Toe Poke Daily: Leicester equal Premier League goal record ... and other mega scores

Craig Burley didn't mince his words on Leicester City's 9-0 drubbing of Southampton.

The Toe Poke Daily is here every day to bring you all the weirdest stories, quirkiest viral content and top trolling that the internet has to offer, all in one place.

Leicester City have a new record to add to their incredible achievements over the past few years. On Friday night, the 9-0 win over Southampton was the highest away victory every and also equalled Manchester United's record for the largest win in the Premier League: a 9-0 win at home against Ipswich Town in 1995.

Jamie Vardy and Ayoze Perez both had hat tricks, after Ryan Bertrand's red card saw Southampton down to 10 men, but goalkeeper Kasper Schmeichel had a special night as his father Peter was also in goal for United in the match against Ipswich, making them the only two keepers in Premier League history to keep a clean sheet as their teams scored nine goals.

Friday's nine-goal margin was something truly incredible but there have been a few other big scores in the Premier League over the years.

Here's some of the biggest margins of victory.

#Mbappe2020 has Liverpool fans dreaming

You'd be hard pressed to feel bad for Liverpool right now. The Champions League holders are six points clear atop the Premier League table and they've just won a High Court battle against current sponsor New Balance that allows Nike to become the club's new kit partner from May 30 next year.

And whether you feel bad for them or not, sometimes the rich do indeed get richer. Enter #Mbappe2020 as we connect some dots for you here. One of Nike's highest profile athletes is none other than Kylian Mbappe, which got folks on social media wondering if the PSG striker's next stop might be Anfield if the Reds do indeed partner with the Portland-based shoe and apparel giants.

The France international is already on the record as to who he'd pick in FIFA (hint it's not PSG).

Plus, there was an exchange between Liverpool boss and Mbappe admirer Jurgen Klopp when they met in the Champions League in 2018 that had the social media world buzzing.

So that's that then, right? Well maybe it's not quite that cut and dried, but it's surely something to keep the transfer pages buzzing and Liverpool fans dreaming until the summer window opens in 2020.

Pigue giving out his digits?

If you're thinking of checking out the newly formatted Davis Cup finals in tennis that debuts in Madrid in November under the guidance of Barcelona star Gerard Pique and are having trouble finding tickets, fear not: Just give the World Cup winner a call.

In a move that looks part promotional stunt for the annual event being put on by his investment group Kosmos, Pique appeared to share his number -- or someone's -- on social media. The response was unsurprisingly overwhelming to the tune of 7,000 calls and messages within minutes and 20,000 in all at last check.

And for one lucky caller, a shocked Real Madrid supporter, Pique even picked up and said "Do you want Davis Cup tickets?" The caller says, "Man, I don't believe it's you," but indeed it was as you can see below.

The rebranded event has not been met with entirely rosy reviews, with tennis legend Roger Federer questioning why a football player like Pique would be involved at all. And if fans on the ground don't take to Pique's new vision for the 119-year-old event, they'll surely know who to call.
