Leicester boss Claude Puel hosts former employers Southampton on Thursday evening with the Saints desperate for points in the battle against the drop.

Both sides were beaten at the weekend and Leicester will have to get back to winning ways if they are to try to catch Burnley and earn a Europa League spot.

The Saints, meanwhile, are third bottom and blew a two-goal lead against Chelsea on Saturday, ultimately losing 3-2.
