Leicester destroy Southampton 9-0 to equal biggest win in Premier League history

Leicester City created history on Friday night as they dismantled Southampton 9-0 at St Mary’s.

The result equalled the record for the biggest win in Premier League history. It is also the biggest away win ever recorded in the Premier League.

Youri Tielemans doubled his side’s lead after 17 minutes and Ayoze Perez then got his first goal for his new club two minutes later.

A number of Southampton fans left the ground after the third goal and that proved to be a wise decision as Leicester piled on the misery.

The Spaniard got his second of the night, and Leicester’s fourth, after 39 minutes.

Watch Bertrand’s red card below:

And there was still time for Jamie Vardy to make it 5-0 just before half-time.

The English striker cut inside Maya Yoshida with some quick feet and then fired an unstoppable effort into the top corner.

Ralph Hasenhüttl would have wanted to limit the damage at half-time and he sent on Jack Stephens and Kevin Danso in place of Jannik Vestergaard and Danny Ings.

Leicester started to put their foot off the pedal after their seventh but still make it 8-0 with five minutes remaining.

James Maddison had not got himself on the scoresheet but did so in superb style as he curled in a free-kick from 20 yards out.

Leicester needed one more goal to equal the biggest win in Premier League history and they got it with the last kick of the game.

Vardy ran through on goal and was taken down by Jan Bednarek for a penalty.
