Result: Leicester City thrashed by Paris Saint-Germain in Los Angeles friendly

Paris Saint-Germain beat Leicester City 4-0 in the United States to pick up their fifth pre-season victory on the bounce.

Premier League champions Leicester City have been humbled 4-0 by a clinical Paris Saint-Germain side at the StubHub Center in Los Angeles.

The Ligue 1 giants were ahead inside 26 minutes when Edinson Cavani sent Kasper Schmeichel the wrong way from the penalty spot after Daniel Amartey brought down Jonathan Ikone in the box.

Riyad Mahrez had a chance to bring City back on level terms moments later from a free kick, which last season's PFA Player of the Year fired on target for Alphonse Areola to push away.

Amartey headed wide from the corner, but PSG soon wrestled back control of the match and had a second as Ikone held off Wes Morgan and fired home when picked out by a deflected Thomas Meunier pass.

The third arrived shortly after the hour mark via the head of Lucas Moura, who got on the end of a Maxwell cross at the far post soon after Ahmed Musa wasted a fine opening at the other end.

Odsonne Edouard piled further misery on the Foxes in the closing stages, with the youngster simply outpacing the Leicester backline and bursting clean through to slot home number four.
