Tell us your Newcastle United player ratings after dramatic win over Leicester City
If fans thought Newcastle’s hopes of getting a victory against Leicester City were dead and buried as injury time ticked by, they were wrong.
Because on Easter Sunday, Brazilian superstar-in-the-making Bruno Guimaraes brought those hopes back from the dead.
Newcastle United had fallen behind early in the first half against Leicester City, but shortly afterwards Bruno battled with Leicester goalkeeper Kasper Schmeichel to get the ball,
Kasper Schmeichel to get the ball, nudging it with his foot from between Schmeichel’s legs into the goal. The referee had a look on video to check for a foul and gave it the okay.
Then after five minutes of injury time Bruno got onto the end of a Joe Willock cross and scored Newcastle’s second.
The performance prompted the Chronicle’s Chief Newcastle United writer Lee Ryder to give Bruno 10 out of 10 for the second match in a row. The previous 10 was for the 1-0 win over Wolves.
Ryder wrote of Bruno’s performance against Leicester: “His never say die attitude won the day. Two goals and some fantastic passing movement.”
