Southampton 0-9 Leicester: Foxes set Premier League record

Leicester City set the record for the biggest away Premier League win with an incredible 9-0 win away to 10-man Southampton on Friday night.

The scoreline ties the all-time Premier League record margin of victory with Manchester United 9-0 Ipswich Town in March 1995 at Old Trafford.

Brendan Rodgers’ side took the lead at St Mary’s through left-back Ben Chilwell on 10 minutes as the hosts were reduced to 10 men for Ryan Bertrand’s reckless challenge on Ayoze Perez in the build up to the opener.

Youri Tielemans essentially killed the game off by making it 2-0 on 17 minutes before Perez scored his first only two minutes later. Southampton fans were already exiting the stadium at this point.

The Saints were able to hold up for the next 20 minutes before Perez scored his second and Jamie Vardy his first just before half-time.

Ayoze Perez completed his hat-trick 12 minutes after the break before Vardy added his second only 60 seconds later.

Leicester did not score their eighth until James Maddison scored with five minutes left on the clock. The joint-record Premier League win was complete in stoppage time when Jamie Vardy completed his hat-trick by winning and converting a penalty.

The previous record margin of victory by an away team in the Premier League was Nottingham Forest 1-8 Manchester United at the City Ground in February 1999.
