Ronald Koeman suggests Southampton will make changes against Leicester

Ronald Koeman

Southampton manager Ronald Koeman was left furious after suffering defeat to Sunderland last time out.

Southampton manager Ronald Koeman has told the club's official website that he will make changes to his team this weekend.

Koeman was left fuming after his Saints side lost 2-1 to Sunderland last Saturday and has suggested that he will name a much-changed side against Leicester City tomorrow.

Koeman says that he sat down with his team after the Sunderland defeat to show them how many errors they made in possession and he will be expecting a huge improvement in their performance levels against the Foxes.

"On Thursday morning I showed the players, inside one minute and 40 seconds, 22 clips of all the mistakes in our ball possession and how do you win when you play like that.

"It’s the same with Leicester, they will press and they’ll play aggressive and every time you lose the ball it gives them a lift when they play at home.

"It can be different this Saturday because I wasn’t happy about the team and you can maybe expect some changes."

Southampton will need to improve if they are to have any chance of beating Leicester, as Nigel Pearson's side have been in such good form.

The Foxes have won five of their last six matches and are a team brimming with confidence as they battle to preserve their Premier League status.

Southampton, meanwhile, have struggled of late and their performances have fallen well short of their best.

The Saints appear to be feeling the effects of a gruelling season, but they cannot afford to switch off just yet.

With three games remaining, Southampton still have a chance of making it into the Europa League and they will be determined to finish the season strongly to give themselves the best possible chance of doing so.
