Wilfred Ndidi scored a 90th minute goal as Leicester ran a 5-0 riot over Newcastle United on Sunday.

It wa snot a good afternoon for Steve Bruce as the rain was torrential, hammering down on his Newcastle, who are already submerged in the relegation swamp.

Ricardo Pereira opened scoring in the 16th minute to give Leicester the lead.

Newcaslte woes were compounded following the sending off of Isaac Hayden just before half time.

That single incident wracked Newcastle as Leicester City took the one man advantage in the second half to pile pressure.

Jamie Vardy increased the tally in the 54th minute before Paul Dummett scored an own goal.

Ten minutes after his first goal, Vardy scored another to put the game beyond a frustrated Newcastle side.

Ndidi got on the scoresheet before the sound of the whistle to complete a 5-0 rout at the King Power Stadium.

It was an afternoon Newcastle were wretched, battered into submission by a Leicester team full of energy, pace and invention, and just seven games into the season it is impossible to forecast anything else but a grim battle to avoid dropping into the Championship.
