Leicester City showed no mercy pumping NINE goals past 10-man Southampton in the pouring rain at St Mary’s on Friday night — the largest ever away win in top-flight history.

In a twist of events and a double whammy, Ryan Bertrand was sent off for a horrific challenge on Ayoze Perez following VAR confirmation after just 12 minutes during the build up for the opening goal.

It was done and dusted when Youri Tielemans and Ayoze Perez, who netted a hat-trick, scored 120 seconds apart and within 20 minutes.

[... And you weren’t going to read anymore than that because that was embarrassing.]
