Newcastle secures top-4 after 0-0 with Leicester

Following a corner kick, Newcastle United's Bruno Guimaraes sees his header smash off the right post.

Following a 0-0 draw at home to struggling Leicester City on Monday, which secured a top-four position in the Premier League, Newcastle United will return to Europe’s elite in the Champions League after a 20-year absence.

Although Newcastle dominated from the opening kickoff until the last whistle without scoring, it was not quite the triumphant home finale the supporters had hoped for. However, they did not really care because their dream of playing in the Champions League had finally come true.

Newcastle battled hard for a draw that kept their survival hopes just about still alive going into the last round of games on Sunday despite having 23 goal efforts to Leicester’s one and being denied three times by the woodwork.

With 70 points and one game left, Eddie Howe’s Newcastle are in third place, four points ahead of Liverpool in fifth with the same number of games left. With two games remaining, Manchester United is in fourth place with 69 points.

Leicester moved up a spot above Leeds United based on goal differential, but they remain in 18th position and must beat West Ham United on Sunday in order to move up, as well as hope that 17th-place Everton loses against Bournemouth.
