"It's hard to break down a team like that, it's an area we will get better at", Rodgers said after his side's four-game winning run ended.

"There are lots of things for us to work on and analyse and we will be better for it".

Leicester remain in seventh place, tied on points with Wolverhampton Wanderers having played two games more.

"That's what you have to do, otherwise you are going to be even lower in the Premier League and we would have been fighting relegation". The players have been first class snice I came here but if you're not quite on it a result like this can happen. "But we came here and got the three points".

Afterwards boss Benitez, whose contract runs out at the end of the season, hinted he is ready to stay now safety is virtually assured.

Despite being put under pressure in the latter stages of the game, Newcastle held firm to claim the points.

- This was Leicester City's eighth home league defeat of the campaign, their most in a Premier League season at the King Power Stadium since it opened in 2002.

"Definitely, that's how I feel", said Perez.

"You have to adapt yourself to what the manager wants".

For all Leicester's pretty passes they did not cause Dubravka many problems, but Rodgers may not be too concerned about the prospect of missing out on Europa League qualification.

"Obviously winning makes everything easier but it's still something the manager and the club have to sort out".

The win is made all the better by the fact that Leicester had won their last four games but had limited chances to score this evening. They began it very poorly and were rooted at the bottom of the table at one stage, but slowly and surely they eased themselves out of the danger zone and the longer the season has gone on, the better the football they have played.

"It's just time, it's historic in this type of game where we've lost 1-0 and teams have camped in", he said.

Perez wasted a good chance to double Newcastle's lead early in the second half when he volleyed wide from Rondon's cross.
