Leicester City Prediction – Can Leicester hold onto 2nd spot?

Absolutely no-one could have predicted the scoreline between Southampton and Leicester City ahead of their last clash back in October which saw Leicester City demolish the south coast side 9-0 at St Marys Stadium, but whilst we’re highly unlikely to see a repeat of that score on Saturday, Leicester will no doubt fancy their chances of grabbing all three points here.

The hosts had earlier embarked upon an impressive 8-match winning streak before a 1-1 draw with Norwich City was followed by back-to-back losses to Manchester City and Liverpool, but The Foxes quickly bounced back under manager, Brendan Rodgers, by recording wins against West Ham and Newcastle United to retain 2nd place.

Just 1 point separates Leicester City from 3rd placed Manchester City ahead of this weekend’s action but Leicester hold home advantage this Saturday where they’ve posted a solid record of 7-2-1 19/9 to date this season.

Leicester’s one defeat at home this season was to Premier League title winners-elect, Liverpool, but aside from that, The Foxes have been virtually dominant over each opposition that’s come to the east midlands this term.

Southampton Prediction – Can Southampton keep run going?

It’s been an impressive turnaround in form in recent times for the south coast club as they bring a 4-match unbeaten run into this clash at the King Power Stadium against high-flying Leicester City, having won 3 of their last 4 matches overall.

Recent wins against Aston Villa, Chelsea and Tottenham along with a point against Crystal Palace have helped lift Southampton out of the doldrums and the bottom three and up into a more respectable looking mid-table position of 12th place on the Premier League ladder.

Manager, Ralph Hasenhuttl once again seems to have rescued The Saints but he’ll be keen to ensure complacency doesn’t set in in his squad as they seek to avoid being dragged back down into the lower reaches of the top flight.

5 points separates Southampton from south coast rivals, Bournemouth, who occupy third from bottom place and Saints will be keen to build upon their encouraging results on the road in recent weeks.
