Southampton vs Leicester Match Details
Southampton vs Leicester kicks-off at 8.00pm at St Mary’s Stadium on Friday 25 October.
Southampton will be disappointed with eight points from their opening nine games. The Saints collected nearly 1.5 points a game after Ralph Hassenhutl took charge at St Mary’s last year but are currently well short of that haul.
Surprisingly, it is their home form that has been letting them down, and they’ve won just one point from their opening four home matches. That point came in a 1-1 draw against Manchester United, whilst they’ve also lost 1-2 to Liverpool, 1-4 to Chelsea, and 1-3 to Bournemouth.
Despite their poor home record, Southampton have at least managed to score one goal in each of their four home games, and the only time they’ve failed to score this season was in their opening match away at Burnley.
Leicester will travel to Southampton on the back of two successive Premier League away defeats, but there was no disgrace as those games were against Manchester United and Liverpool, and they lost by a single goal on both occasions. They’ve also drawn at Chelsea, whilst a win at Sheffield United also looks a good result considering how the Blades have been performing this season.
Southampton vs Leicester Head-To-Heads
Southampton and Leicester have met 26 times in the Premier League, with Southampton winning five, drawing six, and losing just two of their 13 home games. Meanwhile, Leicester have won seven, lost three, and drawn three of their 13 home games.
Strangely, both teams won 2-1 away from home against each other last season. That was the second successive win for Leicester at St Mary’s, a significant improvement in form considering they had failed to win any on any of their previous 11 visits. Indeed, Leicester were even more convincing in 2017 when they won 4-1.
No players stand out in the scoring charts over the last four matches, but it’s noticeable that Jamie Vardy didn’t score in any of them.
