Leicester manager Brendan Rodgers on Sky Sports: "I'm delighted with that. It was always going to be a tight game.
"We had some really good moments in first half but just failed with that final ball. In the second half we stayed strong defensively. Once we got the first goal it opened it up a little bit.
"The squad has been tremendous in terms of how they have coped with our European and league efforts. They showed really good capabilities in the game."
Newcastle boss Steve Bruce on Sky Sports: "We gave the ball away cheaply on both occasions and Leicester punished us.
"The one thing you don't want to do when you are having arguably your best spell after half-time is give the ball away. It's something we have to improve on.
"I didn't think we deserved to lose the game but we have been punished and caught on the counter-attack. It's what we want to do but we keep getting caught the other way."
