Leicester vs Southampton Predictions


Southampton have been conceding plenty of goals lately and could struggle dealing with Leicester's attack. I see Leicester scoring goals and reaching the final. 

  • Leicester have scored 3 goals in 3 of their 4 FA Cup ties this season (FA Cup)
  • Leicester have scored 2+ goals in 3 of their last 4 matches (Premier League)
  • Leicester's Kelechi Iheanacho has scored 9 goals in his last 6 matches (all competitions)
  • Southampton have conceded 2+ goals in their last 4 matches (Premier League)
  • Southampton have lost 5 of their last 7 matches (Premier League)
  • Southampton have seen over 2.5 goals in their last 4 matches (Premier League)

Head to Head


Southampton have a 34-30 advantage against Leicester with 28 draws in 92 matches.

Leicester Form


Leicester are currently third in the Premier League, two points above Chelsea in fifth. They have lost two consecutive league matches against Manchester City and West Ham, but before that they won three in a row in all competitions.

Brendan Rodgers’ side have knocked Stoke, Brentford and Brighton in the FA Cup this season, but most impressively they defeated Manchester United 3-1 in the quarterfinals.  

Leicester put five goals past Sheffield United last month, with striker Kelechi Iheanacho scoring nine goals in his last six appearances as the Foxes continue to score goals regularly. 

Leicester Injuries & Team News


The Foxes will be without Harvey Barnes, James Justin and Cengiz Ünder through injury whilst Wes Morgan is also a doubt.

A major boost for Leicester will be the return of Turkish centre-back Çaglar Söyüncü. 

James Maddison, Hamza Choudhury, and Ayoze Perez are available for selection after being dropped for breaking Covid-19 protocols. 

Southampton Form


Southampton’s league form has been dreadful of late, with the Saints winning just two of their last 14 Premier League matches. 

They currently sit 14th in the EPL, ten points above the relegation places but only four points from 17th place. 

They have conceded at least two goals in their last four matches, including an embarrassing 3-0 away defeat against West Brom last week. 

Ralph Hasenhüttl’s side have knocked out Shrewsbury, Arsenal, Wolves, and Bournemouth in the FA Cup this season, but they will have to improve vastly if they are to beat a side fighting for a Champions League place in Leicester. 

Southampton Injuries & Team News


The Saints will be without trio Michael Obafemi, Oriol Romeu and Will Smallbone through injury. 

On-loan Liverpool forward Takumi Minamino will also be ineligible for selection as he is cup-tied.

Verdict

Leicester are scoring goals and face a Southampton who cannot seem to stop conceding.
 
The brilliant form of Kelechi Iheanacho may be too much for the Saints defence to handle. I am tipping a Leicester win and over 2.5 goals.
