Newcastle scored the opening goal through Jonjo Shelvey in the 18th minute. After the break, Ayoze Perez scored a fantastic goal to give Benitez’s side a healthy 2-0 lead.
Jamie Vardy pulled one back for the home side in the 84th minute to set up a nervy ending but the Newcastle defence stayed resolute and kept the scoreline intact.
Newcastle managed only 34% possession, but they registered four shots on target, and took their chances well which made the difference in the end.
With this result, Newcastle have moved to 10th in the Premier League.
