A first Leicester City win of the season alleviates pressure on manager Brendan Rodgers as they ended a run of six consecutive league defeats against Nottingham Forest on Monday night.
The Foxes produced a dominant display to thrash the newly-promoted side in game-week nine of the 2022/23 Premier League season.
James Maddison brought up his half-century of goals in the dark-blue of Leicester as the hosts impressive first-half performance put them out of sight of their east-midlands rival.
An intuitive back-heel finish from Patson Daka and a curling Harvey Barnes effort added to the Englishman’s early damage as Rodgers’ men cruised to a 4-0 victory.
The victory suppresses recent talk that Rodgers may not be the right man for the job and his men will now be looking to kick on from Monday’s result and turn around their early-season woes.
The loss sees Steve Cooper’s men slump to the bottom of the Premier League table after a run of five successive defeats.
The Foxes travel to the south-coast for their next fixture to face Bournemouth whilst Forest host Aston Villa at the City Ground.
