Leicester City vs Southampton Premier League Predictions and Match Preview by LeagueLane

Leicester City vs Southampton
England – Premier League
Date: Sunday, 22 May 2022
Kick-off at 16:00 UK/ 17:00 CET
Venue: King Power Stadium.

Southampton have been one of the absolute worst teams in the league this season and it is really a wonder how they are not included in the relegation fight.

They are on a long winless streak and most of these have been losses. They are conceding goals in huge numbers and it needs to be mentioned that they have been a mess on the road all through this current campaign.

However, the team seems to be on cruise mode since they have made sure of their safety. They just need this season to come to an end.

And this is exactly what the Foxes need. They are desperately trying to end their season on a good note.

The 2015-16 champions did not at all perform to their expectations and will not take part in any of the European competitions next year. This has been a season for them to forget and the least they could do for the fans is to bring it to an end in a respectable manner.

They are at home this Sunday and will try their absolute best to post the 3 points on the board. Judging their recent form and their head-to-head superiority over this opponent, expect a win for them this weekend.
