Leicester City celebrated its great escape in style, pouring forth goals while putting a stamp on QPR’s relegation to the Championship at King Power Stadium on Sunday.

Brand new England call-up Jamie Vardy scored in the 16th minute and fellow Foxes Marc Albrighton, Leonardo Ulloa and Esteban Cambiasso also scored in a 4-1 win.
