Southampton vs Leicester prediction

The Premier League action kicks off on Friday evening this weekend as Southampton host high-flying Leicester City.

Brendan Rodgers’ side have the opportunity to move above Manchester City into second place with three points before Saturday’s games.

The Foxes do come into the game as favourites and rightfully so with their performances of late, whilst Southampton head into the weekend only outside the relegation zone on goal difference.

Leicester offer a good threat in attack with Jamie Vardy and James Maddison both in fine form under the Northern Irish manager. They will probably need a couple of goals in this match as they have only kept clean sheets in two of their first nine games this season.

Though the hosts are very reliant on Danny Ings up front, so don’t be surprised if Rodgers gets the Saints striker marked out of the game in hopes of getting their third shut out of the season.

Heading into the season I tipped Leicester to break into the top six but right now the question is whether they can finish in the top four now. Three points on Friday will help towards their challenege.

Best bet: Leicester City to win is 2.36 with Betfair
