It was only 20 minutes into the game when Ademola Lookman scored the opener for Leicester City. The Magpies playmaker canceled out the goal and in the injury time of the second half, he sealed his side a win.

Guimaraes registered his first goal on home soil since making a move to the club from Lyon. The Selecao international admitted that he is keen on becoming a legacy in the north east.

"I don't have words,"

Guimaraes told Newcastle's NUTV channel at full-time.

"It was incredible [to] score my first goal here. The win was incredible. I'm feeling good. I need to speak my thanks to the fans, because the energy was incredible today.

"I am very happy over here. We have settled in really well. I always wanted to play in the Premier League - it's been a dream of mine, so playing for Newcastle has been very pleasurable.

"I want to be a legend here. It's special for me. I don't have words."

The former Lyon payer gave his side a major boost when it comes to their hope of survival in the Premier League.

Under the reign of Howe and with the transforming January transfer window, the Magpies have turned things around in form, climbing up above the relegation zone with six games left in the league.

Although they are not yet assured of being clear, they can breathe easier having grabbed three points.
