Southampton v Leicester Match Prediction - Preview
Southampton are at 15th in the table in the Premier League, just a few points clear of relegation. They fell to Tottenham Hotspur, 1-2, in their last encounter. Danny Ings opened the scorelines at 30′ with his header off of James Ward-Prowse’s corner. However, Spurs equalised at 60′ with Gareth Bale’s effort, and Son Heung-Min converted a penalty at 90′, completing the hosts’ comeback. Manager Ralph Hasenhüttl suffered his third straight loss (including their semifinal tie where they incidentally beat by Leicester), and has many questions to answer regarding his side’s form. For now, the focus is for them to get back to their winning ways by the next match.
- Southampton have never been beaten twice in an EPL season by Leicester since 1999-2000.
- Theo Walcott is looking to match his personal best record of 6 goals against one club (which he previously has done against Tottenham and West Ham).
Leicester City F.C.
Leicester City are comfortably seated at 3rd in the table, with only the two Manchester sides in front of them. They were also able to qualify for the FA Cup Final after knocking out Southampton, whom they are facing again this week. Their last EPL assignment saw them score a comeback win over Crystal Palace, 2-1. After Wilfried Zoha drew first blood with his goal at 12′, Leicester struggled against the Eagles’ defence. But star Kelechi Iheanacho helped the Foxes by providing the assist to Timothy Castagne for a goal at 50′ and scoring a goal of his own 80′ to make the come-from-behind win. Manager Brendan Rodgers praised his boys’ desire during the game, and hopes they will show the same as they take on the Saints anew.
- Leicester’s 9-0 victory over Southampton last season is the biggest away victory in EPL history.
- Ayoze Perez has scored more times against Southampton (7) than any other side.
