SOUTHAMPTON VS LEICESTER
KICK OFF: Saturday 25TH August 2018 | 16:00 CET
Premier League wk3 | ST MARY'S STADIUM
Are rejuvenated Saints set to add more misery to Leicesters start to the season
Southampton failed to register a goal in their first game against Burnley, but this could change on Leicester’s visit. The two sides drew blank last time out, but we could see a few goals in this one.
A point against Burnley was not a bad result for Southampton. Mark Hughes is determined to lead this side to the top of the half of the league, and a win against Leicester will be a positive step. New energy in the team plus a positive attitude make all things possible. Danny Ings made a promising start, and he’ll want to prove his worth to the St. Mary’s fans.
Leicester still commands respect, but the pressure may affect their performance. Reports already suggest that under-fire coach Claude Puel has two games to save his job and this match happens to be the second of the two.
Southampton is in pole position to win, but they may have to deal with Harry Maguire’s aerial threat and Jamie Vardy’s goal-poaching abilities.
