So you’ve probably heard by now that Leicester paddled Southampton 9-0 today (at St. Mary’s no less!). The 9 goals are the most ever in an away Premier League match.
In Leicester’s orgy of goals, Jamie Vardy recorded a hat-trick. He now has 9 for the season, which is half of his total from last season. Vardy’s 9 are tops in the EPL, one better than Sergio Aguero and Tammy Abraham. He also saw his Golden Boot odds jump to second best (behind Aguero) at +450 on DraftKings Sportsbook NJ.
Ayoze Perez also netted a hat-trick. Ben Chilwell, Youri Tielemans, and James Maddison also scored.
Vardy and Perez earned perfect 10 ratings from WhoScored. Also, in case you’re wondering what “lop-sided” looks like:
Leicester temporarily move to second in the Premier League table, one point ahead of Manchester City. The 9 goals puts their differential for the season at +17. That’s three better than game-in-hand Liverpool and three fewer than game-in-hand City.
