Leicester City vs Southampton team news

Both Southampton and Leicester City have managed to keep pace with the Premier League’s biggest teams so far this season and a victory for either side will have big implications at the top of the table.

Tonight’s visitors Southampton have some selection issues, though.

Saints boss Ralph Hasenhuttl is likely to miss top striker Danny Ings, who has netted seven times for Southampton so far this season, after the England International tested positive for COVID-19 following Saints’ 1-0 win over Liverpool.

Elsewhere, Southampton will be missing key personnel such as Jannik Vestergaard, Nathan Redmond and Moussa Djenepo.

Even some of Southampton’s youthful back-up options are affected with Michael Obafemi and Nathan Tella both ruled out of the Leicester game.

Leicester City manager Brendan Rodgers has some more positive team news than his counterpart.

Foxes dangermen Jamie Vardy and James Maddison are expected to return to the first team tonight after they missed the club’s FA Cup third round fixture at Stoke City last weekend.

Belgium international Dennis Praet is out for the foreseeable future, though, as he has a hamstring injury.
