Newcastle overcome Leicester with Guimaraes double

Published on: 17 April 2022

Bruno Guimaraes has now scored three goals since joining Newcastle in January

Bruno Guimaraes struck deep into stoppage time to give Newcastle victory over Leicester and edge the Magpies a step closer to Premier League survival.

The Brazilian midfielder cancelled out Ademola Lookman's opener on the half-hour mark before the two sides played out a strangely subdued second half.

But in the five minutes of added time, a low cross by substitute Joe Willock bounced up kindly for Guimaraes to snatch the winner with a diving header.
