Southampton vs Leicester City Match Preview
Four seasons after their incredible Premier League title success, Leicester City can climb to second position in the table, for 16 hours or so at least, if they win at Southampton on Friday.
Southampton, meanwhile, are actually better on their travels because they have not won at St Mary’s since mid-April whereas they have enjoyed two away victories this season. But as the stats above reveal, there is usually plenty of entertainment in their home fixtures.
Leicester will undoubtedly have plenty of backers here at the 11/8 available at the time of writing, but they have not kept a clean sheet away to top-flight opposition in their last 13 attempts and that persuades us to think Southampton will hold them to a draw.
