Leicester looking for their third win of the season against Southampton

Southampton lost last time out away at Tottenham 2-1, making it three defeats on the run in all competitions. Goalscoring has been a bit of an issue for the Saints at times this season. Danny Ings has scored 10-goals in the league so far but is some way off his total of 22-goals achieved last season. Che Adams and James Ward-Prowse have both chipped in with 7 league goals apiece, but none of the trio have managed to score against Leicester this season as the Foxes have kept two clean sheets against the Saints in 2021.

The Foxes are in polar opposite form to their hosts, winning each of their last three games in league and cup, claiming a 2-1 win over Crystal Palace on Monday night. Leicester are flying on all cylinders this season having made it through to the FA Cup final and remaining well in the hunt for a top-four finish. Friday's guests carry more of a goal threat than their hosts this season and have been performing better on the road than in their own backyard, so you can see just why we have backed an away win for the Foxes this Friday.
