Newcastle United drew with Cardiff City in the Premier League on Saturday.

That was the closest the visitors came to reducing the deficit as the 10 men of Leicester saw out six minutes of stoppage time with little danger.

The red card eventually came in the 67th minute when Manquillo's replacement Isaac Hayden was sent off. Facing a newly-promoted side away from home early in a season is never easy, but they should have enough to get the job done.

Kenedy stepped up to take the spot-kick and in the last action of the game, Neil Etheridge became the hero, saving the penalty.

Joe Ralls did well to pick out the unmarked Zohore in the six-yard area, but the Dane wasted the chance as he steered his header well wide of the mark.

Newcastle replied nearly instantly with a chance of their own.

Neil Warnock's side began at a fast pace and nearly took the lead after seven minutes when keeper Martin Dubravka dawdled and Kenneth Zohore closed him down, only to see the ball ricochet to safety.

Kenedy was fortunate to escape a red card when he kicked out at Cardiff's Victor Camarasa right in front of referee Craig Pawson, who somehow appeared to miss the incident.

Famously a long-established favourite of his manager, Bamba will not have thanked Warnock for leaving him marooned in holding midfield in the loss to Bournemouth.

Then arrived a big moment in the game as half-time substitute put a big challenge in on Josh Murphy.

Leicester City have survived going down to ten men to secure a 2-0 win over Wolverhampton Wanderers in Saturday's Premier League encounter at the King Power Stadium.

The club's next four games will see them take on Cardiff City, Chelsea, Manchester City and Arsenal, in arguably one of their most hard stretches of the season when you include the Spurs game too.
