Leicester v Southampton: match preview

After beating Liverpool in their most recent league match, Southampton will travel with confidence to the King Power Stadium, where they gained sweet revenge last season for their infamous 9-0 defeat earlier in the campaign. Ralph Hassenhüttl’s side have lost only once on their travels this season and could climb above Leicester with a win. But with Danny Ings absent that seems an unlikely outcome even if Leicester have found the going curiously tough at home, winning only three of eight matches. Paul Doyle
