the second half was not enough.

"We need to keep a good concentration and focus on this team".

After falling behind Puel's side began to stamp their name on proceedings and the pace of their attacking line was proving hard to maintain, and they were rewarded with their equaliser. We showed fantastic spirit. Riyad Mahrez picked the ball up around 25 yards out and unleashed a left-footed effort towards the Newcastle goal which beat Karl Darlow and gave the away side a deserved equaliser.
