FT 

I'm off to rock gently in a corner on behalf of Southampton fans everywhere, we'll be back with more Premier League coverage tomorrow.

90+3' 

That's it, the final whistle. There have been some ugly scenes tonight at St Mary's. 9-0 to Leicester City.

90+3' 

GOAL! Vardy converts the penalty. a hat-trick for him to give Leicester a record-breaking score tonight.

90+3' 

Vardy steps up to the spot.

90+3' 

Oh dear lord. That's going to be a penalty for Jamie Vardy after he is brought down in the area.

90+1' 

Just two more minutes of this torture to continue, and Jamie Vardy will not rest until he gets his hat-trick.

87' 
87' 

The good news for Southampton is that they don't have to endure this for much longer.

85' 

GOAL! Maddison fires over the wall into the back of the net. Textbook stuff and that's 8-0. EIGHT NIL.

84' 

Jamie Vardy is brought down by a bit of a hip-barge on the edge of the box and that'll be a free kick for Leicester, thank you very much. James Maddison will take it.

82' 

Brendan Rogers has admitted defeat - by the weather only, you understand - and put his coat on.

81' 

Chilwell thinks he might get Leicester's eighth goal, after a the side wait it out, passing around to create space. After a solid build up, the finish isn't quite there.

77' 

Southampton have another opportunity in the box but they are making a meal out of it.

76' 

Southampton take a free kick from around 30 yards out. it's headed away by the defensive wall and Leicester find themselves back in possession.

75' 

And that's his last contribution of the match as he's brought off to be replaced by Demarai Gray. He'll no doubt be happy with that hat-trick.

74' 

Ayoze takes the ball on the edge of the box and sends it down the line to Vardy who can't quite get to it.

72' 

Harvey Barnes - who has had a great night, by the way - comes off now to make way for Marc Albrighton for the final 20 minutes.

70' 

Another substitution for Southampton. Armgstrong comes on for Vallery.

70' 

Redmond fires at the goal and Schmeichel leaps to save it. Probably his greatest/only significant test of the night.

69' 

Ward-Prowse has a go on the edge of the box, but it is easily blocked.

67' 

Maybe more like 25. Nonethless, it fires over the defensive wall and straight into the arms of Schmeichel.

67' 

Not really sure what that is on the edge of the Southampton box - I'll call it a bundle, if you remember those from school. Free kick to the Saints about 30 yeards out.

63' 

We've almost 30 minutes still to play, guys.

62' 

The sight of the Southampton fans standing in defiance against this embarrassment is actually pretty harrowing.

58' 

GOAL! A second for Jamie Vardy just moments later as he jumps up to head the ball in. This is a horror show. 7-0 to Leicester.

57' 

GOAL! And just as I'm typing "Leicester look dangerous again". Ayoze comes in off the line to control the ball with his chest, and fire it in the back of the net. That's a hat-trick for him and a sixth goal for leicester.

57' 

Southampton appeal for a free kick on the edge of the box, but it is not given...

54' 

Leicester may not have added to their goal tally yet so far, but it has been the Foxes on the attack again. It's relentless for Southampton.

50' 

The weather hasn't improved and there are quite a few empty seats at St Mary's now.

46' 

A couple of substitutions have been made by struggling Southampton as Danso replaces Vestergaard and Stephens comes on for Ings.

46' 

We're back underway at St Mary's and the Saints will be praying indeed for a kinder second half.

HT 

Pretty much sums it up...

45+2' 

The crowd boos as the whistle goes. Horrible stuff for Southampton as the visitors go 5-0 up in the first half.

45+2' 

A torturous two minutes of additional time will be played in this half.

45' 

GOAL! The ball finds it's way to Jamie Vardy who is waiting in the box, after some pretty clumsy defensive work by Southampton. He controls the ball and strikes with the second touch to reach the net. 5-0

44' 

Barnes is back in the box causing problems, he's vastly outnumbered by red and white shirts, but he still looks menacing.

41' 

Southampton go 4-0 down inside the first half. Their fans are doing incredibly well to keep the noise levels up, under horrific circumstances.

40' 

GOAL! Ayoze recieves the ball from Chilwell - again - after he runs in on the far corner of the box and taps it in the net.

36' 

It's Danny Ings' turn to be disappointed now as he shoots just over the bar for Southampton.

35' 

EEEEK! Close there for leicester but Gunn mnages to put the brakes on Barnes. COuld easily have been 4-0 there.

32' 

Some nice movement there by Southampton as Redmond goes on the counter-attack. he passes wide to Ings who controls it well, and there's an opportunity there for Southampton, but Schmeichel pounces on the ball.

28' 

It's terrible passing by Southampton, tonight. If I were being generous I'd say the weather was affecting them, but it does seem to be rather one-sided.

26' 

Southampton enjoy a brief spell in attack but it doesn't take much for leicester to regain possession.

24' 

Finally, Gunn manages a save. The ball has barely left Southampton's box in the last 10 minutes or so.

22' 
19' 

GOAL! Leicester again! This time it's Ayoze. Oh dear Southampton. 3-0

17' 

GOAL! Tielemans finds the back of the net with a fantastic strike in the centre of a box after latching on to a cross from Barnes.2-0 to the visitors.

15' 

And Leicester are hammering Southampton's depleted defence. This is going to be a horrible night for the home side, I predict.

12'

Southampton's situation has gone from bad to worse as Ryan Betrand is sent off in the 12th minute.

12' 

However... VAR is in play, thanks to a dodgy tackle by Bertrand in the build up.

11' 

GOAL! Leicester take the early lead after Chilwell scores from a rebound off the keeper. 1-0 to the visitors.

9' 

Barnes takes delivery of the ball from Chilwell and he's going for the far corner, but it's no good. Looked like a decent chance there.

8' 

They finally make it and at the second time of asking, Southampton intercept. There's a brief run by Redmond before he's shut down.

7' 

So far Leicester have had the bulk of possession, but Southampton are holding them at arm's length as they've struggled to penetrate that final third.

6' 

It's a miserable evening on the south coast, with driving rain and howling wind. I wouldn't much fancy being out there tonight.

3' 

Bertrand takes a throw in for the Saints, but Leicester find they can intercept the ball rather too easily there.

2' 

Leicester make an early charge at the goal but Bertrand quells the threat on the edge of the area.

1' 

There's the whistle and we're off at St Mary's.

20:00 
19:55 

We're just moments from kick off at St Mary's now

19:50 

But while they find themselves at the other end of the table, Southampton's top-scorer Danny Ings has claimed the same number.

19:45 

Leicester have been enjoying something of a rennaissance under Brendan Rodgers and have shown some strong attacking prowess - you'd expect to see more of that tonight against a side such as Southampton. Jamie Vardy has netted six goals in the club's first nine games of the season.

19:35 

At the other end of the table, the picture is bleak for Southampton who find themselves just shy of the relegation zone in 17th with just eight points and just two goals keeping them above 18th place Newcastle.

19:25 

Leicester will no doubt have an added incentive to win tonight's match as they commemorate a year since the death of their former owner Vichai Srivaddhanaprabha along with four others on a helicopter crash. The club marked the anniversary at their home fixture last week against Burnley.

19:15 

So what does tonight's clash actually mean? Well, Leicester could actually leapfrog Manchester City go second in the league if they beat Southampton.

19:10 

And would you believe it, we have two unchanged starting XI's tonight. Southampton feild the same line-up that drew with Wolves in their last league outing, while Leicester sticks with the side that beat Burnley 2-1 in the last league match they played.
