Predicted Southampton and Leicester City line-ups

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

To be played on Saturday 17th October 2015 at 14:00. Venue: St. Mary's Stadium, Southampton

Odds: Southampton 3/4, Draw 11/4, Leicester 7/2

Southampton welcome Leicester City to St. Mary’s on Saturday as domestic action returns following the latest international break.

Last time out Southampton defeated Chelsea 3-1 in their own backyard to make an emphatic statement of intent while Leicester defeated Norwich City 2-1 to maintain their outstanding start to the campaign.

As things stand Southampton are ninth in the Premier League with 12 points from a possible 24 while Leicester are three points and four places better off.

In early team news, Southampton are without goalkeeper Fraser Forster due to a knee injury while defender Florin Gardos is suffering from the same problem.

Forward Shane Long has an ankle problem but he has a 75 per cent chance of featuring at the weekend.

As for Leicester, they are without Matty James and Nathan Dyer, both due to knee injuries.

A win for Leicester could see them finish the weekend as high as second depending on how other results go while Southampton will be targeting a return to the top five.
