One lucky Sportsbet customer struck gold last weekend, incredibly backing Leicester City to beat Southampton by a 9-0 scoreline.

The punter placed $10 on the Foxes at $201 to win by the nine-goal margin for a cool $2010 collect.

Leicester's thrashing equalled the Premier League's biggest victory record set by Manchester United in 1995, with Andy Cole scoring five goals as the Red Devils smashed Ipswich Town.

With Southampton's plummetting into the relegation zone after the defeat, their coach Ralph Hasenhuttl saw his stocks dramatically fall as he became the $2.50 favourite to be the next Premier League managed axed.

Manchester United boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has drifted out to $15 , along with Tottenham boss Maurico Pochettino, and fourth in line behind Hasenhuttl, Marco Silva ( $4 ) and Unai Emery ( $6 ).

Emery has been under significant pressure with Arsenal's inconsistent form and shortened significantly in the sack race after the 2-2 draw at home against Crystal Palace.

The Gunners lost all three points after a dodgy VAR decision by Australian referee Jarred Gillet, however Sportsbet punters were not left in the cold.

The betting agency refunded 575 win-draw-win bets on Arsenal in response to the controversial call that decided the match.
