Leicester City vs. Southampton  Prediction and Match Preview

Leicester City and Southampton head into their fixture at the King Power Stadium on Saturday afternoon still looking for their first victory of the season.

With one draw apiece from their opening two fixtures, the Foxes and Saints currently occupy 15th and 17th place in the Premier League standings.

Unless there are any developments with the future of Fofana, the Frenchman should retain his spot in the Leicester backline.

However, Caglar Soyuncu may return in place of Daniel Amartey, and Kelechi Iheanacho is pushing or an opportunity in the final third.

That may lead to Kiernan Dewsbury-Hall dropping down to the substitutes’ bench, rather than transfer-linked Tielemans.

Hasenhuttl could make at least two changes in the final third with Aribo, Sekou Mara and Adam Armstrong all having cases to be recalled.

The rest of the Southampton side could stay the same unless Oriol Romeu is handed a chance back in the team ahead of Romeo Lavia.

Leicester City possible starting lineup:
Ward; Fofana, Evans, Soyuncu; Castagne, Tielemans, Ndidi, Justin; Maddison, Iheanacho; Vardy

Southampton possible starting lineup:
Bazunu; Bella-Kotchap, Bednarek, Salisu; Walker-Peters, Ward-Prowse, Lavia, Djenepo; Armstrong, Aribo; Adams
