Leicester City

Leicester use another quick start to throttle Newcastle

Leicester City Nigel Pearson says his team have a cushion from the relegation zone but with three games left anything can still happen.

Leicester's 3-0 demolition of nine-man Newcastle should have opened up a bit of breathing space at the bottom of the table, but Sunderland and Aston Villa had other ideas.

Leicester may have won five of their last six games but they are still only a point above the relegation zone. Burnley and Queens Park Rangers look goners and the third side demoted to the Championship will probably be the loser of the Sunderland-Leicester match on May 16.

What Leicester's clinical victory over the lifeless...

Leicester emerging from relegation scrap by dragging Newcastle into it

Leicester City Nigel Pearson says his team have a cushion from the relegation zone but with three games left anything can still happen.

LEICESTER, England -- No two teams can ever have fought a relegation battle in a more contrasting manner. Leicester City, written off by most observers at the beginning of April, laughed heartily in the face of the bookmakers and hurled themselves back into the fray, blood pumping and sabres raised. Newcastle United stood still and wept like a lost child in a supermarket. If the latter are to survive in disgrace while the former goes down swinging in the melee, then there is no justice in this...

The Relegation Scrap: Premier League battle enters the final straight

The ESPN FC crew discuss the clubs they believe are the most likely to be relegated at the end of the season.

With four rounds of games remaining in the Premier League season, Dale Johnson assesses the teams battling to avoid the drop.

NEWCASTLE UNITED
Position: 14th
Points: 35
Remaining fixtures: Leicester (a), West Brom (h), QPR (a), West Ham (h)

Newcastle are still very much the outsiders to go down at this stage, though a run of seven consecutive defeats -- their worst run of losses in the top flight for 38 years -- has left them on the verge of being dragged into trouble.

They travel to Leicester this...

Leicester City must beat back history and Newcastle to avoid the drop

Leicester City manager Nigel Pearson offered an apology to a reporter following a press conference in which he called the journalist an ostrich.

Newcastle have fond memories of coming to Leicester when in relegation trouble.

Back in May 1992, Kevin Keegan's side needed a victory at Filbert Street to beat the drop and, just when they looked down and out, Steve Walsh put through his own net to gift them the three points they required to stay in the old Division Two.

The Magpies faithful practically broke the shed-like away stand with their infectious celebrations. Newcastle then responded by winning 10 straight games the following season...

Method to Nigel Pearson's Leicester City madness overstepping bounds

Leicester City manager Nigel Pearson offered an apology to a reporter following a press conference in which he called the journalist an ostrich.

At first there were smiles and smirks. Then came a hanging, uncomfortable tension. Leicester City manager Nigel Pearson tearing a strip off a local journalist on Wednesday evening recalled those schooldays when a teacher tells off his pupils and goes far too far.

As Pearson departed, his victim, Ian Baker of Wardles Press Agency, recovered from being labelled "an ostrich," mocked for stuttering over a follow-up question and having his flexibility questioned, saying: "See you tomorrow, Nigel."...

LEICESTER, England -- Chelsea came back from 1-0 down to win 3-1 at Leicester and move to within one victory of their first Premier League title in five seasons. Here are three observations from King Power Stadium.

1. Chelsea move a step closer

Chelsea's coronation awaits on Sunday. A King's Road party can be staged since victory over Crystal Palace will take them beyond the target total of 83 points. "Boring, boring Chelsea" sang their fans on Wednesday night, in deepest irony. Five long years...
