The bottom half of the Premier League will feature Southampton and Leicester City, battling it out in the St. Mary's Stadium. The match will be played in the Barclays Premier League, on Sunday afternoon.
The Saints have lost their last four league matches, a feat that has landed them to the 13th place in the table. Similar has been the case for Leicester too, who are at the 15th place, courtesy of very less wins and majority of draws. Plus, as visitors, they have failed to win their last 12 matches, which is another spell to have added to their poor form.
The two sides at the moment don't appear to have a lot that separates them, given their form. On one side, the hosts have failed to win a match in the recent weeks, while on the other, the Foxes have failed to win as the visiting side. Both of them are coming in this game on back of defeats to Burnley and Chelsea respectively.
The first leg of this fixture ended in a goalless draw, but that was in the King Power Stadium. There is no saying how things will pan out in the St. Mary's. This is going to be a close one to call.
Southampton play hosts to an in form Leicester City outfit in what promises to be a thriller of a match up. This game is scheduled to be played at St Marys Stadium on Saturday, October 17, at 15:00 hours BST.
Southampton have not started this season as well as expected after their wonder season last year. The loss of some crucial players has affected the team. However, their front man Graziano Pelle has stated finding the back of net on a decently regular basis which works just fine for them. Dusan Tadic has taken a while but found his feet. He holds the key in midfield. A win against Chelsea will spur them on for a home win in this match.
Leicester City have been living a dream. Jamie Vardy, Maharez and Marc Albrighton have been leading the pack and with support of the rest of the team they are fighting at the top end of the table. This game proves to be a good benchmark to see how far they have come. We can expect them to come out guns blazing and push for the away win.
Based purely on current form, this fixture proves to be a toughie to predict. We can expect them this game to be a hard fought midfield battle. It could most likely end as a stalemate.
Southampton FC will play Leicester City FC in a Premier League match on the 8th of November 2014 from 15:00 hrs GMT at the St Mary’s Stadium.
Southampton FC are the surprise team of the season so far after making a smashing start to the season. This was after selling most of their top performers of the last season and replacing them with cheaper and better foreign alternatives.
Having won seven of the ten matches played so far they are the closest to the league leaders Chelsea FC by just four points. With 21 goals so far they have the second best attack in the league so far also in Fraser Forster they have a goalkeeper with six clean sheets, the best in the season so far.
In the last five home matches they have won the last four and have drawn the other.
Leicester City FC are languishing at the bottom of the table in the 17th position. With just two wins out of ten they are in a very real danger of being relegated this season.
The last five away matches for Leicester City FC have resulted in four losses and a solitary win. This match will be won by the home team by a comfortable margin.
