Leicester vs Southampton

Leicester return to Premier League action on Saturday evening.

The Foxes will head into the weekend’s action sat 4th in the Premier League, just one point adrift of 2nd place Liverpool.

This comes with Brendan Rodgers’ side unbeaten in their last four league outings.

However, Southampton will still likely prove a tough test for Leicester.

The Saints are most certainly overachieving this season and look well in with a chance of securing a Europa League spot this term.

Leicester team news

Ahead of the tie, Brendan Rodgers held his latest press conference on Thursday.

During the presser, Rodgers would provide a fitness update on his squad.

And for the most part, the team news was pretty positive, with Rodgers confirming that Cengiz Under is back whilst Ricardo Pereira and Caglar Soyuncu are also progressing well in their return to fitness:

“Cengo (Ünder) should be back with us this weekend, which is great news.

“Ricky Pereira, also, so that’s great for us. Probably a bit like Çağs (Çağlar Söyüncü), we just need to get him back step by step. He’s training with the team now and looking very good.”

Rodgers then confirmed that both Jamie Vardy and James Maddison are available for the weekend:

“Both those players are available. It wasn’t so much a rest. They couldn’t play, or if they did play, there was going to be a huge risk for them.

“They’ve had ongoing issues throughout the season unfortunately and that was a game where we saw a window to get some medical work done with them knowing we’ve got other players who can play.

“That’s worked well for us. They’ve re-joined the group so they’ll be available this weekend.”
