With four straight losses in their last four Premier League fixtures, Southampton will be looking to put an end to their terrible form when they host last years champions Leicester City at St. Mary’s Stadium in the 22nd round of the English Premier League.
The hosts have been struggling in recent weeks in the English top flight. Southampton have lost all of their last four games in the league and will be looking to gain any point(s) against Leicester here to stop their downward trend. The team have collected 3 points from a possible 15 in their last five league games. Their last match was against Burnley away from home where they lost 1-0.
Southampton are sitting in 13th place in the league table with 24 points from 6 wins, 6 draws and 9 losses. They have scored 19 goals and conceded 26 since the start of the start of the season.
Southampton boss Claude Puel has a number of injury concerns ahead of the welcome of Leicester, with the Frenchman sweating over the fitness of Virgil van Dijk and Ryan Bertrand. Jeremy Pied, Matt Targett, Charlie Austin, Sofiane Boufal Steven Davis and Alex McCarthy are all sidelined here.
The visitors are also struggling in the league at the moment. Leicester have been in the bottom half of the table for the majority of the season. They have won only one game in their last five league fixtures. The team have collected 5 points from a possible 15 in their last five league games. Their last game was against Chelsea at home where they lost 3-0 to the league toppers.
Leicester are currently sitting in the 15th place in the league table with 21 points from 5 wins, 6 draws and 10 losses. They have scored 24 goals and conceded 26 since the start of the season.
Leonardo Ulloa is a doubt for the Foxes, while Daniel Amartey, Riyad Mahrez and Islam Slimani are all at the Africa Cup of Nations. Claudio Ranieri could revert to a four-man defence after his side fell to a 3-0 loss at Chelsea’s expense on Saturday.
