The Premier League returns this weekend as we enter the month of March, with the home stretch of the campaign not being all too far away. The picture is starting to get a little bit clearer at both ends of the table but in reality, there’s still a few weeks left until we know what kind of run-in we’re in for. Today, we’ll take a look at a pretty enticing clash in the relegation battle between Southampton and Leicester City.


From managerial changes to frustration in the squad and beyond, this feels like the closest this Southampton side has been to returning down to the Championship in quite some time. They’ve been producing high quality players for years now but when you’re being dumped out of the FA Cup by a League Two side, it’s safe to say there are some core problems behind the scenes.

Team News

Larios and Livramento are still out of action whereas Salisu and Adams are considered to be fitness concerns.


Leicester City’s days as one of the best teams in the Premier League are long gone – or, at the very least, they’re on sabbatical. Questions have been consistently raised regarding the ability of Brendan Rodgers to vault this team further up the league, after previously doing so well as manager. They’ve got time to turn things around, but there’s no denying that they’re in the mix down the bottom.

Team News

Tielemans, Justin, Evans and Bertrand are all out through injury, with Maddison set to be assessed before kick-off.

Factors to Consider

  • In their last meeting back in August, Southampton beat Leicester 2-1.
  • Southampton have won one and lost five of their last six games.
  • Leicester have won three and lost three of their last six games.
  • Southampton have scored four goals and conceded 10 in their last six games.
  • Leicester have scored 10 goals and conceded nine in their last six games.


The run of form that Leicester have been on seriously implies that they’re slipping back into a poor state, and away from home at a team as desperate as Southampton, we think it’s only going to get worse. The Saints have what it takes to cause problems in the final third and although the Foxes are bound to get their licks in up top, we still think the hosts will be able to come away with a huge three points.
