Opinion: 3 things we learned in Premier League this weekend
With the conclusion of Sunday's fixtures, theScore takes a look back at what happened in the English top flight this weekend. Editor’s note: The opinions in this article are the author’s, as published by our content partner, and do not necessarily represent the views of MSN or Microsoft.
Shelvey opened the scoring when he received the ball just outside the area at the end of a sweeping move up the left flank, taking a touch to elude Leicester defender Harry Maguire before rifling home the ball in the 18th minute.
Winger Riyad Mahrez thought he had won a penalty when he went down in the box shortly before halftime but referee Stuart Attwell waved away the appeals of the Leicester players.
A defensive mix-up between Maguire and Wes Morgan allowed Spanish playmaker Perez to nip in and lob the ball over Kasper Schmeichel to make it 2-0, and though Jamie Vardy pulled back a late goal for Leicester, Newcastle held on to win.
The victory puts Newcastle in 10th place on 38 points, 10 points off the drop zone, while Leicester are eighth on 43. (Reporting by Philip O'Connor; Editing by Clare Fallon)
