Leicester Form


Leicester have performed well in all competitions of late, albeit with the bulk of their good results coming away from home.

The Foxes won 2-0 away to Tottenham before a 2-2 draw at home to Manchester United. They have since played away from home three times in a row, drawing 1-1 with Crystal Palace and beating Newcastle 2-1.

Last time out, they thumped Stoke City 4-0 in the FA Cup. James Justin, Marc Albrighton, Ayoze Perez and Harvey Barnes all scored for Brendan Rodgers’ side, who have just one win in four at home in the league.

Leicester Team News & Injuries


Leicester will be hoping James Maddison and Jamie Vardy can shake off knocks to be available on Saturday. Ricardo Pereira, Dennis Praet and Cengiz Under are expected to miss out.

Southampton Form


Southampton, fresh off a 12-day gap between fixtures, have become accustomed to draws in the Premier League.

The first of those came away to Arsenal, before losing 1-0 at home to Manchester City. That defeat was then followed up with successive 0-0 draws with Fulham and West Ham. 

Ralph Hasenhuttl’s men then ended a four-match wait for a win as they beat Liverpool 1-0.

Danny Ings scored the only goal of the game against his former club inside two minutes as they also ended a three-match wait for a goal. 

Away from home, they have scored in five of their last six matches.
