Leicester pushed into EVENS for victory at Southampton



St Mary’s hosts Friday night football this weekend, as high-flying Leicester travel to the south coast to face a struggling Southampton side.

The Saints have only won two out of their first nine Premier League fixtures so far, with the last coming away at Sheffield United over a month ago.

The pressure is therefore being ramped up on manager Ralph Hasenhuttl. The Austrian is 12/1 to be the next top-flight head coach to lose his job- that is the same odds as Newcastle‘s Steve Bruce, who occupy the last spot in the relegation zone due to inferior goal difference compared to the Saints.

Speaking of goals, the hosts have only netted nine times so far this season. Winger Moussa Djenepo continues his progress after injury, but this game has come too early for him.

Danny Ings netted their only goal in the 1-1 draw at Wolves last week, and he is priced at 13/2 to bag first again here.

Southampton are a very patchy team. They have failed to find regular consistency for a while now though it would not be much of a surprise for them to cause an upset here. 21/10 for a home win and 12/5 for a draw.

Brendan Rodgers’ Leicester will be a massive scalp however. The Foxes are placed in third, even being tipped by many to get a place in next season’s Champions League (available at 7/4).

Youri Tielemans scored the winner last Saturday at home to Burnley after the came back from a goal down. It is 9/1 for them to win from behind again.

Southampton are not exactly a team that can sit back and soak up opposition pressure for a full ninety minutes. Their usual quite high line will suit Jamie Vardy perfectly though. He is a guaranteed cert to find his seventh league goal for the season at St Mary’s at 11/10.

Though Leicester are clear favourites at evens, it was the Saints who won the last encounter between these two 2-1 back in January.

It is 2-1 for that score line to be replicated, whilst over two goals and both teams to score is a safe 6/5.
