Leicester City on Sunday outplayed Newcastle 5-0 in their tie at the King Power Stadium in Leicester on Sunday, courtesy a brace from Jamie Vardy.

Ricardo Domingos Periera drew the first blood for the hosts in the 16th minute. The goal served to be the only difference between the two sides by the first half. But the second half truly reflected the dominance of the Foxes.

Jamie Vardy initiated things in the second half (in the 54th minute) scoring the second goal for City. The goal was followed by an own goal from Paul Dummett in the 57th minute, making a three-goal difference between the two sides.

But Vardy was not finished yet as he netted his second one to make the lead 4-0, and in the dying minutes of the game Wilfred Ndidi (in the 90th minute) put the final nail in Newcastle’s coffin.

Post the humiliating loss to City, Newcastle manager Steve Bruce apologised to fans.

“You can apologise, of course,” Bruce told talkSPORT after the match.

“I’ve said many times now, you can’t take them (fans) for granted. They’re what this club are all about,” he said adding, “It’s what makes Newcastle this great club, with unbelievable support we have. To be witnessing them singing like that, when their team has been that helpless, it takes big supporters.”

“I hope they have a decent trip home, and personally I’d like to apologise and thank them because they were immense.”
