WOLVERHAMPTON: Leicester City beat Wolverhampton Wanderers 4-0 in the premier league Sunday for their first points away from home this season to move up from the bottom of the table and out of the relegation zone.
Back-to-back wins propelled a clinical Leicester to 16th in the table while struggling wolves fell to a fifth defeat in six games to fall to 19th as home fans booed Steve Davis’ side at the final whistle.
Wolves started brightly but it was Leicester who drew the first blood when a clearance fell to skipper Youri Tielemans and the midfielder fired a volley from over 20 yards that deflected into the top corner.
A dynamic Leicester side then opened up the Wolves defense 11 minutes later as Harvey Barnes played a one-two pass with Kiernan Dewsbury-Hall before firing an angled shot past goalkeeper Jose Sa to double the lead.
Leicester top scorer James Maddison put the game to bed in the second half when he made room at the edge of the box before firing a low shot past Sa for his sixth goal of the season, leaving the deflated Wolves.
Brendan Rodgers’ side completed the rout by winning the ball from a sloppy Wolves side, with Timothy Castagne’s undisputed cross returned by Jamie Vardy as the 35-year-old striker netted his fourth and first of the season.
