Newcastle close to EPL safety after stunning Leicester 4-2

LEICESTER, England (AP) — Newcastle has stunned Leicester 4-2 to inch closer to survival in the English Premier League and dealt a potentially damaging blow to the Foxes’ Champions League hopes. Callum Wilson struck twice to all but secure the Magpies’ Premier League status. They are one point from safety. Caglar Soyuncu’s error gifted Joe Willock the opener, then Paul Dummett’s first goal in more than five years doubled the visitors’ lead. Wilson’s second-half brace lifted the Magpies to 13th place. Marc Albrighton and Kelechi Iheanacho scored late for Leicester. The Foxes remain third but have opened the door for Chelsea and West Ham in the race to finish in the top four.
