Leicester vs Southampton Prediction: Premier League Match on 16.01.2021
It’s another busy weekend of action in the English Premier League with teams battling for position at both ends of the table. Five games go ahead on Saturday with Leicester City hosting Southampton at the King Power Stadium in the main attraction from 20:00 GMT.
Foxes in the running
Leicester started the week sitting third in the Premier League and looking likely to challenge for a top-four finish this season and return to Champions League football. There’s no recent, judging by their form so far in this campaign, why they can’t go on and challenge the likes of Liverpool and Man Utd for the league title. The Foxes have won 10, drawn two and lost five games so far and are just a point off the pace set by Liverpool.
The home team boast a proud unbeaten record in their last four at this level with that purple patch made up of two wins and a couple of draws. They bagged all three points in their most recent league match, beating Newcastle United 2-1 at St James Park before hammering Stoke City 4-0 in the FA Cup a week ago. Confidence is high in the camp.
Saints shock Reds
Southampton are holding their own in the top half of the Premier League table and with 17 games played they have high hopes of finishing in the European places. Saints have won eight, drawn five and lost four games to date, scoring 26 goals but conceding 19. The 29 points gained means they are level with Tottenham in fourth and unbeaten in their last three.
Saints started the year as they hope to go on by recoding an upset win over last season’s champions Liverpool at St Mary’s Stadium on 4 January. Many respected pundits had the Reds picked to win but an early goal from Ings scored inside the first two minutes of the game, was enough to see Southampton grab an unlikely victory. That was their only other game this year.
