Southampton vs Leicester City 13 December 2017: EPL Preview and Predictions

Southampton take on Leicester City this week at home at the St Mary’s Stadium. At this stage of the season, wins are very important so I think both teams will be wanting to leave this game with all three points to their name.

Leicester City will be on the road for the second time this as they travel south to Southampton. This travelling can cause fatigue and it will be important that this is managed well by the players. The Foxes are not as good as they once were but this is still a side that has enough talent to challenge most sides in the Premier League and they will need to do that in this game if they want to win. This team won against Newcastle United in their last outing and they will use that as confidence and moral support as they head into yet another away game.

On the other hand, Southampton will look to get three points at home. This team got a point against Arsenal in their last outing and that is a good sign for the Saints. Leicester City will be another test for Southampton and it will be interesting to see how well the Leicester City team is prepared since the Arsenal game would have been a very draining occasion.

With all that in mind, I think we are going to get another draw. Both teams are quite evenly matched and I don’t think either have the energy to go that extra mile and get all three points especially since they played only a few days ago. We are getting a good price on the draw and as a result that is going to be my suggested bet for this game.
