Newcastle overcome Leicester with Guimaraes double

Bruno Guimaraes of Newcastle United celebrates after scoring a goal to make it 2-1 during the Premier League match between Newcastle United and Leicester City at St. James Park on April 17, 2022 in Newcastle upon Tyne, United Kingdom.


Bruno Guimaraes struck deep into stoppage time to give Newcastle victory over Leicester and edge the Magpies a step closer to Premier League survival.

The Brazilian midfielder cancelled out Ademola Lookman's opener on the half-hour mark before the two sides played out a strangely subdued second half.

But in the five minutes of added time, a low cross by substitute Joe Willock bounced up kindly for Guimaraes to snatch the winner with a diving header.
