Leicester thump 9-man Newcastle in massive 6-pointer

Leicester City striker Leonardo Ulloa struck twice as the Foxes thumped Newcastle United 3-0.

It marked the Toon's eighth consecutive Premier League defeat and they ended with nine men.

Ulloa headed the Foxes ahead after 38 seconds and it was 2-0 within 17 minutes as Wes Morgan poked home.

They sealed the game early in the second half when Ulloa scored from a penalty after Emmanuel Riviere shoved Marcin Wasilewski in the back.

United had Mike Williamson and Daryl Janmaat sent off in separate incidents.

Janmaat was shown a second yellow card for fouling Jamie Vardy in injury time. Before then, Williamson was also sent off for a second yellow card on the hour mark after a similar foul on Vardy.
