Newcastle United progressed to the Carabao Cup semi-final with a 2-0 win over Leicester City - here are the player ratings from the match

After a goalless first half which saw Newcastle miss several opportunities to score, the hosts finally took the lead through Dan Burn. The left-back burst forward to net his first goal for the club in front of the Gallowgate End.

Joelinton then doubled United’s lead in the 72nd minute with a neat finish from Miguel Almiron’s well-weighted pass.

It’s the first time Newcastle have reached the semi-final of the League Cup since 1976.
