Team News

Brendan Rodgers will have to deal with the huge blow of losing Wilfred Ndidi for a month, after the midfielder picked up a knee injury in training, with Hamza Choudhury likely to come in for him.

Wes Morgan, Filip Benkovic, Matthew James and Daniel Amartey also remain sidelined for the Foxes.

Wes Morgan

The Saints don't have many injury concerns, with Yan Valery the only man currently out for them.

Predicted Lineups

Leicester Schmeichel; Pereira, Evans, Soyuncu, Chilwell; Choudhury, Tielemans; Perez, Maddison, Barnes; Vardy.
Southampton McCarthy; Cedric, Stephens, Bednarek, Bertrand; Armstrong, Ward-Prowse, Hojbjerg, Djenepo; Ings, Redmond

Head to Head Record

The two sides have played each other 90 times, with ​Southampton leading the head-to-head with 33 wins to Leicester's 29. However, the Saints have just one win in the last six games against their opponents. 

Ayoze Perez

The last time the two teams played each other was in the ​Premier League back in October 2019, with ​Leicester destroying Southampton 9-0 thanks to hat tricks from Ayoze Perez and ​Jamie Vardy. The scoreline equalled the biggest victory in Premier League history.

Recent Form


Both teams are in great form recently, so something might have to give this weekend. Ralph Hasenhuttl has turned Southampton's fortunes around in the last couple of months, with ​Danny Ings in sensational goalscoring form.

Leicester also continue to impress in their quest for a second place finish, having navigated the back end of the festive period well following defeats to Manchester City and Liverpool.

Leicester 1-1 Aston Villa (08/01) Southampton 2-0 Huddersfield (04/01)
Leicester 2-0 Wigan Athletic (04/01) Southampton 1-0 Tottenham (01/01)
Newcastle 0-3 Leicester (01/01) Southampton 1-1 Crystal Palace (28/12)
West Ham 1-2 Leicester (28/12) Chelsea 0-2 Southampton (26/12)
Leicester 0-4 Liverpool (26/12) Aston Villa 1-3 Southampton (21/12)



Despite Southampton's terrific form, the Foxes should have just about too much for them. It'll most definitely be a tight affair, but Leicester's quality should come through, especially with them playing in front of their home crowd too.

However, if the Saints can continue to create chances for the in-form Ings, then they have a chance of snatching something from the King Power.

Prediction: Leicester 2-1 Southampton
