Leicester City predicted lineup vs Southampton, Preview, Latest Team News, Prediction and Live Stream, Premier League 2020/21 – Gameweek 19
After a highly impressive performance in the FA Cup against Stoke City, Brendan Rodgers and his Leicester team take on Southampton in the Premier League, and Alley Sport is here with Leicester City predicted lineup vs Southampton. Leicester are on a 5 match unbeaten run and will hope to continue their solid form against an equally impressive Southampton who are as high as 6th in the league table.
Leicester vs Southampton, Match Preview
Leicester City have performed above expectations in the league this season, sitting at 3rd one point behind league leaders Liverpool. The Foxes are unbeaten in their last 5 matches in all competitions, recently defeating Championship club Stoke City 4-0 in the FA Cup 3rd Round. Playing on a cold night in Stoke, full-back James Justin opened the scoring for the Foxes, sending a right-footed effort from outside the box into the net on 34 minutes. Experienced player Marc Albrighton doubled Leicester’s lead from inside the box shortly before the hour mark.
New signing Timothy Castagne found Ayoze Perez, who converted from the centre of the box to the bottom right corner to make it three. Young winger Harvey Barnes finished the rout for Leicester on the 81st minute, sending the Foxes to the next round of the FA Cup, where they have drawn Brentford away.
Southampton only recently defeated Premier League champions Liverpool, with former Liverpool player Danny Ings scoring the only goal of the match. Manager Ralph Hassenhuttl will be hoping to build on this positive result and gain momentum as Southampton will try to be in the European qualification spots come end of this season.

Turkish forward Cengiz Under is a doubt for this match with an ankle injury, and so is midfield play-maker James Maddison, who was linked with a move to Manchester United last summer.
