Leicester 5-1 QPR: Foxes thrash Ramsey’s relegated Rs
Only Important Events
And that's it from the King Power Stadium. Thank you for following the LIVE action of the Barclays Premier League - hope you've enjoyed it. I've been Jonathan Davies and until next time, have a very good Bank Holiday!
Leicester round off their season in emphatic style with a 5-1 demolition of their already-relegated opponents. QPR must now face like back in the Championship. When will we see them back in the top flight? Only time will tell...
FULL TIME - LEICESTER CITY 5 QUEENS PARK RANGERS 1
90'
Mr Oliver blows the whistle and brings the curtain down on the 2014/15 Premier League season.
88'
Leicester seem content now as they knock the ball around comfortably and look to run the clock down. What amazing character they have shown in these last few weeks of the season.
86'

Andrej Kramaric 

KRAMARIC MAKES IT FIVE!!! And it's a nightmare for Kpekawa seconds after coming on as a long punt from Schmeichel ricochets off him and falls to Kramaric, who smashes the ball home.

85'

Cole Kpekawa

Yoon Suk-Young

85'
QPR introduce more youth into the action as Cole Kpekawa is given his first appearance by Ramsey. Yun is the man to make way for the youngster.
83'
QPR are seeing their life in the Premier League fizzle out into nothing. It's been another helpless performance for the Rs and they need to show more character next season.
81'
Leicester are starting to enjoy themselves here as they knock the ball around in a very silky fashion. Even Morgan gets involved with a little drag back.
80'

Brandon Comley

Karl Henry

80'
QPR are making a change of their own and Henry is going off after a quiet afternoon. Replacing him is 19-year-old Brandon Comley for his debut. This is a chance for him to stake his claim for next season.
78'
Drinkwater was one of the stars in Leicester gaining promotion to the Premier League last season. He's done alright this season but his performances have been overshadowed by the brilliance of Cambiasso.
76'

Daniel Drinkwater

Esteban Cambiasso

76'
A huge roar rings around the King Power Stadium as Cambiasso goes off after another brilliant performance, to be replaced by Danny Drinkwater.
75'
ONUOHA SHOULD SCORE! At the other end, QPR could well have pulled another goal back. Barton's corner lands perfectly on the head of the right-back, who nods wide with the goal at his mercy.
73'
Mahrez is instrumental once more in getting Leicester forward. He beats a couple of players along the by-line, before flashing an effort right across the face of goal.
71'
The Argentine veteran was brought in to provide some experience for Leicester with his two Champions League winner's medals and he's certainly done that for them.
69'
CAMBIASSO HEADS WIDE! Albrighton delivers yet another brilliant delivery which is met by the central midfielder, who nods just off target with his back to goal.
67'
Leicester are not resting on their laurels as they continue to push for more goals. Morgan sees his header blocked by Onuoha, before Huth nods wide of the target.
65'

Andrej Kramaric

Jamie Vardy

65'
The King Power rises as Vardy makes way for the hosts. What a week it's been for him - his first England call-up and a goal today. He goes off to be replaced by record signing, Andrej Kramaric.
63'
JUST WIDE, CAMBIASSO! Mahrez is pulling the strings for Leicester as he displays some silky skills before crossing for the midfielder, whose volley isn't too far off target.
61'
It's advantage Newcastle United in the battle to avoid the drop! Moussa Sissoko has just headed them in front against West Ham United. Hull City now need to score against Manchester United and hope the Hammers peg Newcastle back if they're to survive.
59'
SIDE NETTING AGAIN FROM SCHLUPP! This game has burst into life in this second half as Leicester's Players' Player of the Year smashes an effort the wrong side of the post.
57'

Joey Barton 

57'

Charlie Austin 

QPR PULL ONE BACK AND IT'S AUSTIN, WHO ELSE?! Barton delivers a peach of a delivery from a free kick and Austin is on hand to steer a header home and give the visiting fans something to cheer.

54'
Well, Cambiasso was named Leicester's Player of the Year in the week and that was evidence as to why. What a strike that was for his fourth goal of the season.
52'

Esteban Cambiasso 

LEICESTER ARE FLYING AS CAMBIASSO MAKES IT FOUR!!! Dunne's headed clearance goes straight to Cambiasso, who takes a touch and thumps home number four. Two goals in a minute for the Foxes - they're running away with this game.

