Pearson, talking to lcfc.com, was beaming with pride after Jamie Vardy, David Nugent and Leonardo Ulloa rattled the back of David De Gea's goals.  

“It’s nice to have three strikers scoring today as well – Leo to get another two – his all-round game I’m really pleased with but for him to continue to score is important." said Pearson.

“For Nuge to get off the mark is important and for Vards I thought his goal is just reward for the sort of performance he put in. 

“Whenever you’ve got pace in your side, no matter who you play against, is potential for causing people problems and we’ve certainly done that throughout the game today. 

“I’m really pleased with how we played and the result is a huge bonus for us.” 

Leicester City are in seventh position after five games in the English Premiership despite having had a tough start to life in the top flight.

The Foxes beat Manchester United and earned draws against both Arsenal and Everton.

Pearson will take his side to Selhurst Park to tackle Crystal Palace on Saturday, September 27.
