THE TEAM NEWS

LEICESTER

  • Leicester face a short turnaround after they were involved in League Cup action on Wednesday night where they were held by Aston Villa.
  • The Foxes will be attempting to consolidate second place in the Premier League and are in a healthy position in terms of personnel.
  • Jamie Vardy returned to the side against Villa and he is likely to lead the line alongside Kelechi Iheanacho who could earn a starting spot.

Predicted line-up (3-5-2): Schmeichel; Soyuncu, Evans, Fuchs; Ricardo Pereira, Praet, Maddison, Tielemans, Chilwell; Vardy, Ihenacho

Unavailable: James (Injured), Ndidi (Injured), Morgan (Injured), Amartey (Injured)

SOUTHAMPTON

  • Southampton's recent upturn in form continued in the FA Cup as they progressed to the fourth round with a win over Huddersfield.
  • Ralph Hasenhuttl made 10 changes to the side that defeated Tottenham with James Ward-Prowse the only man to keep his place.
  • The Saints are expected to name the same starting XI that saw off Spurs but Shane Long will not be too far off a starting place either.

Predicted line-up (4-4-2): McCarthy; Cedric, Bednarek, Stephens, Bertrand; Armstrong, Ward-Prowse, Hojbjerg, Djenepo; Ings, Redmond

Unavailable: Valery (Illness)

Doubtful:

THE PREDICTION

Leicester come up against an in-form Southampton knowing that revenge will be firmly at the forefront of everyone associated with their opponents. Southampton were humiliated as they conceded nine goals when the teams last met but they are a different outfit since then and should avoid defeat.
