1. Recent Performances

Foxes Looking To Bite Saints For Second Time This Season

Leicester City have lost their last two Premier League games 2-1, away at Burnley, and at home to Newcastle United. Despite that recent dip in form, they have enjoyed a decent enough season, and will almost certainly finish in the top half of the table this campaign. While that is not the heights they hit in 2016, when they won the league, it is still a sold achievement for a club of the Foxes’ size.
If they beat Southampton on Thursday evening, then Leicester will have completed a league double over the Saints for the first time since the 1999/2000 season. Another incentive for Claude Puel’s team is to keep their record of not losing consecutive home games this season intact. The Foxes have not lost successive Premier League games at home since September, when Chelsea and Liverpool beat them in consecutive games at the King Power Stadium. Southampton have also never won at the King Power Stadium, with their last victory at Leicester coming at Filbert Street in 2001.
The momentum seems to be with Leicester, then, despite their two recent defeats. Anyone looking for Leicester City vs Southampton free betting tips might be wise to consider what kind of value the Foxes offer.

Saints Staring At The Drop

Southampton would have been feeling really good about themselves for a period on Saturday afternoon, when they faced Chelsea at St Mary’s Stadium. On the hour mark in that game, Jan Bednarek put the Saints 2-0 up against the west London giants, and it looked as though Mark Hughes’s side had secured an important three points in their battle for Premier League survival.
But it was not to be the case. Olivier Giroud came on for Chelsea, and his two goals helped inspire a fightback that saw the Blues win the game 3-2. Southampton fans must have felt that the universe was against them. But things like that tend to happen to you when you are near the bottom of the table.
It is therefore vital that the Saints bounce back and collect at least one point from a potentially tough away game at Leicester. Southampton’s real problem has been the number of draws they have registered this season, with 13 games ending in ties. They have lost 15 games and won just five, which does not bode well for Thursday night. That stat is something to think about if you’re looking for Leicester City vs Southampton betting tips for today.

3. Previous Games

The previous game between these two sides took place at St Mary’s back on December 13. It ended in an emphatic victory for the Foxes, who triumphed 4-1. City were 3-0 up at half-time, thanks to goals from Riyad Mahrez, Shinji Okazaki and Andy King. Maya Yoshida pulled one back for the Saints, but Okazaki added a second which killed off the game. Leicester were dominant that day, and memories of that defeat will be painful for both Southampton players and fans.

The previous game to that, was last season’s meeting at St Mary’s, which ended in a 3-0 victory for Southampton. Goals from James Ward-Prowse, Jay Rodriguez and Dusan Tadic proved enough for the Saints to win in convincing fashion. A lot has changed at Southampton since that game in January 2017, though. Mark Hughes would be delighted if his team could manage a repeat performance on Thursday evening.

4. Game Prediction

When it comes to making a Leicester City vs Southampton prediction, it is hard to look beyond a Foxes win, even given that they have lost their last two matches. Southampton look stuck in the kind of death spiral towards relegation that only massive good luck can get you out of, and they do not look like a lucky team right now. Their defeat to Chelsea at the weekend was the kind of game that they should have won, given they were 2-0 up against a team who have endured their own mental frailties this season. That they couldn’t kill off the game speaks volumes about their state of mind this season. The prediction is therefore that City will win the game 2-0.
