Southampton 1-4 Leicester: Jamie Vardy scores after 21 seconds and Wilfred Ndidi slots home his third this season as Foxes return to top of the Championship... with Kamaldeen Sulemana sent off late on for hosts

Leicester are sitting pretty at the top of the Championship after another Friday night mauling at St Mary’s which was at times reminiscent of the 9-0 victory in 2019.

It would take some implosion for Southampton to match the farcical display almost four years ago but Russell Martin’s side looked intent on giving it a go with their defence repeatedly cut open by Enzo Maresca’s side. They have now conceded nine goals in two games.

They were behind after 21 seconds as Stephy Malvididi preyed on a ponderous Shea Charles to play a one two with Jamie Vardy who scored from the edge of the area.
