Leicester won a third successive Premier League match as Ayoze Perez’s own goal gave them victory in a thrilling encounter with Newcastle.

The Spanish striker made his decisive contribution with four minutes to go, poking the ball into his own net as he tried to prevent Shinji Okazaki scoring.

The Foxes had made a terrible start as their hosts – roared on by a vocal home crowd following pre-game celebrations to mark the club’s 125th anniversary – took the lead in the sixth minute courtesy of Joselu’s close-range finish.

The visitors rallied quickly and restored parity when Mikel Merino’s loose pass gave them possession and began an attack that Riyad Mahrez ended with a superb 25-yard, left-footed drive into the top corner.

Demarai Gray put them in front after the break with a shot that found the net via a deflection off Florian Lejeune before Dwight Gayle levelled matters with a shot that came off Harry Maguire, but City would have the final word.

It was an excellent victory for Claude Puel’s side, who have now earned 17 points from eight league games since Craig Shakespeare was sacked in October – a run of form that has taken them up to eighth.

Newcastle, meanwhile, have taken just one point from their past seven matches and the cushion between them and the relegation zone is just two points.

    This is the second time when I got duplicate or non standard product. I got this memory card samsung Evo 16 GB with 10th grade.This the very slow card to copy or receiving data. I think its very cheap quality product . I did not use this card after ordering because my old mobile phone was not compatible with 16 GB . So when i got my new phone which was supporting 32 GB ,but this memory card works very slowly. Please return my product otherwise i will sue in consumer court. It took more than one hour to copy 2 GB data from my PC.
