Betting tips and match preview | Premier League

Leicester welcome Southampton to the King Power Stadium on Sunday, with both sides looking to build on their excellent midweek wins.

The Foxes into this match on the back of a 4-1 defeat against Manchester United away last weekend.

Goals from Chris Smalling (22), Juan Mata (37), Marcus Rashford (40) and Paul Pogba (42), completed an unprecedented first half for United.

Leicester did manage to grab a consolation goal through Demarai Gray (59), who’s stunning effort from the left managed to thunder past David de Gea.

In truth it was a poor defensive display from Leicester, they failed to mark set pieces properly and were ruthlessly exposed.

Back In Form

That defeat will have left Claudio Ranieri disappointed, one of the cornerstones of their title campaign last season was strong defending.

To concede three goals to set pieces, especially the Marcus Rashford goal will have given Ranieri an enormous headache.

Luckily they were able to put this right in the Champions League, with the Foxes recording an excellent win against Porto to make it two wins from two.

Home Side Favourites

Dragonslayer Islam Slimani scored the only goal of the game, Leicester will be looking to make it another fairytale season.

Leicester come into this match as favourites and will be looking to make it two wins in four days.

Claudio Ranieri’s side are 13th in the Premier League, with a win enough to take them up to 9th if results go their way.


Saints Hitting Top Form

Southampton travel to the King Power Stadium after an emphatic win against West Ham, with a 3-0 rout at the London Stadium.

Goals from Charlie Austin (40), Dusan Tadic (62) and James Ward-Prowse (90 +2) completed an emphatic win for the Saints.

Claude Puel will be delighted with his side though, to score three away from home in such a dominant performance will have delighted the Frenchman.

Mixed Start To Season

Southampton have enjoyed a mixed start to the season, they had failed to win any of their opening four matches.

It wasn’t until their opening 3-0 win in the Europa League that they kickstarted their season, Sparta Praha the victims on this occasion.

Their European adventures continued on Thursday, with a 0-0 draw against Hapoel Be’er Sheva away, who are unbeaten in their new stadium.

Saints Underdogs

Southampton come into this match as underdogs, they will be looking to make it three successive wins.

This will be a tough fixture for Claude Puel’s side, with Leicester looking to build on their excellent start in the Champions League.