51'

Wes Morgan 

51'

Leonardo Ulloa 

THERE'S NO DENYING ULLOA THIS TIME! 3-0 LEICESTER! Albrighton's shot from a corner falls to Morgan and his shot bounces in off the Argentine. That's goal number 11 in the Premier League this season and his ninth here at the King Power.

50'
VITAL CLEARANCE FROM ONUOHA! The QPR right-back is in the right place at the right time to clear from under his own crossbar from Ulloa's goalbound header.
48'
GREGO-COX MUST SCORE! The youngster's name went up in lights on his first Premier League start as Phillips' deflected effort fell kindly for him, but he pulled his volley agonisingly wide of the goal. What a chance that was!
47'
Austin starts the second half with a bang as he tries his luck with a powerful effort from 30 yards. It is straight at Schmeichel though, who gathers comfortably.
46'

Ritchie De Laet

Marcin Wasilewski

46'
QPR get us going once again. Leicester have made a change at the break with Ritchie de Laet coming on in place of Wasilewski at the back.
The teams are back out and the second half is fast approaching.
How will QPR respond? They need to go for it in this second half and make the most of it. As touched upon earlier, they don't know when they will be back and you only have to look at the likes of Portsmouth to see that bouncing straight back up isn't all that easy.
Things are all going to plan for Leicester so far. They look good value for their two-goal lead and are on course to break the 40-point tally for the first time in the Premier League since the 2000/01 season.
HALF TIME - LEICESTER CITY 2 QUEENS PARK RANGERS 0
45 + 1'
With that, Mr Oliver blows his whistle to bring the first half to an end.
45'
JUST WIDE FROM ULLOA! Leicester almost make it three on the stroke of half time, but their top scorer cannot quite direct the ball inside the post.
43'

Jeff Schlupp 

43'

Marc Albrighton 

ALBRIGHTON DOUBLES LEICESTER'S LEAD! And he deserves that goal for his first-half performance. Schlupp latches onto a long kick downfield from Schmeichel before delivering a deep cross, which is met by Albrighton who fires home Leicester's second. 2-0!

42'
DUNNE MAKES ANOTHER CRUCIAL CHALLENGE! Mahrez leads the counter attack for Leicester as he surges forward and looks to release Vardy, who is thwarted by another important interception by Dunne.
40'
What about this for a scoreline? Stoke City 4 Liverpool 0! Former Red Charlie Adam has just put them four up at the Britannia, to add to earlier strikes from Jonathan Walters and a Mame Biram Diouf double.
38'
The visitors are starting to gain a foothold in this contest and so they should. It's been another poor campaign for them in the Premier League and they need to show their fans encouraging signs looking ahead to next season in the second tier.
36'
GREAT EFFORT BY PHILLIPS! There were shades of his strike against Crystal Palace as he has a go from distance, but sees this effort go whiskers wide of the target.
35'
FER GETS IN THE WAY OF HILL! The QPR defender meets a corner with his head but sees it hit his team mate before being hacked away by Leicester.
34'
This is Albrighton's 10th start of the season for the Foxes. It was only a couple of years ago that people wear tipping him to feature for England. With more performances like this next season, he may well be reconsidered.
32'
Albrighton is the architecht for Leicester once again as he stands up a lovely cross for Vardy, who sends a weak header straight into the grateful arms of McCarthy.
30'
OVER THE BAR FROM ULLOA! Albrighton nutmegs his opponent and sends in a brilliant cross from the right which reaches his striker, who cannot keep his volley down.
28'
END TO END STUFF HERE! Austin has an effort well blocked by Huth at one end, before Schlupp looks to release Vardy at the other but it just doesn't quite run for the hosts.
27'
This is the 60th meeting between the sides but just the fourth in the Premier League. Leicester have never beaten the Rs in the top flight and you can only wonder when they will get another chance to do so after today.
25'
GREAT INTERCEPTION FROM WASILEWSKI! Austin shows some good movement up front to latch onto a neat pass, but the defender is on hand to stop him getting a sniff at goal.
23'
Away from the King Power, Arsenal are in dreamland at the Emirates as they look to secure third place. Jack Wilshere has just put them 3-0 up to add to Theo Walcott's earlier double.
21'
It's Barton... who puts it into the wall! That really is such a waste from the midfielder. Goals have been so hard to come for QPR barring Austin this season and there was evidence as to why.
20'
QPR are aiming to respond quickly and they have a free kick right on the edge of the box after Austin is tripped. There are so many candidates for this set piece...
18'
The noise is deafening inside the stadium as the home fans turn it up another notch. They have come to party this afternoon and they are getting their wish at the moment.
16'

