Premier League

Leicester vs Southampton prediction

Leicester City are battling for a top four finish this season and welcome a Southampton side to the King Power Stadium on Saturday, with the Saints themselves in the top half.

It was this fixture last season that ended 9-0 in favour of the Foxes and although the visitors this weekend still have the same manager in charge they have very much changed their fortunes.

Although I don’t see this match coming anywhere close to a repeat of last season’s scoreline I am with the bookmakers in making Leicester the favourites.

James Maddison has been in very good form of late, with both he and Harvey Barnes both looking to impress Gareth Southgate to get a call-up to the England squad for the European Championship over the summer.

Southampton did beat Liverpool in their last Premier League match prior to the FA Cup third round last weekend but I don’t think they will be able to match up to a Leicester side that are performing very well so far this season.

Best bet: Leicester City to win at 1.86 with Betfair
