Leicester City lost to Burnley last weekend, which prompted club manager Claude Puel to make a couple of changes to the team.
Kasper Schmeichel (knock), Vicente Iborra, Daniel Amartey (both hamstring) and Matty James (Achilles) are all sidelined.
Wilfred Ndidi is expected to return and play against the Saints after serving suspension. Marc Alrbighton and Christian Fuchs will push for recalls against the Saints.
Southampton’s three consecutive defeats in the Premier League games have dragged them down to relegation zone with five points adrift of safety.
Southampton are without a win in the last nine Premier League games. To make things even worse, they have failed to score in their last three visits to King Power Stadium.
Meanwhile, Southampton’s Jake Stephens is still suspended so we cannot see him play in this battle. Steven Davis on the other hand is injured which makes him impossible to be featured here.
There are only five games left to play in the Premier League. Leicester City will secure their top half finish by beating Southampton (Watch how this contest unfolds. Sign Up on 12BET to get the best match preview and Sportsbook betting odds).
