Jamie Vardy scored twice as Leicester thrashed ten-man Newcastle 5-0 to climb to third in the Premier League.
Ricardo Pereira opened the scoring in the 16th minute with his second goal in as many games, before Isaac Hayden was given his marching orders for a poor challenge on Dennis Praet.
Leicester took full advantage of the extra man in the second-half with Vardy completing a brace, Paul Dummett diverting Praet’s cross into his own net and Wilfred Ndidi completing the rout late on.
It heaps the pressure on Newcastle boss Steve Bruce, who has won just one of his first seven games in charge.
Jamie Vardy has scored 14 goals in 17 appearances under Brendan RodgersVardy was the principle beneficiary as he found the net twice, either side of Paul Dummett’s unfortunate own goal, before Wilfred Ndidi struck late on as Leicester claimed their fourth win from their last five top-flight matches.
Leicester have been tipped to break into the top-six this season and, though stiffer tests await, they were ruthless against the only side to defeat them at home since Brendan Rodgers took charge in February.
Much has changed for Newcastle since a 1-0 win on their last visit to the King Power Stadium, not least that their goal-scorer in that fixture, Ayoze Perez, now plays for Leicester following a £30million summer switch.
The forward made a bright start in the pouring rain and had a hand in Portuguese full-back Pereira’s opener, playing his part in Newcastle sinking to their fourth defeat in seven fixtures, keeping them second bottom in the standings and leading to further scrutiny of Bruce’s position.
Perez had an opportunity to silence the travelling supporters who jeered his name as the teams were announced but the Spaniard shot tamely at Martin Dubravka after a cut back from Harvey Barnes in the first couple of minutes.
However, after Yoshinori Muto got his legs in a tangle trying to make contact with Hayden’s cross-cum-shot in a rare sight at goal for Newcastle, Perez played a minor role in Leicester’s 16-minute opener.
Having exchanged passes with the summer signing on halfway, Pereira took advantage of Newcastle’s defence backing away to drive towards the edge of the area before drilling a low effort with his weaker left foot beyond Dubravka.
Ben Chilwell could have doubled Leicester’s lead moments later but Dubravka got a hand to his attempted dink before the England full-back saw his follow-up cleared off the line by Newcastle captain Jamaal Lascelles.
Newcastle had beaten Leicester on their last two visits to the midlands but hopes of a hat-trick receded when Hayden was given a straight red card for a reckless follow through on Dennis Praet in a 50-50 challenge.
