Leicester City has piled the misery onto relegation-threatened Newcastle United.
The Foxes, who are hosting the Magpies at the King Power Stadium on Sunday afternoon, have taken a crucial first-half lead.
Defender Jamaal Lascelles appeared to bring down attacking midfielder James Maddison with referee Peter Bankes quick to point to the spot.
Stepping up to take the spot-kick was midfielder Youri Tielemans who did a wonderful job of remaining calm under pressure.
Having successfully converted the spot-kick, the Belgium international has now given Brendan Rodgers’ side an important 1-0 lead. However, with the second half still to come, it is all to play for.
