This triumph edges Leicester closer to securing promotion back to the Premier League, requiring just one more win to seal their return to the top flight.

Abdul Fatawu stole the spotlight with a remarkable hat-trick, supported by goals from Ndidi and Jamie Vardy in a one-sided affair.

Leicester's path to promotion now hinges on their upcoming clash against Preston, where a victory would guarantee their place in the Premier League next season.

In contrast, Southampton's aspirations for automatic promotion have been significantly dimmed by this defeat, leaving them facing the prospect of a playoff.

The breakthrough moment for Leicester occurred in the 25th minute, as Fatawu calmly slotted home a pass from Kiernan Dewsbury-Hall, despite Southampton's protests of a foul in the build-up.

Ndidi extended Leicester's advantage just after the hour mark, nodding in a cross from Stephy Mavididi to firmly put the game out of Southampton's reach.

It's worth noting that Ndidi also found the net in their previous match against West Brom last Saturday.

Meanwhile, Fatawu continued to shine, adding a sensational second goal with a curling effort from the edge of the box before assisting Vardy for Leicester's fourth.

The night culminated in Fatawu completing his hat-trick with a fine finish from Vardy's cross, sealing a resounding victory for Leicester City.
