Leicester City have equalled the biggest-ever Premier League victory after crushing 10-man Southampton 9-0 at St Mary's.

The result matches Manchester United's 9-0 win against Ipswich in 1995.

Jamie Vardy and Ayoze Perez both scored hat-tricks on a terrible night for Southampton, who had Ryan Bertrand sent off for dangerous tackle.

On the weekend of the one-year anniversary of the late Vichai Srivaddhanaprabha's death, Leicester paid tribute to their owner with a truly devastating performance.

It meant Leicester became only the second team to lead by five goals away from home at half time in Premier League history, but they weren't done there.

Southampton will drop into the bottom three after a huge blow to their goal difference, with Newcastle, Norwich City and Watford still to play. Leicester, meanwhile, climb to second.
