No Pity As Leicester Beat Southampton 9:0

Leicester City on Friday equalled the biggest ever win in Premier League history with an 9-0 hammering of Southampton.

The Foxes went second in the table as they achieved the biggest away win in Premier League history, surpassing Man Utd’s 8-1 win at Nottingham Forest in 1999, but fell just short of bettering the Red Devils 9-0 win against Ipswich Town in 1995.

Vardy and Ayoze Perez both secured hat-tricks, with Ben Chilwell, Youri Tielemans and James Maddison also scoring as the Saints struggled to defend once Ryan Bertrand was sent off early in the first half.

Vardy, whose 94th minute penalty and third goal equalled the record, said defender Jonny Evans, formerly of Man Utd, made the team aware of what they could achieve once Perez scored the sixth in the 57th minute.

“Well we actually found out [about the record] at 6-0 when Jonny Evans came sprinting over, saying if we carry on doing what we’re doing we can get the record,” Vardy told Sky Sports.

“We’ve gone all the way to the end and managed to do it.

“It’s a great victory, a great performance for the lads and I’m absolutely buzzing for the fans.

“I think that was a complete performance. We know when you’ve got 10 men it can be made difficult but we also knew if we kept to our game plan we could cause them a lot of problems.

“Like you see from the result, credit to the boys, great win.
