Competition: Premier League
Market: Leicester to win against Southampton
Odds: 15/8 @ Coral
Leicester City’s hopes of survival have been boosted by a miraculous upturn in form in recent weeks, and now they need a result against Southampton to all but confirm their place in the Premier League for next season. The Foxes have won five of their last six games in the division, and are currently one points above the bottom-three after 35 matches.
Manager Nigel Pearson finds his team one of five who can still go down in 18th place, assuming 19th- placed Queens Park Rangers & 20th-placed Burnley are going to get relegated. But Leicester still have a job to do before they can celebrate. They need a result against a difficult Southampton side, but do stand a chance of a result, with the Saints being vulnerable of late.
Southampton are hoping to finish in a Europa League place for next season, but have dropped points in four of their last five Premier League outings, which has led Coral to give odds of 15/8 for Leicester to win against the Saints this afternoon. Victory for City today could well keep them up.
