Southampton vs Leicester Predictions


Southampton are on a terrible run of form, especially in the Premier League. Leicester are full of confidence and in-form striker Kelechi Iheanacho is leading their push for the top four. 

I am backing Iheanacho to score again and Leicester to win. 

  • Southampton have lost their last 3 matches (all competitions)
  • Southampton have lost 12 of their last 15 matches (Premier League)
  • Southampton have lost 3 of their last 4 matches against Leicester (all competitions)
  • Leicester have won their last 3 matches (all competitions)
  • Leicester have won 6 of their last 8 matches (all competitions)
  • Leicester’s Kelechi Iheanacho has scored 12 goals in his last 9 matches (all competitions)

Head-to-Head


Southampton have a 34-31 advantage against Leicester with 28 matches drawn. 

Leicester beat the Saints 1-0 in their FA Cup semi-final two weeks ago. Iheanacho scored the winner in the second half. 

Southampton Form 


Southampton lost 2-1 away at Tottenham last Wednesday, their third consecutive defeat in all competitions.

Danny Ings gave Southampton the lead in the first half. Gareth Bale equalised in the second period and Son Heung-Min scored the winner from the penalty spot in the 90th minute.

The result followed a 1-0 loss to Leicester in the FA Cup semi-final and a disappointing 3-0 defeat away at West Brom. 

12 losses in 15 Premier League matches has seen the Saints plummet down the table in the second half of the season. They are nine points off the relegation places in 15th. 

Southampton Injuries & Team News


Midfielder Nathan Tella will return to the squad.

Striker Danny Ings is doubtful with a thigh injury.

Defender Ryan Bertrand, forward Michael Obafemi and midfielders Oriol Romeu and William Smallbone are ruled out. 

Leicester Form


Leicester beat Crystal Palace 2-1 on Monday to extended their winning streak to three matches in all competitions. 

Timothy Castagne and Kelechi Iheanacho scored in the second half to cancel out Palace’s opener. Leicester dominated with 66% possession and 13 shots.

The win followed a comprehensive 3-0 victory against West Brom in the Premier League and a 1-0 FA Cup semi-final win over Southampton. Iheanacho scored in both matches and has five goals in his last four in all competitions. 

Brendan Rodgers’ side have won four of their last six Premier League matches, keeping them in 3rd place with a seven-point cushion in the Champions League places. 

Leicester Injuries & Team News


Forward Harvey Barnes and defender James Justin are ruled out through injury.
