Leicester City vs Southampton team news

Today, the curtain will close on what ended up being an unspectacular Premier League season for Southampton, whose poor form since March has dampened the mood around St Mary’s.

Saints boss Ralph Hasenhuttl has three first-teamers who are unavailable for today’s visit to Leicester.

Tino Livramento remains out with a knee injury, while Fraser Forster and Romain Perraud are still unavailable after missing the midweek defeat to Liverpool.

Brendan Rodgers’ Leicester could welcome back a number of names after injury absences.

Youri Tielemans and James Justin missed the midweek draw against Chelsea but are reportedly in contention. Meanwhile. Ricardo Pereira and Hamza Choudhury, who were unused substitutes for that game, are also said to be available.
