The Foxes thoroughly deserved their 2-0 success but Southampton disappointed with a fourth straight away loss which looks to have finally ended the Saints' hopes of catching Liverpool in fifth spot.

A month ago Leicester appeared set for a return to the second-tier League Championship after an eight-game winless run which included six defeats.

Now Nigel Pearson's side sits three places and three points above the relegation zone.
