Newcastle spent just over £20m last summer - plus a further £20m in January - and manager Benitez, whose contract is set to expire at the end of the season, says they can "compete" with teams in the top half of the league by doing the "right things".

Salomon Rondon nearly gave Newcastle the lead midway through the first half with a ferocious 30-yard free-kick that cannoned back off the woodwork.

Martin Dubravka saved well after a solo run by Harvey Barnes and a right-footed strike by Ben Chilwell as Leicester tried to force the initiative early on, but it was the visitors who posed the greater threat on the counter attack - and Rondon's 15th-minute free-kick nearly brought spectacular reward.

Leicester manager Brendan Rodgers said: "It's hard to break down a team like that".

The Magpies had a chance to put the game to bed after Perez did brilliant to get past Ben Chilwell but Schmeichel made a smart save to keep his side in the game.

Vardy should have brought the Foxes level with ten minutes remaining after going clear on the left side of the box following a great pass from Youri Tielemans, but he looped his shot just over the bar as the Magpies held on for the win.
