Southampton lock horns with Leicester City in this high-octane encounter of the Premier League. While Southampton are in the 16th position on the points table, Leicester City are in the third position of the table and look all set to finish in the top 4 of the league. This game is essentially a toss-up between a low-lying and under-confident Southampton and a high-flying and energetic Leicester City. The match is slated to begin at 12:30 AM (IST).
William Smallbone and Oriol Romeu are injured and will not be able to play in this game.
Wes Morgan might miss out on the game due to an injury. James Justin and Harvey Barnes will be missing out on this game for sure due to injuries.
The Saints have not been impressive in the Premier League this season and are languishing in the bottom section of the table. They are coming on the back off a defeat at the hands of Tottenham and lost the game 1-2. In spite of the opening goal by Danny Ings, the Saints failed to capitalize on the good start and eventually fell short. They have to be on their toes in this game in order to match up to the level of Leicester City.
Leicester City on the other hand have been quite dominant this season and have displayed good football in all the games they have played in. The Foxes have registered 19 wins so far in the tournament and are coming on the back off 2 straight wins. In the last game against Crystal Palace, Timothy Castagne and Kelechi Iheanacho scored 1 goal each, to seal off the game for Leicester. A good win in this game would further solidify their position in the points table.
