Leicester have certainly taken their foot off of the gas in recent times, as they are without a win in two games. Sitting 8th in the Premier League, just a few games ago, the Foxes were in a comfortable position. However, Leicester now have Sam Allardyce’s Everton breathing down their necks who sit in 9th and just a point behind. Although, Southampton won’t be complaining about their dip in form.

The Saints have certainly had a season to forget and will certainly feel they were hard done by following their defeat to Chelsea last weekend. Southampton currently occupy the third relegation spot and are five points behind Swansea City who sit in 17th. If the Saints want a genuine chance of survival, this is a must win fixture for the south coast side – or else Ryan Bertrand and co could possibly be playing Championship football next season.
