Leicester City match Manchester United's record of winning 9-0: the biggest wins in Premier League history - in pictures

Following Leicester City's huge win at St Mary's, we delve back into the archives to look at the biggest winning margins in the league's history

Leicester City recorded the biggest ever English top-flight away win by beating 10-man Southampton 9-0 at St Mary’s to move up to second place in the Premier League.

The biggest margin of victory on the road previously was eight goals, a joint record held by three clubs.

It was also the first time a team had scored nine away goals in the Premier League and equalled Manchester United's record 9-0 Premier League win achieved at home to Ipswich Town 24 years ago.

Leicester went into the interval 5-0 up thanks to goals from Ben Chilwell, Youri Tielemans, an Ayoze Perez double and the first of Jamie Vardy's three strikes.

James Maddison's goal on 85 minutes was sandwiched in between two more Vardy goals, the third a penalty in the fourth minute of added time to complete his hat-trick.

It is the second time the Premier League has seen a lop-sided scoreline this term

The result matched Manchester United's 9-0 thumping of Ipswich Town on March 4, when Andy Cole scored five of United's goals at Old Trafford.

Wigan Athletic are the only other team to concede nine goals in a Premier League match, with Jermain Defoe's quintet strikes helping Spurs to a 9-1 win at White Hart Lane in November 2009.

Manchester City feature twice in the big wins hall of fame after hammering Watford 8-0 in September. City were also on the receiving end of a disaster in May 2008, when they were beaten 8-1 away to Middlesbrough.

Above is a picture gallery of the biggest winning margins in Premier League history.
