Leicester vs Southampton Prediction
Leicester are back to winning ways in the Premier League and have secured maximum points from their past two games. Their most recent PL clash saw them breeze past Newcastle on the road with three unanswered goals to their name.
It is also worth mentioning that the Foxes have now stumbled just twice in their past ten games in all competitions. Having garnered forty-five points in the bag so far, the hosts are currently playing second fiddle to Liverpool on the ladder, and are one point above of third-placed Manchester City as well.
On the other hand, Southampton are on a solid run of form at the moment. The guests are unbeaten in their past four fixtures in the top flight and have dropped points just once in the process.
Furthermore, the Saints have been tasting nothing but success in their last two outings on the trot. Be that as it may, it needs saying the aforementioned alone does not guarantee the visitors a positive result in this one.
On home soil, Leicester have just been too hot to handle. Their only defeat so far came at the hands of the in-form Liverpool themselves. Moreover, the Foxes pulled off their biggest ever win in the reverse fixture of this clash with a colossal 9-0 victory.
With home advantage in their arsenal, Leicester are expected not to put a foot wrong.
In addition, Southampton have looked lively in the final third, even on the road. Fourteen of the twenty-five goals that they have scored so far have come from their outings.
Meanwhile, Leicester have found the back of the net two times or more in seven of their last nine games here. Given that their previous h2h meeting here also featured over 2.5 goals on the charts, it is certainly safe to expect a high scoring affair to unfold come Saturday.
