  • Southampton have avoided defeat in their last seven league away games

 

The Premier League action on Saturday comes to a close when Leicester City entertain Southampton at the King Power Stadium in what looks set to be a thoroughly entertaining affair, both of these sides having their sights firmly set on European football for next season. Thus far, Saints boss Ralph Hassenhuttl is doing an excellent job at St Mary’s this season with the side well balanced and the players clearly knowing their roles inside-out. The south-coast side have avoided defeat in all-but-two of their last fifteen Premier League outings and these two defeats were each by a single goal against league leaders Manchester United and title-favourites Manchester City.

Southampton’s competitiveness makes them very appealing on the outright market and while they will be without the services of Covid-19 stricken Danny Ings this weekend, they have managed to claim something for their troubles numerous times without the England star. The Saints will be boosted by the return of Janik Vestergaad and Oriol Romeu for this clash and with the likes of Aston Villa, Everton and Everton coming away from this venue with something in the bag, we envisage Southampton doing the same.
