Brendan Rodgers will be in desperate need for three points against Southampton on Saturday, after a poor start to the season that has seen them pick up just one point from their two games. The Foxes threw away a two goal lead against Brentford on the opening day before Mikel Arteta’s side put four past them at the Emirates on Saturday.
It was an improved second half display against the Gunners, but just two minutes after getting back in the game, Arsenal would shut the door firmly in their faces by going up the other end and scoring, not once but twice.
Southampton, on the other hand, came back from two goals down against Leeds at St.Mary’s on Saturday, with substitute Joe Aribo and defender Kyle Walker-Peters earning the Saints a much needed point after a run of bad results.
Ralph Hasenhuttl’s side head to the King Power without a win in their last 10 Premier League games (D5 L5) to face a Leicester side they beaten just once in the last seven meetings between the two teams.

Leicester vs Southampton match stats
James Maddison has been in fine form for Leicester at both the end of the last campaign and the start of this season, either scoring or assisting in each of his last six Premier League appearances, scoring five goals and providing four assists in that time. No English midfielder has been involved in more Premier League goals since the start of last season than the Leicester man (22 – 13 goals, 9 assists).
Leicester have both scored and conceded in more Premier League games than any other side since Brendan Rodgers took charge in March 2019 (74 games), while no side has conceded more goals than either Leicester or Southampton in the Premier League this season (6). With only Leeds (46) conceding more goals in 2022 than the Saints (44), we are expecting goals at the King Power, however maybe not as many as Leicester’s 9-0 win at St.Mary’s in October 2019.
