Leicester boss Brendan Rodgers reacts after 9-0 win over Southampton.

“I was very pleased with our work rate,” says Rodgers.

Brendan Rodgers was absolutely pleased with how his Leicester City side tore Southampton apart on Friday night.

The Foxes recorded a 9-0 win against the Saints who were reduced to 10 men in the 12th minute at the St Mary’s, with Jamie Vardy and Ayoze Perez completing trebles.

The result moved Leicester City up to second spot in the Premier League standings, five points behind table-toppers Liverpool who play Spurs on Sunday.

"I was very pleased with our work rate. We scored some great goals and were very hungry tonight," Rodgers told the BBC.

"I'm very pleased with how we defended and how ruthless we were. I'm very proud to stand and be the manager of that team.

"We wanted to get the ball back quickly and attack again. A mark of good sides is you don't let up and we certainly did that in the second half.

"We were ruthlessly simple in our game. When you're so many goals up, you can easily slow and lose focus. To be a top team you must be clinical."

Brendan Rodgers' Foxes recorded the biggest win by an away side in Football League history, matching Sir Alex Ferguson’s Manchester United team that beat Ipswich 9-0 in 1995.
