Leicester City vs Southampton EPL betting preview

Leicester City will welcome a recently revived Southampton side to the King Power Stadium this weekend in Matchweek 22 of the English Premier League.

The Saints will be seeking revenge for the 9-0 defeat they suffered at the hands of Leicester last October – the biggest defeat in the league this season, and the joint-heaviest defeat in the Premier League era.

Brendan Rodgers has done a grand job since taking charge of the Foxes last winter, leading them to second in the Premier league standings on 45 points, 13 points behind runaway leaders Liverpool.

Even more impressive is that their outstanding form in the league hasn’t cost them elsewhere. Leicester’s midweek 1-1 draw with Aston Villa in the first leg of the of the EFL Cup semi-final and their 2-0 triumph over Championship side Wigan Athletic in the third round of the FA Cup mean they are still in contention for three trophies this season.

Southampton were at rock bottom when they last met Leicester, but they head into the reverse fixture beaming with confidence following an impressive run of form over the Christmas period.

The Saints drew with Arsenal and beat both Chelsea and Tottenham Hotspur during the festive fixtures, massive results that have catapulted them from relegation danger to within a game of the top half. They are now 12th on the table with 25 points, two points away from Arsenal in 10th and 20 points behind Leicester City in second.

Saturday’s 2-0 triumph over Championship side Huddersfield Town also means that Southampton have booked their place in the fourth round of the FA Cup.

Leicester City team news

Veteran centre-back Wes Morgan is out with a groin injury and Croatian defender Filip Benkovic is missing due to a knee injury.

Ghanaian international Daniel Amartey is also set to continue with his prolonged spell on the sidelines, having missed over a year of football due to a ghastly ankle injury.

Southampton team news

Saints boss Ralph Hasenhüttl has no fresh injury concerns to contend with ahead of his side’s trip to the King Power.

Midfielder Sofiane Boufal is still struggling with a toe injury, but Frenchman Yann Valery could be up for selection after recovering from illness.

Jamie Vardy goalscorer odds and specials

• Vardy to score first goal – +220 at Bovada
• Vardy to score anytime/Leicester win – +110 at Bovada

Jamie Vardy leads the race for the EPL Golden Boot on 17 goals, four ahead of both Danny Ings of Southampton and Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang of Arsenal.

Having missed the win over West Ham United to attend a family matter, only to subsequently miss the victories over Newcastle United and Wigan Athletic due to a calf problem, the 32-year-old striker returned on Wednesday night to get some minutes under his belt.

Vardy netted a hat-trick at St Mary’s back in October, so the former England international will fancy his chances of hitting the scoreboard at home this weekend.

Leicester City vs Southampton EPL betting predictions

As adventurous as they are in the final third, Leicester City have one of the best defensive records in the Premier League — inferior only to that of Liverpool.

The Foxes have registered three wins and a draw in their last four outings in all competitions, but Southampton have achieved the same figures against tough opposition.

With both teams enjoying a decent run of form, and with the Saints performing better away than at home this season, this encounter could very well end in a stalemate.

Prediction: Draw – +320 at Bovada