Jamie Vardy 

VARDY GIVES LEICESTER THE LEAD! It had to be him on the week of his England call-up! McCarthy can only parry Mahrez's vicious effort straight to Vardy, who makes no mistake in slotting home his fifth goal of the season.

14'
VITAL INTERCEPTION FROM DUNNE! Ulloa whips a very dangerous cross into the area and the QPR defender has to make an important clearance with Vardy waiting to pounce.
13'
The atmosphere really is electric at the King Power and the home fans have every right to be. Their team seemed dead and buried two months ago with just 19 points on the board, but in eight matches they have doubled that tally and are comfortably safe.
11'
NERVY MOMENT FOR SCHMEICHEL! Barton delivers a free kick after Austin was brought down, and the Leicester keeper has to watch it all the way over the crossbar.
9'
We have a break in play here as Mahrez slips and goes down holding his leg. He is currently receiving treatment from the physio but should be OK to continue.
8'
Elsewhere on this final day, there have already been goals for Arsenal and Burnley who have taken early leads against West Bromwich Albion and Aston Villa respectively.
6'
SIDE NETTING FROM SCHLUPP! The left winger latches onto a deep cross from Albrighton on the right flank, but cannot quite steer it inside the post.
4'
Michael Oliver is our referee this afternoon. This is his fourth Leicester appointment of the season and his first QPR game. The Hoops have never won a match he has taken charge of.
2'
SO CLOSE, ULLOA! Leicester come flying out of the blocks and almost take the lead within the opening two minutes, as Ulloa bends an effort just wide of the far post.
1'
OFF WE GO! Leicester get us underway sporting their new strip for next season.
The teams are coming out onto the pitch and the King Power Stadium is absolutely rocking! Kick off is just moments away.
Both sides will want to finish with a flurry, but they will be fairly relaxed going into this game already knowing the fate that awaits them next season. Fourteenth-placed Leicester are safe having pulled off arguably the greatest escape in Premier League history, after picking up 19 points from their last eight matches. Meanwhile, bottom club QPR will be playing in the Championship next season and do not know when they will next be back in the top flight.
QUEENS PARK RANGERS SUBS: Murphy, Hoilett, Doughty, Furlong, Comley, Kpekawa, Petrasso.
QUEENS PARK RANGERS (4-4-2): McCarthy; Onuoha, Dunne, Hill, Yun; Phillips, Henry, Barton, Fer; Austin, Grego-Cox.
LEICESTER CITY SUBS: Schwarzer, De Laet, Konchesky, Drinkwater, Hammond, Wood, Kramaric.
LEICESTER CITY (3-4-1-2): Schmeichel; Wasilewski, Huth, Morgan; Albrighton, Cambiasso, King, Schlupp; Mahrez; Ulloa, Vardy.
Two of QPR’s three changes have been forced as Alex McCarthy and Yun Suk-young come into the side after Robert Green and Steven Caulker limped off in the win over Newcastle United last weekend. Chris Ramsey was given the job on a full-time basis this week and it’s clear that he’s already looking towards the future as he gives a first start to Reece Grego-Cox alongside Charlie Austin, who was also included in the England squad for the first time this week. Fellow youngsters Michael Doughty, Brandon Comley, Mike Petrasso and Cole Kpekawa are among the substitutes.
Leicester sealed their Premier League survival with a well-earned point at the Stadium of Light last weekend and there are no real surprises as Nigel Pearson names a completely unchanged squad, which includes Jamie Vardy fresh from his England call-up.
Good afternoon and welcome to LIVE text commentary of the Barclays Premier League. We’re at the King Power Stadium where the curtain will come down on the 2014/15 season, as Leicester City and Queens Park Rangers go head to head. I’m Jonathan Davies and I’ll be guiding you through the action.
