#2 Leicester City 9-0 Southampton – 25th October 2019
The man Jamie Vardy has been a warrior of cosmic proportions for the Foxes and he was a significant figure in Leicester’s solitary Premier League triumph. In a hapless evening for the Saints, Vardy and Perez blasted hattricks to surge the Foxes to an unassailable lead.
Chilwell, Tielemans and Maddison were the other scorers of the night for the Leicester where they ran riot against the Saints who have fallen from grace and their woes in the ongoing season were just given another cursed chapter after Bruno Fernandes found his way to the back of the net.
#3 Manchester United 9-0 Southampton – 3rd February 2021

In a contest where Southampton was depleted numerically in the very second minute, saw Manchester roaring loud as they had seven different scorers and one own goal to credit to their incredible rise.
Anthony Martial scored a brace while AWB, Marcus Rashford, Cavani, McTominay, Fernandes and Daniel James found the back of the net while Jan Bednarek scored the own goal that completed the rout of the Saints.
