Jamie Vardy equalled the Premier League record for consecutive goals by scoring in a 10th successive match as Leicester beat Newcastle to go top of the table.
Vardy scored when he latched on to a Leonardo Ulloa pass, cut inside Moussa Sissoko and drilled in a low shot.
Newcastle barely registered a threat and let in a second when Ulloa headed in a Riyad Mahrez cross.
Shinji Okazaki bundled in a third after Danny Simpson’s shot was saved.
The win was Leicester’s fourth in a row in the league and took them top as they leapfrogged Manchester City, who lost at home to Liverpool, and Arsenal, who were beaten at West Brom.
Vardy’s effort meant he equalled former Manchester United forward Ruud van Nistelrooy’s tally of successive goals, with the Dutchman also scoring his 10th at St James’ Park back in 2003.
