Southampton vs Leicester City Match Preview and Team News
Southampton is coming from three straight losses and will be desperate to return to winning ways, being just nine points above the relegation zone. They have two wins in their last 15 league matches and will have a fresh concern with top scorer Danny Ings having suffered yet another injury. The Saints have failed to replicate the comeback and 3-2 win over Burnley and lost away to West Bromwich Albion and Tottenham Hotspur in the last two league matches. They have conceded at least two goals in the previous five league matches, though they’ve failed to score in only one, with each of the five producing over 2.5 goals. James Ward-Prowse has excellent ball control, he can play in several positions, and every team needs such a player. Theo Walcott is a guy who makes a lot of trouble for the opponent on the left flank. He has speed and an excellent one-on-one game.
Leicester have recovered from the slump that saw them lose to Manchester City and West Ham United back to back. They are on a three-match winning run in all competitions and have registered two straight league wins after the FA Cup win over Southampton. This will be another chance for them to move closer to securing third place, and they have the confidence to go for it. Kelechi Iheanacho was on the mark again as they came from down to seal a 2-1 win over Crystal Palace in the last game. He has now scored 12 goals in nine matches and has hit double figures in the league, being just three goals behind leading scorer Jamie Vardy. The Foxes have failed to score in just one of their last five league matches, but they have three wins in the five, with four producing over 2.5 goals. Youri Tielemans plays well in the middle of the park, and he does not allow the opponent much action. Kelechi Iheanacho enjoys the pitch, and when he receives the ball and goes towards the goal, the opponent has problems. He is strong, and it is challenging to keep this guy.
