Shinji Okazaki's overhead kick gave leader Leicester a 1-0 victory over Newcastle on Monday, a goal as spectacular as his team's improbable Premier League title challenge.

As Leicester restored its five-point lead at the summit over Tottenham, Rafa Benitez made a losing start to his reign as Newcastle manager.

Newcastle is facing relegation, one point from safety, while Leicester is on track for a first-ever league title a year after being bottom of the standings before narrowly avoiding the drop.

Okazaki's fifth goal of the league campaign came in the 25th minute at the King Power Stadium, which looks set to host Champions League football for the first time next season.
