Leicester vs Southampton: Southampton made headlines when these two sides closed the horns for the last time, but for all the wrong reasons. And now with Leicester at his best mortal level at home, another defeat is certainly looming for the Saints this weekend.
Leicester has won again in the Premier League and has had the most points in his last two games. Their last confrontation in PL saw them pass to Newcastle on the road with three goals without responding to their name.
It is also worth mentioning that the Fox have only stumbled twice in their last ten games in all competitions. Having accumulated 45 points in the bag so far, the hosts currently play the second Liverpool violin on the scale, and are also one point above Manchester City, third.
On the other hand, Southampton is in good shape right now. The guests are undefeated in their last four elite matches and have lost points only once in the process.
In addition, the saints only proved success on their last two jogging trips. Anyway, it must be said that the above does not guarantee visitors a positive result.
At home, Leicester was too hot to drive. His only defeat so far has come to Liverpool himself. In addition, the Foxes achieved their greatest victory in history in the inverse match of this clash with a colossal 9-0 victory.
With a home advantage in his arsenal, Leicester should not fail.
In addition, Southampton seemed lively in the last third, even on the road. Fourteen of the twenty-five goals they have scored so far come from their starts.
Meanwhile, Leicester has found the back of the net twice or more in seven of his last nine games here. Since his previous h2h meeting here had also scored more than 2.5 goals in the ranking, it is safe to expect a high score story on Saturday.
