Southampton v Leicester City Premier League Match Preview

Southampton welcome Premier League defending champions Leicester City to St Mary’s in Sunday’s afternoon clash, and could well pick up all three points given Claudio Ranieri’s men haven’t managed a win on the road all season.

The Saints aren’t in the best form themselves, however, enduring a losing run in recent weeks, which could make for an entertaining encounter between two teams suffering from inconsistency. Southampton have an awful record in head-to-heads with Leicester so an outcome at St Mary’s is hard to predict.

Claude Puel’s Southampton side are currently 13th in the Premier League table with 24 points from 21 games, having lost their last four in the division, conceding 10 goals.

The hosts have won only three times since October and look vulnerable ahead of their clash with Leicester City.

Southampton have lost their last two home games and have been beaten by bottom-half sides Burnley, Crystal Palace and Hull City in the last two months which will give hope to the visitors. Nevertheless, Southampton are 19/20 with William Hill to win against Leicester City.

As for the Foxes, the defending champions are two places and three points worse off than their opponents in the Premier League table, coming off the back of one win from their last six.

Claudio Ranieri’s men have picked up only two league victories since mid-October and have one of the worst away records in the division. Leicester haven’t won on the road in the league this season, picking up three draws and seven defeats from their 10 away games.

However, City have won or drawn in their last four Premier League head-to-heads with Southampton and Leicester City are 17/4 with Betway Sports to win against Southampton as a result.

Southampton are the favourites with home advantage and Leicester’s winless away record this season, but Puel’s men have lost four on the bounce and have lost two of their previous four league meetings with the Foxes.

With Southampton scoring just 19 goals in their 21 league games, while Leicester have failed to score in four of their last six, Betfair are offering odds of 13/5 for Southampton and Leicester City to draw.
