Southampton's 9-0 loss was a 'disaster' (1:00)

Craig Burley didn't mince his words on Leicester City's 9-0 drubbing of Southampton. (1:00)

Friday was supposed to be ho-hum Premier League fixture between Leicester and Southampton. What ensued was anything but ordinary as Leicester fired nine goals against 10-men Saints to break the record for biggest away margin of victory and equal the biggest ever margin of victory in the Premier League. Here is how social media reacted to the Foxes record-breaking hammering of Southampton at St Mary's.

That is because Leicester 'keeper Kasper's father Peter played in the other nine-goal win, manning the net for Man United against Ipswich Town in 1994-95. Crazy!

There was no shortage of cheek on Twitter after the result either as Man City took a dig at rivals Man United, Southampton kept it short and not so sweet and our own James Tyler chose to kick the Saints while they were down.

More United trolling: Former Fox Harry Maguire won't like this stat following his big-money move to Old Trafford...

Leicester seem proud of themselves and who can blame them after a historic night:

Former Fox and current BBC pundit Gary Lineker weighs in...

Welp, this tweet from Southampton's official twitter feed last week didn't age well...

At least Ipswich, who previous held the infamous record for worst defeat seem welcoming...
