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

Leicester City have beaten Southampton 9-0 in the English Premier League.

Ayoze Perez and Jamie Vardy hit hat-tricks as rampant Leicester demolished 10-man Southampton 9-0 to equal the biggest win in Premier League history.

This victory is the best away win in the history of the English Premier League, with Manchester United beating Ipswich 9-0 at the Old Trafford, in 1995

Brendan Rodgers’ impressive Foxes registered five first-half goals at St Mary’s en route to inflicting the heaviest defeat in Saints’ 134-year existence and move second in the table.

Strikes from Ben Chilwell, Youri Tielemans and James Maddison completed an astonishing scoreline as City emulated Manchester United’s 9-0 win over Ipswich in March 1995.

During a history-making night on the south coast, Saints defender Ryan Bertrand became the first top-flight player sent off following a VAR review after a dangerous lunge at Perez in the build-up to Chilwell’s 10th-minute opener.

The early dismissal undoubtedly had a significant impact on the home side’s fortunes but it could not excuse the embarrassing – and record-breaking – capitulation which followed.

Southampton’s previous worst defeats on home soil were 6-0 reversals to Plymouth in 1931 and Brentford in 1959. The thumping loss also surpassed three 8-0 defeats on the road, the most recent of which came against Everton in 1971.
