Leicester vs Southampton PredictionLeicester vs Southampton Prediction and Preview for Saturday's EPL fixture. The 2015/2016 Premier League season is one that will live long in the hearts of Leicester City fans as they saw their side complete a rollercoaster ride to the league title. What a fairytale season it was!
Match status: 2019/20 Premier League - Matchweek 22
Kick-off:
Venue: King Power Stadium (Leicester)

The likes of Jamie Vardy and Riyad Mahrez led the Foxes to the title, shocking the whole footballing world in the process. They were not even considered top-six candidates prior to the campaign but Claudio Ranieri managed to steer his side to the Premier League title.

Its 2020 now and the Foxes are back at the business end of the table, sitting pretty in second, a whopping 14 points ahead of fifth-placed Manchester United. They have simply been brilliant this campaign.

With a game against troubled Southampton on the horizon, the home side will be looking to get the three points under the belt to maintain their position on the standings.

Leicester v Southampton Team News

With the Premier League title race already a foregone conclusion, with Jurgen Klopp’s Liverpool racing to the top of the standings, second-placed Leicester City will be aiming to maintain their place among the top-four mix.

For that, they will have to secure victory against the Saints this weekend, as Manchester City are hot on their tails. Only a single point separates these two sides on the log.

Brendan Rodgers deserves lots of plaudit for the massive work he has put in at King James Park, turning a mid-table team into title challengers once again. 

Title challengers? Top-four challengers may be more accurate here, given that Liverpool are a whopping 13 points clear at the top. It will take something really special for Leicester City to close down that gap. 

Leicester are on a two-game winning streak in the league at the moment, their last game seeing them breeze past a clueless Newcastle side at St. James’ Park. Firing three unanswered goals past the Magpies, Rodger’s side retained their position on the standings.

Southampton, on the other hand, are also on a solid run at the moment. They have not admitted defeat in their last four league games and have dropped points just once in the process. That is a remarkable record for a side that struggled so badly at the start of the campaign.

The confidence levels within the Saint’s dressing room is on a high with the club currently enjoying a two-game winning run of their own. Given this imperious record, Hasenhuttl’s men cannot be ruled out entirely for this fixture.

The King Power Stadium has been something of a fortress this season, with Rodger’s side having suffered a single loss all season – a 4-0 drubbing at the hands of in-form Liverpool. The fans can have no complaints about the loss, given the stature of the opponent in question.

This weekend, home factor is likely to play a major role in which team comes out on top. Also, the reverse fixture of this game at Southampton ended in a humiliating 0-9 loss for the Saints. That massive victory for Leicester is likely to hand them lots of confidence heading into this game.

Injured or Suspended Players:

Leicester: Wilfred Ndidi, Matty James, Wes Morgan.

Leicester vs Southampton Predictions

The home side have been nothing short of outstanding this season with England international Jamie Vardy pulling the strings for his side. They can’t seem to stop winning especially at the King Power Stadium.

However, Southampton are on an impressive run of their own and are definitely no slouch. Write them off at your own expense. An entertaining and enthralling game on the cards, expect both sides to find the back of net before the end of the game, with the game ending in a draw.
