Che Adams, Southampton, Premier League 2020-21

Leicester City are looking for their 11th Premier League win of the season when they welcome Southampton to the King Power Stadium on Saturday night.

Just 10 of Leicester’s points this season have come on home turf but bet365 make them 4/5 (1.80) favourites to add another three to that tally.

Southamptonended a four-game winless streak in the league last time out and they are 10/3 (4.33) to win at the King Power for the third season in a row.

Only one of the last seven Premier League meetings between these teams has ended level and another stalemate is available at 14/5 (3.80).

James Maddison, Cengiz Under, Jamie Vardy and Ricardo Pereira are all in contention to feature whilst Dennis Praet will miss out.

Ralph Hasenhuttl is hopeful that Che Adams and Oriol Romeu will return with Jannik Vestergaard and Nathan Redmond unlikely to be available, while Alex McCarthy is back following his spell out after a positive Covid-19 test.

As impressive as Leicester have been this season, their home form has been a disappointment,with only four teams picking up fewer points in their own stadium than the 10 that the Foxes have managed.

They have been reasonably strong in the final third, with 11 goals in eight Premier League fixtures at the King Power, but that tally came from just 27 shots on target– with their average of 3.38shots on target per game well below their overall season average of 4.06.

Leicester could, then, be set to endure more struggles against a Southampton side that has kept four clean sheets in their last six league games, including three in a row, with their most recent game being a 1-0 win over champions Liverpool.

All five of Southampton’s last five fixtures have seen fewer than three goals and bet365’s price of Evens (2.0) on that sequence to continue looks a strong selection for this Premier League clash on Saturday night.

Odds correct at the time of writing. Please gamble responsibly.
