Nigeria international, Wilfred Ndidi dominated the midfield and was arguably one of the best players on the night as Leicester City in devastating form thrashed 10 man Southampton 9-0 in the Premier League.

Leicester also created a history at the St Mary’s Stadium for the biggest away win in the Premier League.

The last time such result was recorded was 25 years ago when Manchester United beat Ipswich Town by the same scoreline.

The Forces have never won more than 5-0 away in the English top flight, the previous record result coming in 1970 against Charlton Athletic.

Southampton were reduced to ten men when Ryan Bertrand was sent off for a tackle on Ayoze Perez in the 12th minute.

The Nigeria international Ndidi had 90 touches of the ball, won one aerial duel, made one key pass, won seven tackles, had one interception, one clearance and committed three fouls.

He was also involved in the build up to the first goal scored by Leicester left back Ben Chilwell.

Ndidi has thus played in nine of Leicester City’s ten Premier League matches so far this season.

Chilwell opened floodgate with Ayoze Perez scoring in the 19th, 39th and 57th minutes while Jamie Vardy also bagged a hat-trick by scoring in the 45th, 58th and 90th minutes.

Youri Tielemans was on target in the 17th minute and James Maddison netted a fabulous free-kick to make it 8-0 with five minutes left on the clock.

Leicester are now second in the Premier League table with 20 points.
