    Newcastle 0-2 Leicester

    Newcastle have a Georginio Wijnaldum header cleared off the line, while Leicester go on the counter-attack with Jamie Vardy, whose heavy touch allows Magpies keeper Rob Elliot to stop the striker in his tracks. Vardy's team-mate Riyad Mahrez is free in acres of space and isn't too happy he wasn't found.

    Newcastle had plenty of warnings but failed to heed them as Leicester turn their domination into a second goal. Leonardo Ulloa is unmarked at the far post and he heads in a Riyad Mahrez cross.

    It's that man Jamie Vardy again. He runs on to a Riyad Mahrez pass, out-muscles Chancel Mbemba and powers a shot against the crossbar.

    Newcastle 0-0 Leicester

    Leicester look a threat whenever they go forward and they win a corner when Daryl Janmaat heads a Riyad Mahrez cross out of play. 

    The Foxes are much the better side at the moment but Newcastle are always in the match unless the visitors make the most of their possession.

    Jamie Vardy celebrates

    Fair to say Jamie Vardy equaling Ruud van Nistelrooy's record of scoring in 10 consecutive Premier League matches is dividing opinion on Final Score.

    Danny Mills: "Jamie Vardy is in fantastic form but is he world class? No, not yet. How much would you pay for him? Would you pay £10m for him?" 

    Garth Crooks: "This a time to be congratulating Jamie Vardy - and in answer to Danny's question I would have to pay that if I wanted him."

    He's done it. Vardy equals ex-Manchester United striker Ruud Van Nistelrooy's record of having scored in 10 successive Premier League games.

    He plays the ball to Leonardo Ulloa and makes an angled run into the box. Ulloa plays a ball into the run of Vardy, who cuts inside Moussa Sissoko and drills in a low shot past keeper Rob Elliot.

    "If you are defender you don't want strikers who run in to the space behind you. You are much more comfortable when the striker comes off and plays to feet. Modern, quick strikers like Jamie Vardy are so potent."  

  38. A message from Ruudy

    If Leicester's Jamie Vardy scores in a 10th successive Premier League match today he'll be equaling Ruud van Nistelrooy's record.

  43. 'McClaren struggles with man-management'

    Danny Mills

    Former England defender on BBC Radio 5 live

    “Steve McClaren is a very good coach, undoubtedly. But he does struggle with man management skills from time to time.

    “I think Newcastle had a tricky start. They played well in the first four or five games but didn’t get results they needed – that knocked them back.

    “But when you look at the quality of their squad, if they finish 14th, 15th, 16th, that’s about right for them.”

  45. Shoots of recovery?

    Newcastle v Leicester (15:00 GMT)

    "Judge me after 12 games," he said. So, it is time to judge Steve McClaren. And here's his Premier League record since arriving at Newcastle: won 2, drawn four, lost six.

    “There are shoots of recovery. But with him saying judge me after 12 games, he was obviously a lot more confident of doing better than he has done. I think he would admit quietly that it hasn’t gone exactly to plan," former England keeper Paul Robinson tells 5 live Sport.

    “They won against Bournemouth last time out, albeit a game they didn’t deserve to win.

    “Results like that, when you need a win, you need to grind out a 1-0 and you need those to turn around poor spells.”

    "Leicester are aiming for a fourth consecutive win, but have an awful record up at St James' - having lost on 14 of their last 16 visits."

  48. Team news

    Newcastle v Leicester (15:00 GMT)

    Newcastle boss Steve McClaren has named an unchanged side for the third game on the trot. Keeper Rob Elliot missed both legs of Republic of Ireland's Euro 2016 play-off victory over Bosnia and Herzegovina with a thigh injury but he starts. 

    Newcastle XI: Elliot, Janmaat, Mbemba, Coloccini, Dummett, Sissoko, Anita, Tiote, Wijnaldum, Mitrovic, Perez.

    Newcastle line-up

    Leicester striker Jamie Vardy missed England's recent two games with a hip problem but is fit enough to take his place in the Foxes line-up as he aims to score for a record-equalling 10th top-flight game on the spin. There's just one change from their last game, which was a win over Watford, as forward Leonardo Ulloa replaces Jeffrey Schlupp.

    Leicester XI: Schmeichel, Simpson, Morgan, Huth, Fuchs, Mahrez, Kante, Drinkwater, Albrighton, Ulloa, Vardy.

    Newcastle v Leicester (15:00 GMT)

    Newcastle v Leicester

    "Whether Vardy makes it or not, I have a feeling Newcastle will edge this one.

    "The Magpies' last game was probably their best result of the season - they got battered at Bournemouth but won 1-0 to climb out of the bottom three - and it might just prove to be a turning point."

    Jamie Vardy

    Can Jamie Vardy write himself into Premier League history? Of all the players you might have picked to be in with a chance of equalling ex-Manchester United striker Ruud van Nistelrooy’s record of scoring in 10 consecutive Premier League goal, Vardy probably wouldn't be very high on the list - apart from if he wrote it himself.

    But the Leicester forward has scored in nine top flight games on the trot and is one goal away from Van Nistelrooy's tally.

    In his way, an improving Newcastle side that has shipped 22 goals so far this season but have clean sheets from their last two games.
