Both sides will be keen to take the points, as Leicester welcome Southampton to the King Power Stadium in the return fixture.

Leicester, currently sitting ninth, host fifteenth placed Soton on Sunday.

Leicester City have 49 points to their name, going into this tie

Leicester suffered an away loss to Watford in their last outing, they will doubtless be keen get a positive outcome in this fixture.

Also, Brendan Rodgers’ Leicester have enjoyed excellent form all season. Now they have 13 matches won, 14 games lost and 10 duels drawn; that’s why they currently sit in ninth place, with a total of 49 points having won 13 fixtures, drawn 10 meetings, and lost 14 matches.

When Leicester host Soton, they will do so on the back of nine victories, four darts, and five losses on their own ground.

Leicester City will have secured 52 points so far this season, should they secure a win.

Good Attacking Performance

Leicester will be pleased to have a good goal scoring record so far this season (58). This season, their stand-out attacking players have been Jamie Vardy (5), James Maddison (5), and Harvey Barnes (4). Teams that leak goals on a consistent basis, don’t tend to win anything, such is the situation with Leicester so far, having conceded 58 goals in their last fixtures so far.

Leicester’s squad will likely be depleted of three of their key players when they start on Sunday, due to injury or illness.

With the Premier League season well into its stride, Southampton have managed to gain 40 points

This match sees Soton looking for a return to form, following a defeat in their last match against Liverpool.

Also, Soton need to find a way to generate wins on a consistent basis, as they’ve recorded eight losses in their last 11 games. They currently stand fifteenth in the League, with 40 points for a total of 9 wins, 15 losses and 13 draws having won nine matches, drawn 13 meetings, and lost 15 fixtures.

It must be a worrying prospect for Soton to go back on the road, with a bud run of away performances under their belt this season. So far they have only secured three wins, six draws, and nine defeats to the home team.

A win in this fixture, would take Southampton’s points from 40 to 43, so far this season.

Ralph Hasenhuttl will be forced to make changes to the plans for his squad, as injury or illness has depleted him of two of his Soton players.
