Thoughts for the match

Leicester will be mindful of their last encounter in the lead up to this match.

The East Midlands side dominated the ball, but struggled to fashion chances against a fast-paced counter attacking Southampton side.

The Saints found the perfect balance of when to press and when to drop off in order to nullify the threat of Jamie Vardy, and will likely use that as a blue print tonight.

It is a story of returning strikers as Jamie Vardy and Che Adams take their places up top for their respective sides and it will be up to those around them to supply the ball into them to fashion chances.

While the first goal is always important in a match, the attacking talent that both sides posses suggest that there will be more than one goal in the contest, meaning that which ever team who gets the first goal will have to search for even more if they are to take control of the game.

Ralph Hassenhutl on Leicester

The Saints manager gave his thoughts on the match ahead, stating that he hopes his side will prove to be a tough opponent for the Foxes.

"We have an opponent that is definitely shown some big strength in their game. We know about their offensive qualities, but also defensively they are always organised.

"You don’t have a lot of time for creating chances or using chances. It’s a Premier League game on the highest level I expect and hopefully, we can be a competitive opponent."

20:482 months ago

Brendan Rodgers on his opponents

The Leicester boss was full of praise for the opposition side, highlighting key threats that his side will have to face.

“They’re very well organised. They want to play on the front foot and defend forward. It doesn’t surprise me. I’ve said before about the quality of the players they have. Alex McCarthy I know well, Ryan Bertrand is a Champions League winner, Walker-Peters has settled in very quickly, Stephens has come through and has acquitted himself well, he’s good on the ball, Ward-Prowse has great quality, Armstrong is a winner, Ings I know very well, his movement his terrific and he can finish. It’s not rocket science. They’re organised and with the quality, that makes them a very good team."

Southampton team news

Southampton will be without star striker Danny Ings after the forward returned a positive COVID-19 test.

Jannik Vestergaard, Oriol Romeu, Nathan Redmond, Moussa Djenepo and Mohammed Salisu could all miss out, but Che Adams and Alex McCarthy could return.

Leicester team news

Leicester have been dealt a blow with the news that Dennis Praet could be out for up to three months after a hamstring injury sustained in their comfortable win over Stoke City in the FA Cup.

With that blow, however, comes a lot of promising news for the Foxes, with Jamie Vardy, James Maddison, Cengiz Under and most notably Ricardo Pereira all in contention for the match after respective injuries.

Last meeting between the sides

While Leicester's 9-0 victory over Southampton will be on the lips of many coming into the game, it was in fact Southampton who won the last meeting.

Dennis Praet opened the scoring for the homeside but the lead only lasted five minutes as Stuart Armstrong struck to put the Saints back on level terms.

Danny Ings had the final say in the match, scoring in the 81st minute to give his side the victory and revenge over the humiliating scoreline that proceeded the game.

Two teams looking to displace the 'natural order'

Both Leicester and Southampton have been flying this season, finding themselves on 32 and 29 points respectively.

While it is a largely similar position for the Foxes as their one last season, a complete change in fortune has fallen upon their South Coast counterparts, who at this stage last season were looking over their shoulders as opposed to what could be ahead of them.

Many say that the 9-0 mauling that Leicester dealt at St Mary's Stadium was the turning point of Southampton's season, who have seemingly carried on that form into this one.

With that in mind, as well as Leicester's latest push to unsettle the league's 'bix six', both sides will fancy their chances in staking their claim for a place in European competitions next season.
