Predicted Leicester and Southampton line-ups

Leicester V Cardiff

Here is how we predict Leicester City and Southampton will line up for this weekend’s match:

To be played on Saturday 9th May 2015 at 14:00. Venue: King Power Stadium, Leicester

Odds: Leicester 13/8, Draw 12/5, Southampton 6/4

Leicester City welcome Southampton to the King Power Stadium on Saturday with the Foxes in the middle of an outstanding run.

Just a few short weeks ago, Nigel Pearson’s side looked destined for relegation, but five wins in their last six league games have seen them climb out of the bottom three and have their fate very much in their own hands with three games remaining.

Southampton are currently seventh in the table and they will not have given up hope of ending a fine season with qualification for next season’s Europa League. But they will have to be at their best to beat Nigel Pearson’s in-form side.

In early team news, Leicester are without the injured David Nugent while Andy King has a 75 per cent chance of recovering from a hamstring injury.

Southampton are without goalkeeper Fraser Forster, midfielder’s Morgan Schneiderlin and Dusan Tadic and striker Jay Rodriguez. James Ward-Prowse is also out due to suspension.
