Newcastle win away with Perez header at Leicester

Newcastle win away with Perez header at Leicester

Newcastle United boss Rafa Benitez is delighted with the form of Ayoze Perez.

Brendan Rodgers' in-form Leicester City side were hard at work at Belvoir Drive ahead of Friday night's fixture at King Power Stadium.

Speaking to Sky Sports, Leicester manager Rodgers, who was appointed in late February, said: "It was interesting to watch the team because it is the first time I have really seen us in this type of game where we have to break them down, and I think it's an area where the team has struggled but hopefully in time we will get better at that".

"38 points should be enough and that means a lot".

The impact he has made has been tremendous and you can be sure Benitez is not too anxious about what he has seen - in fact the Spaniard is likely to be overjoyed.

"Over the last four games, we've started to pick up results we've warranted".

He has Maguire available again after the defender was rested for the 4-1 win over Huddersfield last weekend following the birth of his daughter Lillie. We changed it around a few times but it was one of those evenings.

In a game that if Newcastle won they would all but guarantee their place in the Premier League for next season.

"Hopefully, I can improve the number (of goals) I had last season", said the 25-year-old. "We have a tough schedule, but if we play the way we did, hopefully we can keep climbing". We have been working for just over four weeks, they are a great group of players that will get better. That's what happened in my second season here, we were relegated with a great team.

Newcastle United fans have enjoyed what they have seen of attacking maestro Miguel Almiron since his high profile switch to St James' Park, and you can be sure Rafael Benitez is also pretty happy with what his new man has contributed to the cause.

The Magpies went into the clash with the former champions in a pretty good position from which to stay in the top flight, but needed another win just to make extra sure, and that is exactly what they got.
