Football Results: Newcastle 2-0 Leicester City

Dan Burn scored his first goal for the club to help Newcastle produce one of the narrow football results of the weekend in the Carabao Cup.  However, the game didn’t get underway until Dan Burn scored his first club goal in the 60th minute in front of a loud St James’ Park crowd. Twelve minutes later, that advantage was increased when Joelinton scored the winning goal by making a break for it down the left and picking the same corner as Burn. For the bulk of the game, Leicester offered little without the still-injured James Maddison. Foxes did create a couple of last-second chances but substitute Jamie Vardy blew the biggest one-by-sidefooting over with the goal open from seven yards out.

As they hunt their first major trophy since 1969, Newcastle ends a 47-year drought without making it to the League Cup semifinals with the victory. They will find out who they will play in the semifinals on Wednesday night. Newcastle needed to get going quickly because of their boisterous home fans, and they might have taken the lead after only 45 seconds if Sean Longstaff hadn’t squandered a clear chance at the back post. The great Bruno Guimaraes missed the goal after Joe Willock and Joelinton made a wonderful connection down the left, while Longstaff had another fantastic opportunity when Danny Ward cleared his attempt.

Despite Newcastle’s dominance, Leicester was able to conclude the half at 0-0 thanks to Patson Daka’s bad choice to cross the ball rather than shoot from the angle. The contest continued lopsided as Joelinton’s low shot rebounded off the post seconds after the restart. Burn then headed over Kieren Trippier’s free-kick after misjudging it, but his chance would come. To thrill the home crowd, the full-back, a former Newcastle season ticket holder, surged into the penalty area from the left and shot across Ward and inside the right post.

The roof of the stadium collapsed once more shortly after Joelinton intercepted a pass from Miguel Almiron and ejected Marc Albrighton from the game. The Brazilian made a stunning finish in the far corner, similar to Burn. After falling behind 2-0, Leicester seemed to gain momentum with Vardy on the pitch. He missed two excellent opportunities to halve the deficit, however, by first missing an open goal from seven yards out and then hitting wide on an angle. Newcastle ruled the evening. And take note of how happy the home crowd was.

“The atmosphere was comparable to that of the Leeds and Sheffield Wednesday games. Despite numerous opportunities, we failed to seize them. It’s crucial to maintain patience, avoid overanalyzing situations, and refrain from being lavish. I thought we had everything under control. The goals arrived at a perfect time. You are constantly seeking improvements,” Newcastle manager Eddie Howe said. “Leicester poses a threat during transitions, particularly after Vardy is added. The defender maintained excellent focus. At 0-0, we had them in check. Our team’s ability to keep going is what sets them apart. Our team’s athletic prowess is really strong. Along with that, our players have the mentality to comprehend the necessity of working and running. We kept trying to push through to the conclusion.”

“First of all, congrats to Newcastle for advancing to the semifinals. They deserved to win the game, in my opinion. We lacked excellence. We were too careless with the ball and required too many touches. We don’t argue about anything. including two easy goals. These are areas where we can improve. Newcastle, however, was superior,” Leicester boss Brendan Rodgers said. “There was a chance. We made good progress in the first half. Our chances in the second half were good. It becomes tenser if Jamie [Vardy] makes it 2-1 in the final 15 minutes of play. We weren’t quite able to achieve our goal of making them feel under strain.”
