Prediction: Leicester City vs Southampton

Prediction: Leicester City to win 2-1

Best Odds: 7/1

Bookmaker: Betfair

Leicester City and Southampton will lock horns with each other in the Premier League this weekend. The match at the King Power Stadium is scheduled to kick off at 8pm on Saturday and promises to be an exciting affair.

Leicester City

Leicester City will head into the match against Southampton on the back of a 4-0 victory over Stoke City away from home in the third round of the FA Cup. It followed a 2-1 victory over Newcastle United at St. James’ Park in the Premier League.

Brendan Rodgers’s side are doing extremely well in the Premier League at the moment and seem to be in the running for the title. Leicester currently find themselves fourth in the table with 32 points from 17 matches, four points behind leaders Manchester United.

Team news:

Leicester midfielder Dennis Praet will be out for around three months after picking up a hamstring injury.

Southampton

Southampton are also having a good season and have emerged as unlikely challengers for the Champions League places. The Saints are seventh in the Premier League table at the moment with 29 points from 17 matches, just three points behind fourth-placed Leicester.

Ralph Hasenhuttl’s side will head into the match against Leicester on the back of a 1-0 victory over Liverpool at St. Mary’s Stadium in the league. It followed two successive goalless draws with West Ham United and Fulham.

Team news:

Southampton striker Danny Ings tested positive last week and had been self-isolating, but he could return to training on Friday. However, the former Liverpool man is unlikely to play against Leicester.

Key Factors to Consider

  • Leicester City have scored 31 goals in 17 Premier League matches.
  • Southampton have scored 26 gaols in 17 Premier League matches.
  • Leicester City have conceded 21 goals in 17 Premier League games.
  • Southampton have conceded 19 goals in 17 Premier League games.
  • Leicester City lost 2-1 to Southampton in the league last season.

Conclusion

Both Leicester and Southampton play good and attacking football, and goals are guaranteed at the King Power Stadium this weekend. It should be a very entertaining affair, and one that Leicester could just edge.
