Leicester City vs. Southampton Team News:

Southampton manager Ralph Hasenhuttl has a bit of a selection headache, with three strikers out. Both Danny Ings and Michael Obafemi are suffering from hamstring injuries.

Meanwhile, Charlie Austin picked up a two-game suspension for making an obscene gesture towards the visiting Manchester City fans in December.

Hasenhuttl will also be missing captain Pierre Hojbjerg, who is serving a four-match suspension for the red card he picked up in that 3-1 defeat to City.

Maya Yoshida is on international duty for Japan in the 2019 AFC Asian Cup. Ryan Bertran remains sidelined with his longstanding back injury.

Leicester City boss Claude Puel will be without defender Jonny Evans, who has a broken toe. However, the Frenchman could welcome young winger Harvey Barnes to the side after recalling him from a successful loan spell West Brom.
