NEWCASTLE, January 3
Leicester City moved up to third place in the Premier League as second-half goals by James Maddison and Youri Tielemans secured a 2-1 victory away at Newcastle United. Substitute Andy Carroll’s strike for the hosts set up a tense finale but Leicester were worthy winners.
They moved above Tottenham Hotspur with 32 points from 17 games played, one point behind co-leaders Liverpool and Manchester United, who have played one game less.
A brace from Alexandre Lacazette gave Arsenal their third league win in a row as they beat West Bromwich Albion 4-0 in snowy conditions on Saturday.
Meanwhile, Manchester City defender Eric Garcia and a staff member have tested positive for Covid-19.
