Leicester City set a new record on Friday night, procuring the largest away win in Premier League history with a 9-0 destruction of Southampton. The Foxes were in rampant mood at St Mary’s capitalising on the red card for Ryan Bertrand only 12 minutes into fully demolish their hosts around the south shore. You will find hat-tricks such as Ayoze Perez and Jamie Vardy, while Ben Chilwell, Youri Tielemans and James Maddison also got on the score sheet. The unbelievable result is the largest away win, but not just in the Premier League, but at prime airport. 9-0 also matched the record for its largest ever Premier League triumph, together with Manchester United also beating Ipswich 9-0 back in March 1995. No team had scored nine goals away from home in the Premier League earlier, with just 1 side-by-side on the street ahead, when Manchester United hammered Nottingham Forest 8-1 in the City Ground in 1999.
Southampton had never even conceded seven goals in a Premier League game before, but that record has been blown out of the water. Only once before in the Premier League have two players scored a hat-trick for the same team, with Robert Pires and Jermaine Pennant both netting three times for Arsenal, also against Southampton in 2003.
😲 Still thinking about that Harvey Barnes assist…
