Match Ratings: Newcastle United 0 Leicester City 0 – Anderson star

NEWCASTLE (4-3-3):

7 pope: Had nothing to do for 90 minutes but then managed a crucial stop from Castagne in stoppage time

8th trippier: Rock solid defensively, although his serious attacks caused a number of problems on the other side of the Leicester defence

7 crowd: Has kept Vardy calm with a minimum of fuss and has always been in the right position to deal with Leicester’s attacks

7 Botman: Dominating defensively as he has done all season – is one of the Newcastle team’s unsung heroes

6 Burn: Coped with Leicester’s attacking threat down the right flank but was not always the most composed player in possession

7 long staff: His return to the starting XI restored balance in Newcastle’s midfield – he kept the ball moving in the central third

7 Guimaraes: May have been lucky enough to avoid an early dismissal but controlled much of the game from that point on

8th Anderson: Has proved more than capable of handling himself at this level – he has made some useful glitches down the left flank of Newcastle

7 Almiron: Hit the post with a first-half strike and kept trying to break through the Foxes’ defense

6 Wilson: Didn’t see much of the ball but was inches from breaking the deadlock in the first half when he shot against the post

7 isak: Menacing as he broke into the field from the left and came close in the second half with a shot that tipped over


5 Saint Maximin (for Wilson, 68): Couldn’t make any real impact in the closing stages of the game

Murphy (for Anderson, 77)

Gordon (for Almiron, 87)
