Alan Shearer has taken to Twitter to give his reaction to Newcastle United’s defeat to Leicester City on Wednesday.
Newcastle suffered a 3-0 defeat at the hands of Leicester at home in the Premier League.
Ayoze Perez put the Foxes in the lead at St. James’ Park after 36 minutes, and James Maddison doubled the advantage for Brendan Rodgers’s side just three minutes later.
Hamza Choudhury wrapped up the scoring for the visiting team in the 87th minute.
Newcastle legend Shearer was following the match, and he has given his take on the final result on Twitter, and so has former Leicester striker Gary Lineker.
