Leicester News and Form

Leicester got themselves a good away win at Everton to start of the new year on a positive note. That is actually three wins in their last four Premier League fixtures now (home and away combined). In their last Premier League home game they did suffer a bit of a shock as they lost 1-0 against Cardiff. Leicester are W4 D2 L4 on home soil in the EPL this season and they haven’t been a high-scoring side really, with 12 goals produced in their ten home fixtures. They have conceded an average of a goal against per fixture.

Only 40% of their home games this season have ended over 2.5 goals. Across the course of the season at home Leicester have collected three clean sheets. They haven’t managed to get one in any of their last three Premier League home games. The Foxes have been level at half time in half of their home games (W2 L3). Of the goals that they have conceded at home 70% of them have been in the first period of matches. Just twice this season at the King Power in the top flight have Leicester actually opened the scoring.

Southampton News and Form

The Saints picked up a great point in a 0-0 draw at Chelsea on January 2nd. That has to be seen as a big point earned for them. It leaves Southampton with away form of W2 D2 L7 now after that. Southampton have produced only then 10 away goals, conceding a total of 21 on their travels. Because of their defensive woes, 36% of their away games this season have gone over 3.5 goals. Southampton have suffered six losses in their last eight road fixtures in the Premier League (W1 D1).

They have earned a clean sheet in three road games this season and to be fair they have looked defensively better since new Ralph Hasenhuttl took over. Southampton have been level at half time in five of their away EPL fixtures. In just three away games, this season have Southampton opened the scoring in a fixture. Heading into the next weekend of action, they currently have the fourth-worst away record in the top flight. In total home and away Southampton have one clean sheet in eleven league outings
