THE TEAM NEWS

SOUTHAMPTON

  • Southampton managed to pick up a valuable point at Wolves last week and they will look to build on that as they welcome Leicester.
  • Ralph Hasenhuttl was relatively pleased with the performance of his team last week and he could be tempted to name an unchanged side here.
  • Ings' fine run of goalscoring form continued last weekend with his fifth goal in his last four matches and he will be key to their hopes.

Predicted line-up (3-4-2-1): Gunn; Bednarek, Yoshida, Vestergaard; Valery, Romeu, Hojbjerg, Bertrand; Ward-Prowse, Redmond; Ings

Unavailable: Djenepo (Injured), Cedric (Injured)

Doubtful:

LEICESTER

  • Leicester came back from a goal down against Burnley last week to return to winning ways as they sit in third spot in the Premier League.
  • Brendan Rodgers was delighted with the character of his players and he too could be tempted to name the same starting eleven for this one.
  • Maddison continues to struggle with an ankle problem but the playmaker is expected to play through the pain once again and start here.

Predicted line-up (4-1-4-1): Schmeichel; Ricardo Pereira, Evans, Soyuncu, Chilwell; Ndidi; Ayoze Perez, Tielemans, Maddison, Barnes; Vardy

Unavailable: Amartey (Injured), James (Injured)

Doubtful: Maddison (Injured)

THE PREDICTION

Southampton look set for another battle against relegation but will be buoyed by the point at Wolves last weekend. They face a difficult test here against Leicester though, and with the goals flowing at St. Mary's, expect the visitors to get the better of them in what could be a shootout.
