While Southampton have a glut of injury problems going into tonight’s game, Leicester City have some good team news ahead of their Premier League clash.

Jamie Vardy, a player who seems to relish being a thorn in many team’s side - including Southampton - is back in contention to play for the Foxes tonight.

Vardy has netted 11 goals in 16 Premier League games so far this season.

James Maddison, one of the team’s most prolific creative players, is also expected to make a return to the Leicester first team tonight.

Both Vardy and Maddison missed Leicester’s FA Cup third round fixture with Stoke City last week.

Leicester manager Brendan Rodgers does have one injury to contend with, though. Belgian Dennis Praet picked up a hamstring injury last weekend.
