Leicester City vs Southampton Match Preview

Southampton could hardly have a better incentive for giving 100% effort this weekend – namely to try and avenge their 9-0 humiliation against Leicester earlier this season.

After that St Mary’s drubbing, Saints manager Ralph Hasenhuttl went odds-on to become the next Premier League manager to leave his job. But to his credit, he has outlasted five top-flight bosses since then and, from the end of November onwards, turned his team’s fortunes right around.

Now one of the form sides, Southampton have won six of their last nine matches and climbed to the relative safety of 12th position in the table, albeit the bottom half of the standings is so congested that they cannot afford to be in any way complacent.

As for Leicester, they can essentially start looking forward to Champions League football next term while having a crack at winning a domestic cup competition or two, given that they have a 14-point buffer securing their top-four place.

The campaign is now very much a free hit for the Foxes after they enjoyed such a superb first half of it, although Brendan Rodgers is not the sort of manager who will allow his players to slacken off or rest on their laurels.

Leicester’s biggest strength has been their home form, especially defensively, and while this is likely to be a much sterner test than when they ran riot on the south coast in October, they are still expected to grind out another success.
