Benitez the mastermind
If there’s any manager in the Premier League who is hugely underrated, it’s Rafa Benitez. The Spaniard is up there with the best in the league.
He has a track record of winning things around the world, having turned Valencia, Liverpool and Napoli into a force in the past.
The work he is now doing at Newcastle is stupendous. He showed in this game that he can out-tactic any other manager in the league.
The Magpies were brilliantly set up to counter Leicester, nullifying their threat and having enough to cause problems at the other end. Benitez remains a man who is working miracles with what’s at his disposal.
