Raúl Uche Rubio, Bartosz Kapustka and Layton Ndukwu (2) found the net for the Foxes as they doubled their Premier League 2 points tally to climb to second place on Monday evening.

Reflecting on the result at full-time, Beaglehole said: “It reminded me of last season because there wasn’t many occasions last season when we didn’t play exciting football like that.

“We created chances, scored some wonderful goals, and we started very well and we had a settled side, a group of players who showed fluidity and organisation.

“I was very impressed with Layton, there is no doubting his ability, he has a wonderful touch and he’s come up with the end product tonight after hitting the woodwork a few times.”

Evaluating the performance overall, Beaglehole added: “It was a really good performance and I really enjoyed watching them play tonight, I said that to them in the changing room.

“Everybody who saw the games down here last season enjoyed watching them play and we played with a lot of class, especially in the second half, as we turned the screw.

“Blackburn are very organised so we’ve beaten a good side and we’ve beaten them comfortably which is very pleasing.”
