Free tips Premier League: Southampton v Leicester predictions (12pm, Sunday)

Claude Puel’s Southampton welcome Premier League champions Leicester City in Sunday’s early kick-off, we take you through our predictions and betting tips for the clash between two sides struggling for form and consistent results this campaign.


Southampton v Leicester Past Meetings

This has not been a favourable fixture recently for the Saints – they have won none of the last four meetings and only triumphed once in seven attempts, in which they have failed to score in five. In thirteen meetings between 2000 and 2011, the Foxes recorded just the one victory.


Southampton v Leicester Stats

Leicester are yet to win away from home in ten attempts in this season’s Premier League, with only Burnley (1) earning fewer points on the road (than their 3).

Saints have lost successive Premier League home games for the first time since 2014 and their league games this season have produced a league-low 17 first-half goals (eight for, nine against).


Southampton v Leicester Team News

Southampton are in somewhat of an injury crisis – long-term absentees Charlie Austin, Sofiane Boufal, Matt Targett and Jeremy Pied remain out for this one, while midfielder Steve Davis and defender Virgil Van Dijk are both doubts.

Onyinye Ndidi will be hoping to maintain his place in the Foxes line-up after making his debut against Chelsea last week, while Riyad Mahrez is unavailable due to African Cup of Nations duty with Algeria. Ahmed Musa is once again likely to partner Jamie Vardy up front but Leicester should revert to a back four with Danny Simpson coming in for Ben Chilwell.

Southampton to ‘Win to Nil’ 21/10 – Paddy Power


Reason for Southampton v Leicester tips:

There are no two ways of saying this – Leicester have been abject away from home in the league this campaign. They are without a win in any of their ten fixtures on the road and are one of only two teams not to have tasted victory away from home this campaign.

The Saints home form has been somewhat inconsistent with only four wins from ten attempts, but it is worth baring in mind that two of those defeats came over a Christmas schedule in which they had less time between their three festive fixtures than any other side in the divisions, with a number of absentees.

Before their latest two home defeats, they had lost only one home game in eight (to Chelsea) and conceded only five goals in those fixtures.

Claude Puel has built a side who are resilient, well-drilled and hard to break down, while a home win to nil is reinforced by recent 1-0 home cup victories over Liverpool and Norwich City.
