It is the first time City have won by five clear goals in the Premier League, while encounters with Queens Park Rangers, Derby County, Leeds United and Swansea City have also produced some significant results.
To celebrate the triumph for Brendan Rodgers’ men, we pick out all five of the Club’s biggest wins in the Premier League.
Derby County 0 Leicester City 4
26 April, 1998
Goals: Heskey 1, 8, Izzet 2, Marshall 15
Manager: Martin O’Neill
Emile Heskey scored twice during the convincing 4-0 triumph against Derby County.
Emile Heskey, aged just 20, scored twice at Pride Park, netting after just 85 seconds and then again in the eighth minute either side of a header from Muzzy Izzet. Already 3-0 up inside 10 minutes, Ian Marshall scored City’s fourth of the game with 15 minutes gone, which proved to be his 10th strike of the season and the 100th of his 14-year career at the time.
Leicester City 4 Leeds United 0
15 September, 2003
Goals: Nalis 20, Dickov 23, 83, Scowcroft 90
Manager: Micky Adams
Lilian Nalis' brilliant goal opened the scoring in a 4-0 win over Leeds United.
A 4-0 demolition of Leeds United began with a barnstormer from Lilian Nalis with 20 minutes on the clock in Leicester, while Paul Dickov’s double and an injury-time strike from James Scowcroft saw the Foxes register their first win of the 2003/04 campaign. Having previously been beaten by Chelsea and Aston Villa, a thumping triumph followed on Filbert Way for Micky Adams’ men.
Leicester City 5 Queens Park Rangers 1
24 May, 2015
Goals: Vardy 16, Albrighton 43, Ulloa 51, Cambiasso 52, Kramarić 86
Manager: Nigel Pearson
Esteban Cambiasso became a cult figure during his only season as a Fox.
Many would have billed City’s final game of the season against Queens Park Rangers as a vital fixture in the 2014/15 relegation fight, but Leicester’s goalless draw at Sunderland secured their Premier League status a game prior. That led to a fine performance against the London outfit, as five separate goalscorers helped Nigel Pearson’s side to a 5-1 triumph in Leicester, including Esteban Cambiasso, who found the net on his final appearance for the Club.
Leicester City 4 Swansea City 0
24 April, 2016
Goals: Mahrez 10, Ulloa 30, 60, Albrighton 85
Manager: Claudio Ranieri
The Algeria international attacker's 10th-minute goal initiated a superb performance against Swansea.
Without the suspended Jamie Vardy, striker Leonardo Ulloa stepped in to score a brilliant brace against Swansea City at King Power Stadium to move the Foxes within a win of the 2015/16 Premier League title. Riyad Mahrez’s early strike set the tone on Filbert Way, before Ulloa’s double and an effort from Marc Albrighton saw the Foxes record a 4-0 victory. A draw in their next game against Manchester United ultimately sealed the title to spark wild celebrations across the globe.
Leicester City 5 Newcastle United 0
29 September, 2019
Goals: Ricardo 16, Vardy 54, 64, Dummett o.g. 57, Ndidi 90
Manager: Brendan Rodgers
Scoring first gave the Foxes confidence to push on for more.
City’s biggest-ever Premier League win came at a rain-lashed King Power Stadium on Sunday afternoon, as they returned to third in England’s top-flight standings to register their fourth victory from seven 2019/20 outings. Ricardo Pereira’s superb low drive opened the scoring, before Isaac Hayden was dismissed just before the interval for the visitors. After the break, Vardy scored twice either side of Paul Dummett’s own goal, while Wilfred Ndidi’s well-taken effort rounded off the scoring on Filbert Way.
