Leicester City faces Southampton
Leicester City faces Southampton at the King Power Stadium in a game from the 22th round of the Premier League. We are going to preview this match in our English Premier League predictions.
Words can’t desribe how good this season is for Leicester City. It seems that the manager Brendan Rodgers did amazing work with his team during the pre season, because right now the Foxes are second in the league with 45 points, only behind the leader Liverpool. Returning to the Champions League is a completely realistic goal at the moment.
Right now Leicester are just one point ahead of the champion Manchester City, who are third. Surely Leicester would want to stay ahead of the Cityzens, so the goal on Saturday will be just one – winning.
During the week Leicester City were unable to secure progression in the FA Cup, doing a 1-1 draw with Aston Villa at the King Power. Kelechi Iheanacho equaliesed for the home side, but it was not enough for the win.
For the next game Brendan Rodgers is going to be without Matthew James and Wilfred Ndidi, who are not avaliable because of injuries.
Southampton are a team on the rise right now. Since the holidays the Saints are just incredible with three wins and one draw in their last four games. The manager Ralph Hassenhuttl deserves compliments for the job he has done in the last 20 days. This is the way for Southampton to secure their survival.
It would be interesting to see how Southampton will do in this game because of psychological reasons. In their first game against Leicester this season they suffered a historical for the club 0-9 defeat at the St. Mary’s. It was really a nightmare of a night for them.
That’s our English Premier League predictions for the clash between Leicester City and Southampton on Saturday. Can the Foxes repeat their amazing performance from the St. Mary’s? Or Southampton will continue with their fine form?
